PHOENIX (AP) — It had been a downright depressing 24-hour stretch for the Phoenix Suns, who found out their starting center was suspended for 25 games and then immediately lost to the Denver Nuggets by one point in overtime.
The next night, with every reason to pout, the Suns didn't do it.
Instead, they came out and beat one of the NBA's preseason championship favorites.
Devin Booker scored 30 points, Kelly Oubre Jr. added 20 and the Suns beat the Los Angeles Clippers 130-122 on Saturday for their first win in the series in more than three years.
"It feels amazing," Oubre said. "Everybody chipped in. We fought through adversity once again, we're finding who we are and we're continuing to grow. That's the most beautiful thing about it."
