However, the Suns stormed back and tied it up at 116 with a few minutes to go, but the Spurs responded with a 10-0 run to regain control and make this an easy one to close out. Devin Booker (out tonight) had a near triple double with 31 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds.. Kevin Durant had 28 points and six rebounds.
