PHOENIX — Go Suns! The team is headed to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1993.
Fans gathered in Phoenix overnight to greet the team as they arrived back in the Valley following their big win over the LA Clippers Wednesday night.
And of course, the Suns had a celebration of their own in the locker room.

They'll be taking on either the Atlanta Hawks or Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Finals.
Some Arizona officials, sports teams, and public figures also shared their excitement online:
We are in our feels this morning after the @Suns knocked off the Clippers, and are NBA Finals bound. It’s something this team and their fan base have not seen in nearly three decades, and we have fans on our force who have been cheering for this since then. #RallyTheValley pic.twitter.com/jZ3doU66do— Phoenix Police (@PhoenixPolice) July 1, 2021
