Durant finally makes home debut 50 days after signing with Suns

Kevin Durant returned on Wednesday with 16 points after three weeks out with an ankle injury and played his first game in front of his new home crowd at Footprint Center in Phoenix in the Suns' 107-100 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Signed on February 9 on the last day of the NBA transfer window, Durant injured his left ankle on March 8 during the warm-up for what was supposed to be his home debut as a Suns player, and missed the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Durant had made his Suns debut and played three games away from home, starring in three wins out of three.

He debuted with 23 points against the Charlotte Hornets, 20 against the Chicago Bulls and 37 against the Dallas Mavericks, including the game-winning layup.

Against the Timberwolves, Durant scored 16 points to go along with eight rebounds and four assists.

Devin Booker shone with 29 points and Chris Paul contributed 19 for the Suns, who are fourth in the West (41-35).

The Wolves lost after four consecutive victories and are seventh (39-38).
