NBA Playoffs podcast with Joe Hawkes:

#1 The Phoenix Suns got some big scoring from Devin Booker (40 points) and Deandre Ayton (20) points good enough to beat the Los Angeles Clippers in game 1 on Sunday in Phoenix.

#2 The Clippers Chris Paul was out due to Covid 19 protocols how much did that handicap the Clippers.

#3 The Clippers got some scoring production out of Paul George who led with 34 points and Reggie Jackson with 24 but in the end the Clips came up short.

#4 Joe, Talk about the Suns general manager James Jones who just beat out the Utah Jazz vice president of basketball operations Dennis Lindsey for the Executive of the Year Award. The Sun did do a number on the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets to get this far and that might have made the difference for Jones winning the award.

#5 Tuesday is game 2 of the series in Phoenix and the Clippers are hoping to get Paul back in the line up they found out what a nemesis the Sun can be and if there were to drop game 2 they would have their hands full going back to Los Angeles down 0-2.
