    Suns win 5th straight behind Johnson, beat Wolves 116-107

    PHOENIX (AP) – Cam Johnson scored 29 points, making seven three-pointers, and the Phoenix Suns beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-107 on Tuesday night for their fifth straight victory.

    Johnson finished 7 of 11 behind the arc and 10 for 17 overall in another strong outing for the former reserve who is now in the starting lineup.

    “I think he is getting more comfortable with the role, but defensively he was really good,” Suns coach Monty Williams said. The victory was the fifth straight for the Suns (6-1), who won without centre Deandre Ayton, sidelined with a sprained right ankle.

    Johnson helped pick up his team with Devin Booker having a tough night shooting.

    Booker still had 18 points but was 2 of 7 from three-point range and 6 of 18 overall. He did have seven rebounds and five assists.
