5 tips for when the Suns Grizzlies stop Chris Paul comeback

After getting 30 fewer points than a week ago in Memphis, Phoenix, shorthand or not, needed to respond, win or lose, in the last regular season meeting Sunday against the healthy Grizzlies.

The Suns are still without Devin Booker (groin), Cameron Payne (foot) and Landry Shamet (foot), and DeAndre Ayton didn’t have a second straight game with a non-COVID illness, but Chris Paul is back after missing seven straight games with a sore right thigh.

With their veteran captain back, Phoenix built a huge lead before escaping a 112-110 win before pulling off a thrilling rally, but stressed 17,071 sellouts in the footprint position in the second of two consecutive touchdowns.

Up by as much as 29, Phoenix (24-24) saw its lead cut to two with 28.6 seconds remaining.
