The Phoenix Suns wrapped up their four-game road trip with a 113-107 win over the Brooklyn Nets, extending the win streak to 16 games, one off the franchise record.

Devin Booker continued his red hot play after scoring 32 points in Madison Square Garden the day before, he dropped 30 points in 18 shots. Chris Paul added 22 points eight rebounds.

JaVale McGee was also fantastic off the bench for the Suns, adding 10 points and 10 rebounds in 16 minutes.

Phoenix jumped out to a 34-20 first-quarter lead and really never looked back. Although Brooklyn used a 15-0 second-quarter run to make the game close, the Suns led by 10 going into the break.

The Nets pulled to within six points early in the third quarter, but the Suns used a 21-5 run to regain the comfort of a double-digit lead.

Brooklyn made a late surge pulling to within six in the final quarter, but Phoenix never let the lead fall below six points in the fourth.

The Suns will look to tie the franchise record of 17 straight wins against the Golden State Warriors on Nov. 30. The Warriors are currently the only team in the NBA with a better record than the Suns at 17-2.
