The Northern Arizona Suns enjoyed a road victory against the Agua Caliente Clippers in Ontario, California on Sunday night.

Their 113-109 win was made possible by early defense and some clutch free throws. Archie Goodwin led the way with 27 points on 11-of-13 (.846) shooting in the fourth and final game of the inaugural season series between the Suns and the Clippers.

NAZ shot a team record 58.1 percent from the field (43-of-74) as they evened the series 2-2, improving to 17-19 ahead of the All-Star break. Xavier Silas certainly helped, with two three-pointers less than two minutes into the game. He sank all four free throws in the last 10 seconds to seal the deal, finishing with 26 points on 8-of-11 shooting.

The Suns got off to an early start, making 13-of-16 (.813) shots from the field in the first quarter, jumping to a quick 33-21 lead. While the Clippers prevailed in the third, in the end the Suns could not be beat, thanks to efforts from JJ O’Brien (31 points), Ike Iroegbu (18 points), Alec Peters (16 points), Lavoy Allen (14 points) and Shaquille Harrison (10 points).

The Suns resume play Wednesday, Feb. 21, when they head to Southaven, Mississippi, to take on the Memphis Hustle at 6 p.m. MT. For updates, please check out their official website HERE.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
