Devin Booker drained a three-pointer with 1.5 seconds left. The Suns went on to win 109-108 win when Luka missed his own three at the buzzer. #AllStar

“It was a tough game all the way through,” Booker said. “We came out with a big one.”

Chris Paul carried the Suns for the third straight game, putting up a season high 34 points along and 9 assists and 9 rebounds and a pair of timely steals. #AllStar

The Suns closed out their second-straight game after getting down 11+ late in the third quarter to a talented Mavericks team on their home court.

“Resiliency,” Williams said of one word to describe the game. “To be able to win a game like that when you know you haven’t played your best basketball.”

The Suns now have a 3-game winning streak after fans had started to climb off the band wagon. Maybe you should climb quietly back on quickly so we forget you left ;) #justkiddingrealones

The Dallas Mavericks now have a 6-game losing streak, and over the last three years the Suns are 8-1 in games against the Mavericks.

Suns leaders

Chris Paul: 34 points (14-20 shooting, including 4-7 on threes), 9 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 steals

Devin Booker: 24 points in his return, including the 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds left.

Parting words from Chris Paul after tonight’s win.

“I was telling the guys in the locker room that I don’t know if I can ever retire because the emotional roller coaster that you go on during a game – like for real, for real – there’s no high like that.”
