Stay hot Phoenix! The Suns snapped the Portland Trailblazers four game winning streak Saturday night with a 109-93 victory.
Gerald Green scored 32 points while Eric Bledsoe scored 30 of his own to lead the Suns to victory.
Green even outscored Portland in the 4th quarter 14-13.
The bench once again had a great night, finishing with a combined 50 points and 27 rebounds with Green leading the charge and Markieff Morris chipping in with a double-double.
Robin Lopez was the Trailblazers’ player of the game as he finished with a team-high 18 points and 13 rebounds against his former club.

Phoenix (45-31) remained the 9-see in the West as Memphis and Dallas were both victorious last night.
