Kevin Durant’s 32 points propel Suns to fifth straight win against Warriors

In a technical-filled showdown, the Phoenix Suns (9-6) secured their fifth straight win as Kevin Durant’s 32 points guided them to a 123-115 victory against the struggling Golden State Warriors (7-9) on Wednesday night.

Despite a late rally by the Warriors, the Suns, led by Durant and Devin Booker’s 25 points, held on to their lead, showcasing resilience in a game filled with challenges.

Durant and Booker’s combined free-throw prowess, going 28 for 29, played a crucial role in securing the victory for the Suns. The team as a whole was efficient from the free-throw line, making 44 of 52 attempts.

The Warriors, on the other hand, have struggled, losing seven of their last eight games and falling to a 7-9 record.

Chris Paul, making a return to Phoenix, faced an ejection in the second quarter after receiving two technical fouls for arguing.

Despite Paul’s ejection, the Suns maintained control, leading the entire second half. Eric Gordon’s free throw in the third quarter pushed the lead to 83-60, but the Warriors, even without key players like Draymond Green, made a late push, narrowing the gap to 118-115 with 19 seconds left.

In a game marked by intensity and technical fouls, the Suns weathered the storm, securing their fifth consecutive win.
