Booker and Paul help NBA-leading Suns advance to 76ers, 114-104

PHOENIX ( Associated Press) — Devin Booker scored 35 points, 19 points and 14 assists to Chris Paul as the NBA-leading Phoenix Suns beat the Philadelphia 76ers 114-104 on Sunday to win their eighth straight game.

It was an interesting matchup between two teams tracking the NBA Finals. The Sons hold the No. 1 seed at the Western Conference and the league’s best record, while the 76ers are fighting Milwaukee, Boston and Miami for the top spot in the East. The 76ers’ loss is tied with the Bucks, who are half a game behind the Celtics and Heat.

The Phoenix is ​​61–14, one win shy of trying for a franchise season win record. The 76ers had broken their three-game winning streak, despite Joel Embiid scoring another big game of 37 points and 15 rebounds.
