The Suns Rise
On Wednesday night, two Western Conference foes that will surely duke it out for the top seed in the west squared off at Footprint Center. In what was a hotly contested game for the regular season, the Suns won, 134-105. Australian newcomer, Jock Landale added 17 points off the bench for Phoenix on his 27th birthday, and All-Star forward, Devin Booker poured in 34 points for the home team.
Booker was also seen scuffling with Warriors forward, Klay Thompson, a verbal spat that continued until Thompson was ejected. There is surely no love lost between these two Pacific Division rivals. They will meet three more times during the regular season, a four game series that will undoubtedly have implications on the postseason.
