Suns’ Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton set to battle in NBA 2K Tournament finals

Devin Booker, DeAndre Ayton, Suns

The Phoenix Suns are still seeking their first championship since joining the NBA in 1968, and haven’t made an appearance in the NBA Finals since 1993 — a five-game loss to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. And the team hasn’t even made the playoffs since the 2009-10 season.

At the moment, though, the Suns will be the only franchise that can claim any type of NBA-affiliated crown. After the semifinals of the players-only NBA2k20 tournament were played earlier Saturday, the 2k Finals are set with an all-Phoenix matchup, as Suns teammates DeAndre Ayton and Devin Booker will face off in the championship round at 9 ET on ESPN.

In the first semifinal matchup, Booker, the No. 5 seed (based on his 2k rating), took down the No. 8 seed, Los Angeles Clippers’ Montrezl Harrell. Booker won the first game using Harrell’s own Clippers, defeating Montrezl’s Houston Rockets 68-54.

In the second game of the best-of-three series, Booker won a nail-biter, 65-62, using the Toronto Raptors, as Harrell took the Milwaukee Bucks.

On the other side of the bracket, no. 10 seed Ayton silenced the smack-tackling Patrick Beverley (no. 14 seed), using a fully-healthy Brooklyn Nets squad to top Beverley’s Boston Celtics, 75-69. The Suns sophomore center then won the second contest 74-67, using his real-life team, Phoenix, while PatBev tried his chances with the Denver Nuggets.

The winner of the tournament wins $100,000 for a charity of their choosing.

No word if they’ll finally be a championship parade through downtown Phoenix.
