The Suns extended their win streak to 13 games in Monday’s opener of a four-game road trip, courtesy of a 115-111 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.
DeAndre Ayton collected 21 points and 14 rebounds for his sixth double-double in his past eight games.
“I’m glad we have a swag and mentality where we’re winning games just working on us. Not just trying to go out there and beat teams, we’re working on something way bigger than what the league is thinking. Especially for the long, long run.
“We know it’s a longer season, but it’s just us doing the right things and playing our type of game and us playing together.
“That’s our leader out there,” Jarrett Allen said of Garland, who averages a team-best 18.2 points, 6.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game.
