Booker Shines, Suns Hold Strong Late to Defeat Kings in Sacramento

The season series was split between the Phoenix Suns and Sacramento Kings this season, but the Suns looked to take the advantage against their division rival as the teams tipped-off on Saturday night.

Both squads were locked-in and ready from the start as the Suns shot 57.1 percent in the first quarter compared to the Kings 48 percent from the field. The lights-out shooting from each team made for a close first quarter, but Elie Okobo drew a foul and knocked down three free throws in the final second to give the Suns a 31-30 lead.

The Suns continued this momentum as they held the Kings to just 19 points in the second quarter and closed-out the first half on a 23-12 run.
