With 3:42 remaining in the first quarter, Eric Paschall received the ball at the top of the three-point line. He faked the handoff to Jordan Clarkson as he turned to drive to the basket. Paschall made a jump stop in the paint and finished with a two-handed dunk. That play cut the Suns’ lead to 27-14.
