Devin Booker led Phoenix with 33 points on 13-of-26 shooting while rookie Kyle Kuzma led the Lakers with a season-high 30 points. Lonzo Ball scored six points with six rebounds, six assists and five steals while playing 38 minutes, but the Lakers needed more from their bench who were outscored by the Suns' bench by 53-28.

The Suns (6-11) will play host to the Bulls (3-10) in the first of two meetings between the teams in 10 days.

Kuzma also notched a double-double with 10 rebounds. "We know what kind of player he is, he knows what kind of player he is and he's going to be just fine". Here are three players to watch on Friday night. It was the third time a minor donnybrook broke out in a game between the two teams this season. Most recently, it was a 100-93 win on the road.
