The Phoenix Suns came out victorious tonight over the Los Angeles Lakers with a final score of 130-104. 

This win improves the Suns’ divisional record to an impressive 7-0 and brings them within one game of regaining the top spot in the Western Conference.

With no Devin Booker due to a groin injury, Chris Paul finally had his night and racked up a season-high 28 points and eight assists.

It was only the second time this season that Paul has recorded 20 or more points, and it was a very encouraging sign from the veteran point guard.

But the main focus around Paul was the ongoing drama between him and the Lakers’ Patrick Beverly. 

This drama of course started with Beverley shoving Paul to the floor in Game Six of the 2021 Western Conference Finals; he was then ejected, and the Suns eliminated his team from the playoffs shortly after.

Pat Bev kept the trash talk alive tonight after giving Paul the “too small” treatment. The only problem is that the Lakers were down 26 points at the time…

Beverly finished the night with nine points and three turnovers.

Another bright spot from Phoenix’s win came from SG Damion Lee.

Lee tied a season high with 15 points by shooting 5 of 10 from beyond the arc.

While he can be extremely inconsistent at times, it is hard to stop Lee when he gets hot.

The Phoenix Suns will now have the opportunity to extend their winning streak to four games tomorrow night against the 11-20 Washington Wizards.
