The Suns are back in the Western Conference Finals for the second straight year after dismantling the visiting Clippers in Monday's 127-107 home win in Game 7. Phoenix tied its franchise playoff high by hitting 15 3-pointers, led by Shawn Marion (30 points, nine rebounds, 5-of-9 3-pointers) and MVP Steve Nash (29 points, 11 assists, 4-of-5 3-pointers). For L.A., Elton Brand took advantage of the Suns' interior defense to the tune of 36 points on 16-for-26 shooting, and nine rebounds. The Suns shot 60 percent as a team and put five other players in double figures with Leandro Barbosa enjoying a stellar 8-of-10 shooting night on his way to 18 points. Phoenix will travel to Dallas to play Nash's former team, the Mavericks, in Game 1 of the West finals on Wednesday (8:30 p.m. ET, TNT).
