Kevin Durant Leads Suns to Thrilling 2OT Win Over Jazz

NBA Roundup:

In a thrilling overtime matchup, Kevin Durant scored a game-high 39 points to lead the Phoenix Suns to a 140-137 victory over the Utah Jazz on Sunday night. Devin Booker added 26 points, including the game-winning free throws in the final seconds of double overtime, and dished out eight assists as the Suns won for the second time in Utah in three nights.

Lauri Markkanen had a monster game for the Jazz, scoring 38 points with 17 rebounds. He forced overtime with a bucket late in regulation. For a moment, it appeared that Markkanen would get a chance to force triple overtime, but officials reversed a ruling that would have sent him to the free-throw line with nine-tenths of a second left after determining that Durant had hit the ball before making contact with Markkanen's wrist.
