The Portland Trail Blazers dropped their third game in a row, all by 30 points or more, falling 120-90 to the Suns on Wednesday night in Phoenix.
Brandon Williams scored a team-high 14 points for the Blazers (25-37), with Drew Eubanks and Trendon Watford adding 13 points apiece. Anfernee Simons had 11 points and six assists in 28 minutes.
The Blazers shot just 38.5% from the field, compared with the Suns’ 50%. Cameron Johnson led the way with 20 points for Phoenix (50-12), which owns the best record in the NBA.
The Suns rolled despite being without Chris Paul and Devin Booker, who form one of the best backcourts in basketball.
Blazers coach Chauncey Billups said before the game that the absence of Paul and Booker wouldn’t change his approach or strategies because he believes that the Suns will still play at a high level.
Since losing Jusuf Nurkic to plantar fasciitis, the Blazers have lost big to Golden State (132-95), Denver (124-92) and now Phoenix.
