The Phoenix Suns have been on an absolute tear as of late.

And in a 128-97 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night, the Suns set a franchise record for the most 3-pointers made in a single game.

Phoenix managed to convert 24 times from deep on 46 attempts (52.2%).

The 3-point barrage was put on by a combination of seven Suns players.

Those seven were Devin Booker (5), Cameron Payne (5), Mikal Bridges (4), Chris Paul (4), Dario Saric (3), Frank Kaminsky (2) and Jae Crowder (1).

Saturday’s contest also marked the second consecutive game in which Phoenix hit a minimum of 22 threes, the previous franchise record.

But the 3-point record wasn’t the only feat to be beaten on the night.

Suns point guard Chris Paul also notched six assists in the win to pass Oscar Robertson for the sixth-most in NBA history.
