Chris Paul led the Phoenix Suns into their first NBA Finals in 28 years, beating the Los Angeles Clippers 130-103 on Wednesday night to close out the Western Conference finals in six games. Paul scored 41 points and Devin Booker added 22 to send the Suns to their third finals appearance in franchise history. Paul reached the NBA Finals for the first time in his 16-year career on the same Staples Center court where he helped bring the Clippers to respectability over six seasons that ended in 2017.
