Second-straight win, a term that almost feels odd to use given the Suns’ success over the past two seasons.
But tonight, two wins in a row is quite the accomplishment for an injury riddled Suns roster.
Without Chris Paul, Devin Booker, Cameron Payne, Cameron Johnson, and Deandre Ayton, Phoenix came out victorious over the Indiana Pacers with a final score of 110-107.
This is the first time that the Suns have won two straight since December 18th. Since then? 3-12
Jock Okogie stepped up big time with 24 points and 10 rebounds, it was his second double-double on the season.

Mikal Bridges was also a major contributor to the victory as he kept his hot shooting stretch alive. With 22 points tonight, Bridges has over 20 points in each of the last four matchups, his longest streak of the season.
A beautiful sight to see for Suns’ fans.
Mikal Bridges may not be THE guy but that is not to discredit him, he’s still a damn good player, and he shows exactly that on nights like tonight.

And lastly, Jock Landale continued to impress with a double-double of his own. Despite playing in only 17 minutes, Landale grabbed 10 boards and scored 10 points, providing a huge boost off the bench.
