The Phoenix Suns dominated the San Antonio Spurs 133-95 on Sunday; Phoenix was led by Deandre Ayton‘s 25 points and ten rebounds. Ayton was outstanding against the Spurs shooting 1o-14 from the field. The Suns outscored the Spurs 36-11 and pretty much put the game away.
The Suns shot 52% from the field and made 19-37 from the three-point line. Miles Bridges shot 7-11 from the field and 6-7 from the three-point line. Dario Saric also hit 4-5 from beyond the arc. Phoenix had a season-high 38 assists, led by Devin Booker‘s eight. You should get high-percentage shots when you share that basketball and hit the open man.
“Just reading the defense and taking what the defense gives us,” Booker said. “Everybody shares the ball on this team. They threw a lot of blitzes and different types of defenses out there. Just get off the ball. The ball always moves faster than the defender.”
Spurs Cold From Three
San Antonio shot only 6-31 from three-point land; you will not win many games shooting like that. As the game continued, you would think the Spurs would not shoot as many threes when they missed a lot. The suns also did a good job flying around contesting threes at times.
Phoenix scored 46 bench points; Jock Landale led the way with 12 points, while Landry Shmaet added ten points. Getting bench production is crucial to winning games; the Suns had six players score points off the bench. They also pitched in with rebounding and sharing the basketball. Josh Okogie had 11 rebounds and six assists.
