Devin Booker scored 34 points, sinking five free throws in the final 12.3 seconds, and the Phoenix Suns scored 11 consecutive points late in the fourth quarter to steal a 104-103 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday in Phoenix.
Booker made three free throws for a 102-101 lead when he was fouled on a 3-point attempt from the right wing with 12.3 seconds remaining. Kent Bazemore, who claimed he got all ball, was charged with the foul.
Suns forward Marquese Chriss blocked a dunk attempt by Taurean Prince after a lob pass, and Booker made two more free throws with 6.3 seconds remaining for a three-point lead.
Dennis Schroder's driving layup with nine-tenths of a second remaining ended the Suns' 11-0 run, but Phoenix successfully inbounded the ball to end the game.
"All we wanted was a chance, and I made some tough shots," Booker said. "That last block (by Chriss), I don't know if anyone else on our team could have made that play. I think we're turning that corner right now."
TJ Warren scored 31 points on 15-of-21 shooting, and Chriss had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Suns (15-24). Phoenix entered the game with a league-worst 6-14 home record.
Center Ersan Ilyasova had 21 points and Schroder and Bazemore added 20 apiece for the Hawks, who have the worst overall record (10-27) and the worst road record (3-16) in the league. Ilysoasova had nine rebounds, just missing his first double-double of the season.
Reserve Mario Belinelli had 16 points for the Hawks, who had 27 points and 13 rebounds from their bench.
Ilyasova's layup from a Schroder feed gave the Hawks a 97-85 lead with 4:51 remaining, and his free throw made it a 100-91 lead with 1:57 left before the Suns started their comeback.
Booker made two free throws, and Chriss's 3-pointer trimmed Atlanta's advantage to 101-96 with 1:29 remaining.
After Atlanta's Miles Plumlee missed two free throws, Booker hit a 3-pointer from the left wing with 37 seconds left to make it 101-99. Plumleee is a 45.5 percent foul shooter this season.
The Hawks led by as many as 14 points before ultimately falling short.
