Phoenix comes back to claim victory in Philadelphia

Two of the NBA coconuts faced each other last night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

It was a very good match. Joel Embiid, in top form, led with 34 points and 12 rebounds to a Sixers who did not lose face of the game at any time and that in the third quarter, thanks to a 17-2 run, got up to 14 points up . They were playing well, but the Suns were not going to be daunted by that, they have shown throughout the campaign that they can end up claiming victory in any context

With Devin Booker at his best level –his 35 points corroborate it–, they annulled the disadvantage and turned the last quarter into a constant give and take in which the shooting guard himself ended up passing sentence by scoring seven of the Suns’ last nine points. Philadelphia fought to the end, but Phoenix was simply better in the crunch.

“Our goal is what everyone knows it to be, but our mission is to do things like we did tonight on the road to get there,” says Monty Williams, head coach of a Suns that has won 14 of its last 15 games.

The reality is that the path of Phoenix is ​​being practically immaculate while its pieces do not stop shining. Beyond Booker, Chris Paul signed against the Sixers another complete performance of 16 points and 12 assists, while Mikal Bridges went up to 23 points. For Philadelphia, Tobias Harris accompanied Embiid with 30 points.
