Why Kevin Durant and Sun are in ‘big trouble’ after Game 1 loss to Timberwolves, according to Skip Bayless

The Suns have more than a few issues that need to be resolved.

The Phoenix Suns were eliminated in Game One and now the usual pundits like Skip Bayless are piling on.

The Suns dealt with a poor shooting night from star shooting guard Devin Booker, which led to a positive postgame shot from Kevin Durant. The three Suns players who received the most blame were also discussed.

On Saturday night, Bayless shared his “sky is falling” take on why the Suns are “in big trouble” against Anthony Edwards and the Timberwolves, replete with a downright disrespectful prediction on how Game Two at the Target Center will turn out, according to the “Undisputed” host himself.

Bayless didn’t bite his tongue when predicting doom and gloom for Devin Booker, Kevin Durant and the Suns.

The Suns got 31 points from Kevin Durant and 18 from Devin Booker on the night, while Bradley Beale and Royce O’Neal scored 15 and 14, respectively, for Coach Frank Vogel’s team. Coach Chris Finch’s Timberwolves got 33 points from Anthony Edwards, 18 from Nickeil Alexander-Walker and 19 from Karl-Anthony Towns.

Game Two is Tuesday night in Minnesota.

Fans went off in the comments as usual as it became open season for Kevin Durant and the Suns.

“KD beats the charges and wins a ring without Curry,” said one fan.

“KD is going to Wolves next year,” another added.

Another called the Suns “old men” but seemed to indicate they believe Phoenix will win the series in six games.

Yet another fan lashed out at Durant.

“KD needs a super team to be relevant,” they said.

Suns vs. Wolves on Tuesday

Game Two is starting to look like a must-win for the Suns against the Timberwolves on Tuesday, although coach Frank Vogel’s squad has the talent and experience to fight their way back from any deficit. Coach Chris Finch and the Timberwolves are flying high after their thrilling Game One victory and now the stage is set for Tuesday’s game.

If Beal and Booker can shoot again, the Suns could surprise the Timberwolves. Now it’s up to Coach Vogel’s team to go out and make it happen.
