Devin Booker goes cold, Suns fall in six gamesJuly 20, 2021 | 09:46 PM
Devin Booker scored 19 points on 8-of-22 shooting (0-of-7 3-pointers) and added five assists, three rebounds, and six turnovers in 46 minutes as the Suns fell 105-98 in Game 6 to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Analysis: Booker did not have the stroke at all from distance on Tuesday, and really for the entirety of this series. Booker shot just 22.5% from distance through six games, his lowest mark in any series this postseason. His six turnovers were a series high, and the second-highest single-game total of the postseason. To put it plainly, Booker picked a bad time to have a bad game, and his first postseason is officially over as a result, though all in all, a trip to the finals is farther than anyone, including Booker probably could have anticipated before the season. Deandre Ayton also struggled immensely on offense as he scored just 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting (4-of-5 free throws), which was a far cry from the highly efficient play that he has produced all postseason. Jae Crowder had a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds, but even he shot just 4-of-11 from the floor (2-of-9 3-pointers).
