Chris Paul’s immediate reaction to shocking Deandre Ayton game-winner for Suns in Game 2

Chris Paul Deandre Ayton Suns

What did we just see? The Phoenix Suns just stole victory right from the jaws of defeat against the Los Angeles Clippers, thanks to a stunning game-winner from Deandre Ayton.

The third-year big man slammed home the buzzer-beating bucket with 0.9 on the clock.

Out of all the spectators watching the action, there was probably no one more excited than Suns All-Star Chris Paul. The point guard let out a triumphant shout on Twitter moments after the crazy play.

After a few minutes to compose himself, Chris Paul had to give a shout out to Suns coach Monty Williams for the spectacular play he drew up.

The Suns are firmly in the driver’s seat in the Western Conference Finals thus far. They hold a commanding 2-0 lead over the Clippers, despite missing Chris Paul for the first two contests. But the LA side is missing their star as well, with Kawhi Leonard still recovering from his ACL injury he sustained in the West Semis against the Utah Jazz. The Clippers have also erased back-to-back 0-2 deficits in the prior series, which means the Suns aren’t out of the woods yet.

But with Chris Paul expected to return soon and Deandre Ayton playing like the number one overall pick that everyone thought he’d become, the Suns look like they’re well on their way to the NBA Finals.
