The Phoenix Suns overcame a challenging second quarter, securing a solid 120-107 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. This win marks the Suns’ fourth consecutive triumph, catapulting them to second place in West Group A of the In-Season Tournament, following the Utah Jazz’s defeat by the Los Angeles Lakers.

As Reported by AP News, The Suns’ success was spearheaded by Kevin Durant and Devin Booker. Durant delivered an impressive 31 points from 21 shots, while Booker contributed 28 points on 20 shots. Jusuf Nurkic also had a noteworthy performance, scoring 18 points for the second consecutive game and securing 12 rebounds, in what was his first game against his former team.

Despite Deandre Ayton’s 14 points in the first half for the Trail Blazers, his second-half performance waned, ending with just four points. The Suns showcased their efficiency with a 56.6% field goal percentage, outperforming the Trail Blazers’ 43.7%.

A notable aspect of the Suns’ strategy was their minimal reliance on three-pointers, attempting only 17 throughout the game. However, their dominance was evident in the paint, where they scored 66 points, overpowering the Trail Blazers’ defense.

Looking ahead, the Suns are set to face the Golden State Warriors in their next game, scheduled for tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m.”
