While the game may have been over before it even started, the Spurs did make things interesting in the third quarter with a string of five-straight threes. However, this hot stretch quickly diminished, and the Suns went the full 60 minutes without trailing.

Chris Paul had himself a rare standout shooting night, ending with 22 points on 15 shots. The point god went 4-6 from deep, something that gave the Suns offense a tremendous boost.

And of course, while his role was not as large tonight, Kevin Durant was excellent with 18 points on 15 shots. The Suns remain perfect while Durant is on the court, as they hold a 7-0 record.

Remarkably enough, Durant has improved to a 20-1 record over the past 21 games, which leads any player in the NBA by a very large margin.


It was an overall well-rounded night as Phoenix had six players end with double digit-points, including, Kevin Durant, Deandre Ayton, Devin Booker, Chris Paul, Bismack Biyombo, and Torrey Craig.

The Suns have now officially clinched a spot in the playoffs and hold a 2.5 game lead over the Warriors for the fourth spot in the Western Conference.
