Aussie Aron Baynes continues his impressive form for the Phoenix Suns, putting in another big performance in their 114-105 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

Baynes poured in 20 points on 4-of-7 shooting from beyond the arc, while Devin Booker scored a team-high 21 points.

After trailing by two points at half-time, the Suns exploded in the third quarter, outscoring the Grizzlies 37-22 in the period. A 19-3 run fueled by Booker and Oubre, who combined for 14 of those points helped extend the lead to 13 heading into the fourth.

The Grizzlies turned the ball over 11 times in the quarter, giving up plenty of easy buckets for the Suns to take control of the game.

Grayson Allen and Jaren Jackson Jr. left the game with injuries in the third quarter and did not return. Allen rolled his left ankle, while Jackson Jr. suffered a knee injury.

Kelly Oubre Jr. added 15 points and Frank Kaminsky 14 for the Suns, who now move to 4-2 for the first time since 2013-14.

Ricky Rubio recorded 11 points, six assists, five rebounds and three steals for the Suns.

Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant led the way with 24 points and seven assists, while Dillon Brooks and Brandon Clarke chipped in 16 points apiece, with Clarke recording a double-double with 11 rebounds.
