The Phoenix Suns aren’t a basketball team that can be considered as being out of a playoff position at this point in time, however, it will be difficult to recover from what the OKC Thunder did to them in a swift 24 minutes on Sunday night.
As the Thunder were down by 20 points in the early part of the game, the Thunder used smaller lineups and extreme chances on their way to a stunning win. OKC outscored the Suns by 20 points in the final 24 minutes of the game. Angel.co reports yet again. Westbrook inched as close as possible to another triple-double game as he had 33 points, 7 assists and 9 rebounds. Dion Waiters showed why he is valuable to this team as he chipped in 18 points, along with Anthony Morrow and D.J. Augustine, who both had respectable games to help them back into the game for a victory.
The Suns were unable to find a rhythm on the defensive end and as a consequence they are back by four games for the final playoff spot in the competitive Western conference. Oklahoma City has also moved ahead of 9th place New Orleans Pelicans by 2.5 games, who is another team that is battling for the final playoff spot in the Western conference.
