Ayton scores 26, Suns beat Kings for 10th straight home win


The Suns haven’t lost in their home arena for nearly a month, but struggled to put away the Kings for much of the night, taking a 95-94 lead into the fourth quarter.


The game remained close throughout the fourth but the Suns slowly pushed ahead and Booker threw a long alley-oop pass to Ayton for a dunk with 4:38 left that made it 110-104.


It was another good game for Ayton, who has found his niche playing alongside the All-Star backcourt of Chris Paul and Booker.


Jevon Carter made his first three shots off the bench, including two 3-pointers, to give the Suns a lift early in the second quarter.


But the Kings cut into the deficit quickly and Wright made a 3 with 1:15 left that tied the game at 65.


Kings: F Marvin Bagley III (hand fracture) and F Richaun Holmes (right hamstring strain) didn’t play.
