Phoenix laughed after the Western strongest’s extra-time match.
The Phoenix Suns won 117-113 against the Utah Jazz in the 2020-2021 NBA regular league at the Phoenix Suns Arena on the 8th (hereinafter in Korean time). Phoenix, who won seven straight games with the victory, reduced their ride to 1.5 games against Western No. 1 Utah, 스포츠중계 while Utah lost in a row on the day.
Phoenix played the frontrunner of the attack with Devin Booker, who dominated overtime, with 35 points and four rebounds. Chris Paul also took the win, leading the team with 29 points and nine assists to coordinate the game and a decisive three-pointer. In addition, Phoenix’s control of the right to offer (61-45) against the league’s top-ranked rebound team Utah also helped drive the victory.
Utah was a frightening performance by Donovan Mitchell with 41 points and eight rebounds, cooling Phoenix’s talk, but the team’s defeat was a fading light.
The first quarter steamer was up to Phoenix; Paul scored seven points to lead the offense, and also led the players to make the 13-2 RUN at the beginning of the game. But Utah was the one who took the lead in the first quarter; Utah creaked with a turnover early on, but Bogdan Bogdanovich and Mitchell found the feeling as they made one 3-pointer. Eventually, Utah ended with a point lead (21-20) with a goal-scoring run following Rudy Govere’s offensive rebound at the end of the first quarter.
Utah opened the second quarter with a score from Utah Mike Conley, but the lead didn’t last long. Phoenix brought the mood with Cameron Johnson’s 3-pointer, with Paul making a series of mid-range shots from right elbow in succession. Utah also fought back Mitchell and Bogdanovic, but was stopped by Booker, who scored 10 points in the second quarter alone; Phoenix ended the first half with a 51-40 lead.
The third quarter was simply a nanta: Utah fired a preemptive strike from the start of the quarter, with Mitchell and Bogdanovic scoring seven points. Phoenix then turned off a rush fire with a 3-pointer by Jay Crowder and kept the lead (60-52) with points from Booker and Diandre Ayton. Later, Utah scored with Mitchell and Joe Ingles Phoenix, Dario Sarich and Johnson.
But Utah was the one who took the lead following the first quarter. Utah narrowed the score to one point (76-77) with Conley handing Derek Faber an exquisite pass and then managed to score a break-through on the buzzer beater’s left. Utah reached the fourth quarter, bringing in a close lead (78-77) thanks to Conley’s last-minute performance.
The fourth quarter was no different from the third quarter: Phoenix scored to Paul, Torrey Craig and Ayton, raising pace just then Utah ace Mitchell began to move again. Mitchell started the break-through and made it to a three-point play that led to a foul, which also led to Jillsera Phoenix’s three-pointer and Booker’s fast-track score.
Paul then made a jump shot and occupied the advantage of the 102-99 Phoenix, but he tied it (102-102) with Mitchell’s 3-pointer 10.4 seconds before the end of the game. Phoenix tried the last shot by Booker, but turned away from the rim and the game went into overtime
I didn’t know the heat would cool down even in overtime. Phoenix had a valuable lead, six points clear of the rim, with Paul’s 3-pointer breaking the rim 1:2 before the end of the extension, centering on Booker, who scored seven points in overtime alone. Utah did not give up, but Mitchell and Conley succeeded in breaking through points in succession, leading the game to a close game (112-114), but there was not enough time to overturn the score.The goddess of victory eventually smiled at Phoenix
