PHOENIX — Editor's Note: The above podcast is from February 2, 2021
Devin Booker scored a season-high 36 points, Mikal Bridges added 22 and the Phoenix Suns rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 119-113. The Suns have won six of their past seven games while the Cavaliers have dropped four straight.
Booker propelled the Suns to victory this time by making 14 of 27 shots, including 5 3-pointers.
The teams went back and forth down the stretch until Bridges hit two free throws to give the Suns a 117-113 lead with 17.2 seconds left. Collin Sexton led the Cavs with 23 points while Darius Garland had 17. Andre Drummond added 15 points and 14 rebounds.
The Cavaliers were without forward Larry Nance Jr. on Monday. Nance broke his left hand Saturday against Milwaukee and will be out six weeks, according to the Cavs. Nance posted on Twitter on Monday that he had surgery.
Nance has played in 19 games this season, starting 18. He's averaging 9.3 points and 6.8 rebounds. Nance's injury has left the Cavaliers thin in the frontcourt since Kevin Love is also out with a calf injury.
