Due to the Golden State Warriors’ recent run, the Phoenix Suns are the best team in the NBA and confirmed it after tonight’s victory over the Indiana Pacers. Although the local team isn’t doing a great job this season, they still did everything in their power to defend their ground an Gainbridge Fieldhouse. But they encountered a Phoenix Suns team inspired by Devin Booker. Despite Justin Holiday scoring 25 points and Domantas Sabonis’ 14 points with 14 rebounds, the Pacers weren’t a good match for Booker and Ayton. Deandre got a decent evening with 27 points and 12 rebounds in Indiana.
But the best player on the court was Devin Booker, who had been playing below his average self in recent games. Tonight’s was quite different as he dropped an impressive 35 points and was unplayable against the Pacers. He was moving quickly through the second half, which was the ideal moment for him to take out his entire repertoir. Ayton was the one who had an absolute blast in the first half with 21 out of his 27 points scored in the first two quarters. A game that ended with a comfortable 112-94 win for the Suns in another away game.
What’s next for the Suns and the Pacers?
Phoenix Suns confirm themselves as the best team in the NBA with an incredible 32-9 record after tonight’s victory against the Pacers. As we’ve said before, they are confirmed as the best team in the NBA right now above the Warriors. As they go through this five-game tour through the country, the Suns are set to visit the Pistons in Detroit on Sunday. Pacers reached a 15-28 record after tonight’s defeat and will rest for two days before making a trip to Los Angeles to face the Clippers and start their own five-game tour through the West.
