Oklahoma City
Phoenix

[PHOENIX] — The Phoenix Suns played host to the Oklahoma City Thunder last night and the homeside took care of business. A 120-99 win has the Suns and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Phoenix's record up to 23-57 on the season, while the loss drags Oklahoma City's down to 45-34. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Suns. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was Devin Booker leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 37 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 38 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Booker included - and the most important part is that the Suns walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Booker in the winning effort was T.J. Warren. Had it not been for Warren rounding out the Suns's attack with 23 points, 16 rebounds and 0 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Suns walking away victorious was Phoenix's ability to limit Oklahoma City's offensive output. By holding the Thunder to less than they usually produce the Suns made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Suns will be a date with the Dallas Mavericks while the visiting Thunder will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Denver Nuggets.
