LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Devin Booker scored 35 points and the Phoenix Suns protected their playoff hopes by beating the Philadelphia 76ers 130-117 to remain undefeated in the NBA restart.
Booker became the Suns’ career leader with his 91st 30-point game, breaking a tie with Walter Davis.
Mikal Bridges had 24 points and Ricky Rubio had 16 points with 10 assists for the Suns, who pulled into a ninth-place tie with Memphis in the Western Conference playoff race.
Phoenix is 7-0 as the only undefeated team in the restart and an unlikely factor in the tight race for a spot in this weekend’s play-for the final playoff spot.
The 76ers have fallen to 3-3 since the NBA restart.
The team will return to the court tonight at 6:30 p.m. against the Toronto Raptors.
