Morgantown, West Virginia – The Phoenix Suns swept the Denver Nuggets 4-0 in the NBA western conference semifinals and will now face the winner of the Los Angeles Clippers/Utah Jazz series in the western conference finals.
The Jazz currently lead the series 2 games to 1, which means the Suns will have plenty of time to rest before the finals.
Former West Virginia Mountaineers guard Jevon Carter has only played in 18 minutes in ten postseason games, totaling 4 points, 3 assists and 2 rebounds on 2-7 from the field and 0-2 from three point range.
With that said, Carter has shown that he is capable of being a valuable contributor for the team. In the final regular season game of the season, Carter finished with 19 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists in 43 minutes in a 123-121 victory over the San Antonio Spurs while the Suns’ starters rested for the playoffs.
Whether Carter gets a lot of minutes during the playoffs or not, he has been a key reserve off the bench for a team that looks like it has a real shot at winning the NBA Championship this year.
If the Suns get past the winner of the Los Angeles Clippers vs. Utah Jazz series, they will face the Philadelphia 76ers, Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets or Milwaukee Bucks, all teams that are beatable at this stage of the season.
Jevon Carter, the ultimate teammate who puts winning above all else, has a real opportunity to get a championship ring in only his third season in the NBA!
