The Dallas Mavericks blitzed the top-seeded Phoenix Suns with a 123-90 knockout on Sunday night, advancing to the Western Conference finals for the first time since 2011.

After the Game 7 loss, the Suns star guard Chris Paul (10 points and four assists) talked about whether this was his best shot at a title:

“They said that last year. They probably said it back in ’08. Every time you lose, they’re gonna say it’s your best chance … but we’ll be back next year. I ain’t retiring tomorrow, thank God.”
