Monty Williams' words continue to ring in the ears of the Phoenix Suns.
After the Suns absorbed 2 straight losses to the Milwaukee Bucks to level the NBA Finals 2-2, perhaps it's no surprise that Devin Booker quoted his coach ahead of Sunday's (Manila time) Game 5 in Phoenix.
"Everything you want is on the other side of hard," Booker said Friday.
The Suns return to Phoenix, where they have won 8 of their 10 home games in the playoffs.
Booker erupted for 42 points in the 109-103 setback in Game 4. Chris Paul was limited to just 10.
Meanwhile, Khris Middleton scored a playoff career-high 40 points, while Giannis Antetokounmpo collected 26 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists for the Bucks.
