The Phoenix Suns lifted their unbeaten streak to six by beating OKC Thunder with an impressive performance by Devin Booker.
With a 128-101 victory over Oklahoma City Thunder in the morning match, coach Monty Williams showed that they went to Orlando with a single goal of competing for the West’s final ticket to the Playoffs.
One day the Oklahoma City Thunder decided to drop and keep only Chris Paul in the starting lineup, the defeat is not too surprising when their opponent is a Phoenix Suns who are extremely determined at NBA Restart.
Do not use the main cast of players like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Steven Adams. Dennis Schroder, Nerlens Noel, and Danilo Gallinari, Thunder finished the second line with the lead of veteran defender Chris Paul. Coach Billy Donovan’s second line-up, however, was the better team in the first half as it ended with a 37-23 lead.
Even so, that’s the best of Thunder today. In the remaining 3 rounds, Devin Booker and his teammates completely took control of the match. They scored 105 points, compared with 64 points for Thunder, and easily got a blow-out (more than 20 points) in today’s match.
Phoenix Suns stay unbeaten in win over Oklahoma City Thunder
Devin Booker has maintained an impressive performance since the resumption of the season. In today’s match, despite being interrupted early from the end of the third half and not being on the field for the entire fourth half, Suns’ star is still the player with the most points on the field with 35 points, 5 rebounds with 4 assists, 52.9% finish rate, including 3 successful throws after 7 appearances.
Today’s stage is not Devin Booker’s own when the rest of the Suns players also play very evenly. Mikal Bridges, Cameron Johnson, Dario Saric, Cameron Payme, and Deandre Ayton were the players who scored over 10 points and contributed significantly to Suns’ overwhelming victory today.
On the Thunder side, Darius Bazley (22 points, 10 rebounds) is the most stable player in the day the team does not put much emphasis on winning and losing against an overly excited Phoenix Suns.
With this victory, Suns kept holding the opportunity to compete for a place in the play-in round when Devin Booker and his teammates were only 0.5 games behind Portland Trail Blazers (9th), and Memphis Grizzlies (8th) 1 match.
