After a slow shooting start, the Suns big three took over, accounting for 85 points by the end of the game.

Kevin Durant, in particular, following a 0-4 1st quarter, made 14 points in the 4th quarter, allowing the Suns to pull away with a win. Durant ended the game with 28 points.

But ahead of the pack was Devin Booker, with 32 points, his highest point total in over 4 games.

The Suns, who are notorious for their 4th quarter struggles, outscored Milwaukee in the final 12 minutes. At one point, their lead grew to as much as 15.

While the Bucks were shorthanded, as they were missing Damion Lillard and Brook Lopez, they have now lost three of their last 4 games. Additionally, this loss snapped a 26-game winning streak while playing on Tuesday.

On the other hand, the Suns have won 11 of their last 14 games and are currently on a 16-6 stretch now fully healthy.

Next up for Phoenix is a matchup against the Utah Jazz on Thursday. Tipoff is scheduled at 7pm.
