Devin Booker scored 28 points, Chris Paul had 27 and the visiting Phoenix Suns beat the Denver Nuggets 116-102 Friday night to take a 3-0 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series.

Deandre Ayton had 10 points and 15 rebounds, Jae Crowder scored 14 and Mikal Bridges added 11 for Phoenix, which will aim for a sweep of the best-of-seven series on Sunday in Denver. Paul contributed eight assists.

The Suns have won six contest playoff games and are one win from advancing to the Western Conference finals for the first time since 2009-10 — the last season in which they made the playoffs before this year.
