Booker went 2-for-2 from the foul line, despite not attempting free throws until the game's final seconds.

While Booker and Durant were the narrative for the Suns, they did receive significant contributions from their bench, 

an area in which they have struggled throughout the postseason.

Jock Landale outperformed starting center Deandre Ayton, who recorded nine rebounds and four points in 26 minutes while playing 22 minutes.
