NBA roundup: Devin Booker inspires Suns to victory over Jazz

The Houston Rockets secured their maiden win of the current campaign courtesy of 33 points from James Harden.

Devin Booker netted 25 points as his Phoenix Suns defeated the Utah Jazz 106-95 and moved to 4-1 for the first time since 2009.

The 24-year-old also contributed seven assists, while team-mates Jae Crowder and Mikal Bridges had 16 points each in a dominant Phoenix display in Salt Lake City.

Wayward shooting by the Jazz in the second quarter – when they missed 13 attempts – allowed the Suns to pull ahead and they did not relinquish the lead.

The Cleveland Cavaliers suffered their second straight loss as they went down 119-99 to the Indiana Pacers, the Philadelphia 76ers won 116-92 over the Orlando Magic and the Toronto Raptors registered their first victory of the season with a 100-83 triumph against the New York Knicks.

The Houston Rockets also secured their maiden win of the current campaign, with James Harden pushing through a slow start to collect 33 points and push his side to a 122-119 win over the Sacramento Kings, while the New Orleans Pelicans dominated the Oklahoma City Thunder 113-80.

The Chicago Bulls lost four players – including Finnish gun Lauri Markkanen – to the league's coronavirus health and safety protocol yet still managed to defeat the winless Washington Wizards 133-130.
