NBA roundup: Suns send Sixers to first loss

NBA roundup: Suns send Sixers to first loss

The former Kentucky Wildcat eclipsed the 6,000 point mark of his career late in the fourth quarter, making him the 8th youngest (23 years, 5 days old) player in National Basketball Association history to reach 6,000 points. "The fans are getting what they want - a hard-working team that pushes the issue every night".

Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker poured in 40 points to hand Philadelphia their first loss of the season Monday night.

Booker's 40 point performance was efficient, as he knocked down 15-of-19 shot attempts, including a flawless 7-of-7 from the free throw line.

The Suns now sit second in the Western Conference with a 5-2 record from their opening seven matches.

Playing without suspended star Joel Embiid, the Sixers (5-1) were led by Horford's 32 points.

Embiid served the second game of his two-game suspension for an altercation with Minnesota's Karl Anthony-Towns last week. Tobias Harris added 24 points and Furkan Korkmaz had 20.

Booker is showing he can play off ball rather than be forced to facilitate everything on offense, and the team's defense has been holding up through seven games.

Up the West Coast in San Francisco, the injury-ravaged Golden State Warriors finally recorded their first victory at their new Chase Center.

Rookie forward Eric Paschall hit a key three-pointer with 4:05 remaining and finished with 34 points and 13 rebounds on his 23rd birthday, as the Portland Trail Blazers were defeated 127-118. Trail Blazers center Hassan Whiteside added 22 points and 11 rebounds after missing one game with a bone bruise in his left knee.

James Harden scored 44 points and caught 10 rebounds and led the Houston Rockets to a 107-100 victory over host Memphis Grizzlies. In 25 minutes per game, the Australian is averaging 16.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.3 blocks shooting 38.9% from beyond the arc. Harden was called for a flagrant-one foul after a review by officials.

Nets 135, Pelicans 125: In New York, Kyrie Irving had 39 points and nine assists, and Brooklyn withstood Brandon Ingram's career-high 40 points to beat New Orleans.

Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded 34 points and 15 rebounds as Milwaukee rode a third-quarter surge and overcame a freaky delay to the game and roll past Minnesota in Minneapolis.

In that moment, if he was actually tying in all of last season in which the Suns finished 17-54 with him on the court (thus 18-54 overall including this season), then I could see why he would make such a statement.

Harden and Ben McLemore then combined for all points in an 11-0 race that led Houston to its first double-digit lead in 81-70.

Bradley Beal scored 22 points to lead six players in double figures for host Washington, which pulled away in the second half to defeat Detroit and snap a three-game losing streak.

Troy Brown and Thomas Bryant each added 14 points for the Wizards while Luke Kennard led Detroit with 24 and Pistons centre Andre Drummond grabbed 24 rebounds.
