• Phoenix squandered a first-half, double-digit lead in Saturday night’s 112-103 loss at Sacramento at Golden 1 Center.

    Devin Booker posted game-highs in points (32) and assists (10), and rookie 7-footer Deandre Ayton posted a double-double of 19 points and 11 boards to tie Alvan Adams’ rookie record of 37, but the Kings got the better of the Suns (17-57) from long range.

    Sacramento (36-36) went 17-of-38 from 3 while the Suns shot 9-of-34. Kings took an 89-83 lead as Bogdan Bogdanovic, Nemanja Bjelica and Harrison Barnes hit consecutive 3s in giving them their largest lead at the time.

    The Suns led by as many as 14 in the first half as Booker had 22 points at the break. They had limited the Kings to only nine fast-break points. Sacramento leads the league in that category at 21.3 points a game. The Kings outscored Phoenix, 28-21, in the second quarter to pull within six points at the half, 53-47.

    Jimmer Fredette made his return to the NBA since last playing in the 2015-16 season, but didn’t score on 0-for-1 shooting in four minutes, 21 seconds of action against his first former NBA team. Receiving a roaring ovation as he entered the game to start the second quarter, Fredette was called for an offensive foul on his touch of the game.

    Phoenix was without Tyler Johnson, who missed his fifth straight game with a sore right knee, and Josh Jackson, who sprained his left ankle in Thursday’s loss to Detroit. Kelly Oubre Jr. has been ruled out for the season as he had a procedure done on the thumb of his left shooting hand that requires a recovery time of four to six weeks.

    TJ Warren remains out with what the Suns are calling right ankle soreness. He’s calling it a bruise, but in either case, Warren has missed 25 straight games with the injury.

    The Suns resume action Monday at Utah.
