The Phoenix Suns trail the Denver Nuggets 3-2 in the Western Conference semifinals and are now on the brink of elimination in what is a 2021 rematch.

Phoenix swept that series, but the Nuggets entered these playoffs as the top seed in the Western Conference led by two-time defending MVP Nikola Jokic.

And following the Suns’ 118-102 loss in Game 5 on Tuesday night, the seven-game series will head back to Phoenix for Game 6 at Footprint Center.

Arizona Sports will carry the entire Suns playoff run.
