NBA: Phoenix Suns Beat Cleveland Cavaliers 120-115

Devin Booker scored 35 points, Chris Paul had 12 assists and made four free throws in the final 8.8 seconds, and the Phoenix Suns extended their winning streak to 14 games by holding off the Cleveland Cavaliers 120-115 on Wednesday night.

Phoenix’s run started with a win over Cleveland on Oct. 30, coming after a 1-3 opening to the season for the defending Western Conference champions. The Suns have been perfect since and improved the NBA’s best road record to 7-1.

The young Cavs gave the Suns everything they could handle, and if not for Paul, a couple of calls that could have gone either way and Cleveland’s Ricky Rubio missing three free throws in the final seconds, the streak might have ended.

The win was also the 100th with the Suns for coach Monty Williams, who is in his third season with the club.

Jarrett Allen had 25 points and 11 rebounds, and Cedi Osman added 23 points for Cleveland, which dropped its fifth straight. Darius Garland scored 19 before fouling out late.

Paul finished with 17 points and JaVale McGee added 13 points and 12 rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench
