Fantastic News: Kevin Durant leads Phoenix Suns to double-OT NBA win over Utaz Jazz……

On November 19, the Suns defeated the Jazz 140-137 in a thrilling double-overtime National Basketball Association game because to “good offensive momentum.” Kevin Durant, the standout player for Phoenix, scored 39 points and stopped Utah’s Lauri Markkanen at the final buzzer.

Devin Booker led the Suns with 26 points, and Durant contributed eight rebounds and ten assists. With 38 points and 17 rebounds, Markkanen led Utah.

With 43.2 seconds remaining in the second overtime, Durant scored eight baskets to give the Suns a 138–135 lead.

Said Durant: “I thought we had good momentum on the offensive side of the ball all game. We stayed with that throughout the fourth quarter and the two overtimes.”

Markkanen had a last chance, with officials initially ruling he was fouled by Durant on a failed three-point attempt. But that call was overturned on review and the Suns had the win.

Said Durant: “It was ridiculous to even call that. I knew I blocked the shot and I knew I didn’t touch him at all. But that’s just how the game is.”

However, Markkanen added: “I thought (it was a foul). I was getting ready to shoot three free throws.”

Utah had trailed much of the night before Markkanen forced the first overtime with a lay-up with 20.3sec left in regulation.

Phoenix jumped to a 123-118 lead in the first extra session, but Utah clawed back and Collin Sexton forced a second overtime with a put-back lay-up.

Durant notched his 12th straight game with 25 or more points, the longest such streak in Suns history.

Durant stated, “On off days and before games, I’m just trying to stay prepared. I’m just trying to follow the game plan to execute as much as I can and play with a calm and free spirit.”

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Houston Rockets 105-104, paced by superstar LeBron James’ season-high 37 points.

With 24.2 seconds remaining, Austin Reaves, who was fed by James, made a three-pointer to give the Lakers a 103-100 lead. With four seconds remaining, Alperen Sengun’s lay-up knotted the score at 104-104.
