The night started with the Suns jumping out to an early 20-point lead; however, an ugly second quarter resulted in Phoenix heading to halftime with the game all tied up.

In the second half, it was a game of streaks for both teams; the Suns would go on a quick 8-point run, then the Bulls would respond with one of their own.

While in the end the Suns did pull away with a win, after initially trailing by four with less than two minutes left in overtime, a whopping 22 turnovers by Phoenix was tough for fans to watch.

Surprisingly, it was not Kevin Durant who was the game’s leading scorer; instead, it was none other than Grayson Allen.

Allen was lights out from the three-point line, making 8 on 13 attempts, leading to a total of 26 points.

The last time Allen scored more than 26 points was during a 2022 playoff run with the Milwaukee Bucks.
