The Phoenix Suns completed their four game sweep of the Denver Nuggets on Sunday night, winning Game 4 by a score of 125-118. Kaminsky did not appear in the game but his mere presence on the bench caused NBA MVP Nikola Jokic to cowardly get ejected in the third quarter.

Kaminsky played in seven minutes of two games in the sweep, scoring five points while grabbing two boards and dishing out two assists. It’s hard to say if Chris Paul and Devin Booker played better because they knew Kaminsky was ready to take their minutes if they struggled, but I think it’s likely.

The Suns now await the winner of the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers series, which the Jazz lead 2-1, to see who they’ll play in the Western Conference Finals. The Jazz have Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert on their team while the Clippers have long-time playoff hero Kawhi Leonard. Both would be worthy opponents for Frank the Tank and I am excited to see who he beats next.
