Phoenix Suns drop 2nd straight in loss to Rockets; Durant reaches milestone

Kevin Durant’s milestone and Bol Bol’s season-best performance were tainted as the Phoenix Suns (33-24) lost 114-110 at the Houston Rockets (25-31) on Friday.

In their third consecutive game without Bradley Beal (hamstring), the Suns dropped their second straight since returning from the All-Star break.

Durant had the game-high 28 points, and passed Carmelo Anthony for ninth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list early in the fourth quarter. Durant added 11 rebounds and the team-high eight assists.

Bol Bol tremendously stepped up for Phoenix’s usual starting center Jusuf Nurkic, who was sidelined from a right ankle sprain. Bol had 25 points, team-high 14 rebounds, one steal, and one block in 26 minutes off the bench. Devin Booker matched Bol’s 25 points in the loss.
