March 21st, 2015 by John Dorn Leave a reply »

Points flew onto the scoreboard at rapid speeds, but the Phoenix Suns kept their foot on the gas a bit more firmly all night long. In a high-scoring Western Conference affair on the road, Phoenix got the best of the Houston Rockets, 117-102.

The Rockets jumped out to a red-hot start, shooting around 63 percent through the midpoint of the second quarter. After a surge by Eric Bledsoe, who had 23 points before the break, Phoenix managed to dig out of a 12-point hole to claim a one-point lead at the half. WIth Bledsoe’s work and superior transition excitement offensively, Phoenix opened up a 13-point lead in time for the final period—one they would never relinquish. Houston scored just two points in the final 5:05, just after cutting the lead to five.

Bledsoe finished with a career-high 34 points on 11-of-18 shooting to go along with eight rebounds, four assists and three steals. Marcus and Markieff Morris added 17 points each. Alex Len struggled from the field all night, finishing with five points on 2-of-10 shooting, but luckily for Phoenix, not poorly enough to affect the final outcome.
