Kevin Durant and Devin Booker Talk About 0-2 Start vs Wolves

Kevin Durant and Devin Booker spoke for the first time for the Phoenix Suns 0-2 against the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

The Suns' best players have struggled to keep pace this series, but Devin Booker doesn't seem worried.

“Don't count us out,” Booker said postgame. “It's a series for a reason. I don't think any road team has won so far. I know that has nothing to do with us, but it's just the way it is.”

Kevin Durant echoed Booker's words and encouraged Suns fans not to give up on the team.

“You can't quit right now,” Durant said. “Sh*t, I need more than anything. I know it's been a disappointing last few games, I mean the season for our fans, but we need you more than ever now you're coming home for Game 3.”

Phoenix's third star, Bradley Beal, also spoke after the game and said the team should be better at dealing with adversity during games.

“You have to,” Beal said. “Whatever is needed as a team. We have to be better at coming together in those times. It's crazy, one's energy is in the wrong place, one's mind is in the wrong place.”

The Suns stars struggled against Minnesota's stifling defense for the most part.

Booker is averaging 19.0 points, 5.0 assists and 2.5 rebounds on 37.9 percent from the field over two games. Durant had 31 points in Game 1, but managed 18 points on 6-15 shooting in Game 2.

Game 3 is set for Friday in Phoenix, and it looks like a win for the Suns.
