Suns Spread The Love To Beat Hornets

Jonathan Grant | January 3rd, 2022

The Charlotte Hornets have proven to be a trickier team than many expected to see on the floor this season. That, however, didn’t seem to affect the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night as they found a way to win yet again despite being fairly depleted. They did so with the same formula that they so often employ: by spreading the scoring load around and relying on their depth.

Devin Booker led the way with 24 points and they missed the presence of big man Deandre Ayton, but they still had seven players total get at least ten points in the outing. On top of that, Chris Paul, who only scored seven, was able to dish out 16 assists in the 133-99 road romp, sending the Suns to 28-8 and keeping them just half-a-game off the pace of the Warriors in the Western Conference race. Charlotte got 17 from Lonzo Ball in a defeat that leaves them at 19-18 thus far.
