The Suns’ complicated round of 5 away games ends with a success – during which they challenged the top-4 of the Eastern Conference, finishing 3-2 after the victory at Madison Square Garden. Thanks to Chris Paul, who signed the last 7 points for Phoenix (some with crazy plays from the dribble), in a match of 20 and 6 assists in which the guests managed to recover an initial disadvantage of 15 points, consolidating the 2nd place to the West and keeping the Clippers a game away.
New York, on the other hand, interrupts the streak of consecutive successes at nine, the best moment of form and results of the last seven years. The Knicks pay a normal performance by Julius Randle (18 points with 6/17 shooting, 6 rebounds and 4 assists), while better than him in terms of achievement is Derrick Rose off the bench: 22 points with 10/18 shooting and 6 assists. New York remains in 4th place in the East, paired with Atlanta and with a two-game margin on the play-in zone.
