Without Devin Booker, the Phoenix Suns did not trail for a single minute in their 129-115 home win over the Utah Jazz.

The Suns have now won five straight games inside Footprint Center.

In the 1st quarter, Kevin Durant led the Suns to an explosive start by contributing 19 points on 8-13 shooting. Beal also went 3-3 from deep, ending the quarter with 9 points.

Durant and Beal ended the night neck and neck, with KD finishing with 31 points and Beal finishing with 30 points.

While the Suns once-19-point lead did get cut down to just three points at one point in the 4th quarter, Phoenix answered with a pair of three-pointers.

Off the bench, Drew Eubanks played a large role. To go with 7 rebounds, Eubanks scored 12 points, stepping up when Jusuf Nurkic needed some rest. 12 points ties a scoring high since early November.

Notably, the Suns recorded a season high 37 assists, led by Grayson Allen who recorded a career-high 14.

Over the last 15 games, the Suns have picked up 12 wins, moving them closer to the wild top-4 race in the Western Conference.

Next up for Phoenix is a one-game road trip, where they will take on the Warriors on Saturday night.
