The Phoenix Suns eliminated the Denver Nuggets with a 125-118 win in Game 4 to reach the Western Conference Finals.

Chris Paul had 37 points and seven assists in the closeout game almost two years after he was traded by the Houston Rockets to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Russell Westbrook in what many considered at the time to be a salary dump.

"A couple of years ago they were writing me off," said Paul. "You can't do this... This ain't about me. It's about us."

Paul previously reached the Western Conference Finals in 2018 with the Rockets.
