LOS ANGELES (AP) Nick Young scored 22 points, Jordan Clarkson added 18 and the Los Angeles Lakers moved above .500 for only the second time in nearly three years with a 119-108 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night.

Two days after their stunning upset of Golden State, the Lakers (4-3) held off the Suns down the stretch despite Devin Booker's career-high 39 points.

Julius Randle scored 18 for the Lakers, and Clarkson hit a 3-pointer with 1:27 left to seal Los Angeles' third victory in its last 14 meetings with the Suns, who have lost five of seven.
