The night that Suns’ fans have been waiting for since June finally game to fruition 24 games in, as Phoenix’s Big 3 of Devin Booker, Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal played their first game together.

However, it was not the night any fan hoped for, as the trio could not help the Suns, who were still missing a lot of key role players, pull off the victory over the Nets.

The star trio scored or assisted on 97 of the team’s 112 points. Booker led the way with 34 points and 12 assists.

“We’ll figure it out, myself included, how to use those guys, how to push certain buttons,” Vogel said.

This game also marked the return of two of the most beloved members in Suns’ franchise history, as Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson came back to the Valley for the first time.

Next up for the Suns they will play the Knicks at 8 p.m. MST Friday night.
