Phoenix, AZ – In a stunning turn of events, the Phoenix Suns orchestrated a remarkable comeback, ending the game with a 23-4 run to secure a 119-117 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night. Kevin Durant’s clutch free throws with 1.8 seconds left proved to be the decisive moment in this nail-biting encounter.
Grayson Allen, lighting up the court, tied a franchise record with an impressive nine 3-pointers, contributing 29 points to the Suns’ cause. The team, trailing by 17 points with just over four minutes remaining, displayed resilience and determination, fueled by Durant’s leadership on the court.
Durant, finishing the game with 27 points, played a pivotal role in the Suns’ comeback. His two crucial 3-pointers in the fourth quarter ignited the team’s surge, and Eric Gordon’s consecutive 3-pointers leveled the score at 115. Durant then stepped up with 30 seconds left, sinking two free throws to give the Suns a 117-115 lead, their first since the early moments of the game.
Devin Booker showcased his playmaking skills with 16 points and 11 assists, while Bradley Beal added 13 points to the scoreboard. Jusuf Nurkic’s double-double with 10 points and 15 rebounds also contributed to the Suns’ victory.
Despite the Kings’ efforts, led by De’Aaron Fox’s impressive 33-point performance and Domantas Sabonis’ triple-double with 21 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists, they couldn’t hold off the Suns’ late surge. The Kings have now suffered three consecutive losses.
As the Suns savor their comeback win, they look ahead to a matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday. On the other side, the Kings aim to bounce back as they host the Indiana Pacers on Thursday in what promises to be another exciting showdown in the NBA.
