DALLAS — This is why Phoenix made the blockbuster move to get Kevin Durant.

The Suns’ newest superstar hit a jumper with 12.4 seconds left and added two free throws to close out a 130-126 comeback win Sunday over Dallas before a sellout crowd of 20,311 American Airlines Center.

Durant scored 37 points in 40 minutes as the Suns (36-29) are 3-0 with him on the floor.

Luka Doncic had a chance to tie the game, but he missed a bunny at the rim with 6.2 seconds left. Durant grabbed the rebound, was fouled and hit the ensuing free throws.
