Bouncing back from a series of back-to-back losses, a strong third quarter from the Suns was enough to push them back into the win column.

It was unknown if Devin Booker would be available to play, as he missed last night’s game with an ankle injury.

The official confirmation of Booker’s participation came just minutes before the opening tipoff, a decision that would ultimately prove wise for the Suns.

Booker delivered a stellar performance, erupting for 34 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists—his second-highest point total of the season.

Behind Booker was Kevin Durant, with 27 points on 10-14 shooting.

These two played a large role in a 3rd quarter that saw the Suns outscoring Memphis 34-21.

While Phoenix trailed by one after the first half, they seemingly flipped a switch coming out of the locker room. At one point, they went on a 14-0 run.

Looking ahead, the Suns are gearing up for a high-stakes matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers in the knockout round of the NBA In-Season Tournament.

This win-or-go-home game is scheduled to tip off at 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
