PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - The Phoenix Suns have taken the first game in their playoff series against the New Orleans Pelicans Sunday night in downtown Phoenix. The Suns beat the Pelicans 110 to 99. The Suns finished the season with the best record in all of basketball, now fixing their sights on the franchise’s first NBA title. The Suns came close last year but lost in the finals against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Suns, who are first in the Western Conference at 64 wins and only 18 losses, were favored in the game against the Pelicans who ended their regular season with 36 wins and 46 losses.
