Watch Colin Cowherd describe every Eastern and Western Conference playoff team from the conference semifinals in just three words, as Colin plays the ‘3-Word Game’ during Monday's 'Best for Last' segment.
Phoenix Suns – ‘HOTTER THAN SUN’
“Eight straight wins, longest playoff win streak in franchise history. They’ve outscored opponents by 15 points per game during the streak, and Devin Booker is averaging 29 a game during the streak with a 52% field goal percentage. The Suns have also relied on the mid-range game – Chris Paul will shoot it, Devin Booker will shoot it – when you’re shooting 52% and you’re a shooting guard like Devin Booker and that dynamic, that’s why they’ve not only won eight straight, but they’re winning them by 15 per game.”
Los Angeles Clippers – ‘PAUL WASN’T APPALING’
“Paul George the last five games is averaging 32 points per game, 8 rebounds, and is shooting 45% on threes. Earlier, Al Harrington told us that he’s a ‘gym rat’, and gym rats usually work through their issues. When Kawhi Leonard got hurt my first instinct was ‘they’re doomed’, but Kawhi and Paul George are both great wings that defend, so it’s not like they went from being great on the wing to not having one, they still had Paul George, a 7-time All-Star. To this point they’re good enough without Kawhi to at least get through Utah.”
