PHOENIX (AP) — Chris Paul scored 28 points, including 14 in another spectacular fourth quarter, to lead the Phoenix Suns over the Dallas Mavericks 129-109 for a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinals.

Paul poured in 14 points during the first six minutes of the fourth, almost single-handedly turning a tight game into a comfortable Suns victory. Devin Booker led the Suns with 30 points on 11-of-19 shooting, including 5 of 8 from 3-point range.

The Suns shot 64.5% overall and made 52% of their 3-pointers. Game 3 is on Friday in Dallas.
