Watch Kevin Durant go off for 38-9-9 lifting Suns past Jazz
It will be a few weeks before we see the Suns’ big three on the court together, but when the two who are healthy are playing like this the Suns will be just fine.
Kevin Durant went off on the Utah Jazz Friday night with 38 points, nine rebounds and nine assists in the Suns win over the Jazz.
With their three stars, the Suns have chosen to go without a traditional point guard on the roster and the risk of that became obvious when Devin Booker was out injured. However, in the two games he has been back the Phoneix offense has looked much better and against the Jazz Booker had 24 points and 15 assists.
It’s a tough loss at home for the Jazz, who played one of their better games of the season — Jordan Clarkson poured in 37 — but lost because they ran into a hot-shooting Suns team that knocked down 54.5% of its 3-pointers.
