Oklahoma City Thunder (14-29, 14th in the Western Conference) vs. San Antonio Spurs (16-28, 12th in the Western Conference) San Antonio; Wednesday, 8:30 p.m. EST BOTTOM LINE: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and the Oklahoma City Thunder take on Dejounte Murray and the San Antonio Spurs in Western Conference action Wednesday. The Spurs are 9-17 in Western Conference games.
Chris Paul added 15 points and 12 assists as Phoenix won its sixth straight on the road and fifth consecutive in San Antonio. Spurs center Jakob Poeltl had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and Dejounte Murray added 18 points. Booker was 18 for 33 from the field and 5 for 13 on 3-pointers in eclipsing his previous high of 38 points, which he collected twice.
Phoenix Suns head coach Monty Williams has always talked about not wanting his team to get in the habit of relying on scoring flurries from Devin Booker or Chris Paul’s fourth-quarter takeovers. The way his group steps up even when they could potentially still win off those two things is a testament to his coaching job and how the Suns are a capital T team.
