The Phoenix Suns had a strange situation during Game 3 of the Denver Nuggets series.

While Devin Booker and Kevin Durant stole the show by combining for 86 points, DeAndre Ayton struggled.

The center could not find its rhythm and once again struggled to make an impact in the game.

Ayton was sent to the bench late in the game, and was not happy about it.

He even completely ignored the veteran when Chris Paul tried to shake his hand.

Ayton was expected to take another step this year, but it seems that he does not have the maturity.

He’s crucial if the Suns plan to slow down Nikola Jokic.

That hasn’t happened yet, and it’s imperative that Aten gets its head in the right place if the Suns are to have any chance in this series.

Things haven’t been easy for Ayton, who at times looks lost on the court and many question his effort.

Many also believe that her relationship with Monty Williams has broken down and that she does not want to be with Sun for long.

The Nuggets are taking advantage of Ayton so far, leading the series 2-1.

Game 4 could be crucial for both teams, and Denver will again look to take advantage of Ayton’s struggles.

The onus of saving the Suns may fall on Booker and Durant, but with Ayton playing at his current level, the job will be tough to accomplish.
