How do the Suns recover from such a devastating loss?

It’s one thing to lose in heartbreaking fashion, a la Mario Elie and his 1995 “kiss of death”. When that happens, although it hurts, you know that you are close. A roster tweak here, a coaching adjustment there. You have confidence that your team can run it back the following season.

It’s completely another to lose in the manner that the Phoenix Suns did in Game 7 of the 2022 Western Conference Finals at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks.

It begs the question, how do you recover from this?

This wasn’t just a Game 7 loss, which is something that you can put in the rearview and overcome.
