Alex Rodriguez appears to be asleep during Sun’s loss

Did Alex Rodriguez take a nap at court?

So it seemed on Sunday in Phoenix, where the former Yankees slugger, 46, was caught on camera with his eyes closed as the Mavericks rolled over the Suns, 123-90, in Game 7 of their Western Conference semifinals series.

The apparent snooze naturally caught the attention of Twitter, with the crowds comparing Rodriguez – who was sitting next to rumored girlfriend Kathryne Padgett – to the Suns’ performance.

“Sleep Like the Suns in the First Half,” the account for “Avry’s Sports Show” noticedwhile another joked“Why not?? The suns are.”

The Mavericks were 30 points clear at halftime, with Mavericks point guard Luka Doncic scoring 35 points in Sunday’s win, along with 10 rebounds and four assists in just 30 minutes.

“Honestly, I think we deserve it. We played hard the whole series. Maybe a few games here we weren’t ourselves, but we came here with a statement in Game 7. We believed. Our dressing room believed. Everyone believed. So I’m just happy,” Doncic said after the game, per ESPN.

Doncic wasn’t the only one celebrating as Padgett — a Dallas-based fitness competitor who was first linked to Rodriguez in January — later congratulated Mavericks owner Mark Cuban on the win.

“Congratulations!!!” she wrote in an Instagram story.

Padgett and Rodriguez have been spotted courtside during the NBA playoffs, particularly in Minnesota, in support of the Timberwolves, a franchise the ESPN analyst co-owns. Minnesota was knocked out by the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round.
