In his debut performance as a member of the Phoenix Suns, former Card Damion Lee buried heavily contested fadeaway in the game’s final seconds to put the home team ahead by two. He then successfully defended a deep three at the buzzer to lift the Suns to a 107-105 opening night win over Dallas.
Lee, who spent four seasons with the reigning World Champion Golden State Warriors before signing a 1-year deal with Phoenix in the offseason, scored all 11 of his points in the game’s fourth quarter.
It’s safe to say that brother-in-law Steph Curry was excited to see his family member begin the process of making a name for himself with a different franchise.
To make the moment even sweeter, the shot by Lee came in the early moments of his wife’s — Sydel Curry Lee — birthday.
This is what happens to people who spend their summers co-hosting the Mike Rutherford Show. It’s not too late, Sattefield.
