Suns’ Big 3 combine for 85 in win over shorthanded Bucks

The Phoenix Suns have now won 11 of their past 14 after finishing atop the Milwaukee Bucks 114-106 at Footprint Center.

Devin Booker (32 points, four assists), Kevin Durant (28 points, 10 rebounds), and Bradley Beal (25 points, 10 rebounds) combined for 85 points to dispatch of a Bucks squad down Damian Lillard and Brook Lopez.

A back and forth opening two quarters saw the Bucks take a one-point lead into the half before an extended 31-15 Suns run saw them open up a lead of their own.

Their edge grew to as high as 15 in the final frame which proved enough as they held on for an eight-point victory in front of their home fans.

Despite hitting on just eight of their 28 three-point attempts (28.6%) and allowing 23 points off 13 turnovers, Phoenix managed to stay ahead having shot above 50 per cent from the field and finished on top in the rebounding battle.

The Bucks were led by Giannis Antetokounmpo (34 points, 10 rebounds) whilst Malik Beasley (22 points, 6-of-14 threes) added a scoring punch after Khris Middleton exited the game in the first half with an ankle sprain.

The Bucks return home to face the Timberwolves on Friday in Doc Rivers’ home coaching debut whilst the Suns do battle with the Jazz the same day.
