In Episode 36 of the Valley of the Suns Podcast, the show discusses Devin Booker’s historic Game 1 triple-double, a Chris Paul update, Game 2 adjustments and Disney/Pixar’s “Luca.”

Welcome back, Valley Boyz and Girlz, to another episode of the Valley of the Suns Podcast!

In Episode 36, host Gerald Bourguet reacts to the Phoenix Suns’ big win in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, which of course revolves around Devin Booker dropping a historic 40-point, 13-rebound, 11-assist triple-double in his first-ever conference finals game.

Booker has risen to the occasion all postseason long, but in the Suns’ first playoff game without Chris Paul, he was the best player on the floor on his biggest stage yet, and it’s worth examining where his first career triple-double stacks up in NBA playoff history after he and the Suns’ youngsters carried Phoenix to a big series-opening win over the LA Clippers.

After reveling in Book’s big-time performance, it’s time for a Chris Paul update. What are the chances he’ll be ready to return for Game 2 or Game 3 of this series after testing positive for COVID-19?

From there, it’s on to potential adjustments for Game 2 of this Western Conference Finals matchup. While the Suns played a terrific game in Game 1, there are still a few areas where they can be better moving forward in the series.

Finally, for our latest G-Rated segment, it’s time to talk about Disney/Pixar’s latest movie, Luca, which is now streaming for free on Disney+. Does this charming story about sea monsters set in Italy live up to the Pixar hype?
