Archie Goodwin seals Suns 30-point comeback with poster dunk

Phoenix Suns shooting guard Archie Goodwin put the exclamation mark with an emphatic dunk over Shelvin Mack in an impressive 111-110 come-from-behind win against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.

Goodwin scored the last six points for the Suns, determined to find his way to the cup with a dunk, a layup, and this poster-like jam to ultimately win the game for his team. Check it out.

The play originated after Goodwin had the chance to knot the game at 110 from the line in an and-one situation. Tyler Ulis — easily the smallest player on the court at 5-foot-10 inches — came away with the offensive rebound and gave it to Goodwin in an isolation play to seal the win.

After a hot start by the Jazz, the Suns trailed 46-16 with 8:44 left in the second quarter, eventually heading into halftime with an 18-point deficit.

Trailing by 10 at the start of the fourth quarter, the visitors clawed their way back to the last minute, culminating in a crushing dunk by Goodwin to give his team its first win of the preseason.

Archie Goodwin finished 4-of-6 from the floor for 13 points and a steal, while phenom shooting guard Devin Booker had a game-high 20 points with four rebounds, three assists, and three steals.

While it’s only a preseason game, a 30-point comeback teaches plenty of lessons for both the winning and losing teams. The Suns refused to put their head down after shooting 25% from the floor early in the game and fought to come out with the W at the end of the night.
