Suns guard Chris Paul also expressed his views over the game and stated, “We knew this wasn't going to be easy. We didn't expect it to be. It's hard.

We got to get ready for Game 6.” Suns guard Mikal Bridges added, “If you sulk about it, it's, the blink of an eye the season is going to be over. So, we'll learn from it, coach is going to show clips and what we have to do better, but we know what we have to do. But we're ready, man.”
