The Spurs led by 12 points entering the final period and were able to keep the Suns at arm’s length until the final buzzer.

The Suns were able to get to within five points with 2:22 left in regulation, but the Spurs connected on four straight free throws to get breathing room.

The Suns were led by Xaiver Silas and his 26 points. Elijah Milsap had a double-double though he fouled out of the game. He had 15 points and 10 rebounds in the loss.

Shaquille Harrison had 21 for Northern Arizona. Northern Arizona shot 41 percent on the night and made 12 3-pointers.
