Suns Defeat Nets For 16th Consecutive Time And Tiberwolves Best Sixers In 2OT

On Saturday, the Brooklyn Nets welcomed the scorching Phoenix Suns to town. Obviously, they had the support of their home crowd. They also got a fantastic performance from Kevin Durant. But, like so many other teams in the future, it wasn’t enough to halt the Suns from winning. They won with 113-107 for the 16th time in a row, defeating Durant and his teammates.

Durant had 39 for the Nets and James Harden posted a triple-double (12 points, 13 rebounds, 14 assists) but the Suns just spread the scoring out so well and utilized their depth. Led by Devin Booker’s 30, they got double digits from four others and had all but one of the nine that featured with at least seven points. They’re firing on all cylinders right now, and it’s easy to see why with stats like that. In another notable game, the Minnesota Timberwolves held off the Philadelphia 76ers 121-120 in double overtime on Saturday. D’Angelo Russell was the main star despite Sixers’ big man Joel Embiid scoring 42 to lead all scorers while grabbing 14 rebounds. That’s because Russell not only put up 35 of his own, but he also produced the game-winning steal and assist for Taurean Prince’s game-winning layup. The result made both teams 10-10 on the season.
