It took a wild buzzer-beating shot but the Phoenix Suns picked up their first victory of the season on Wednesday.
With time running out in overtime, Suns guard Eric Bledsoe nailed a ridiculous, step-back fadeway 3-pointer which swished through the net, much to the chagrin of the Portland Trail Blazers. It was quite an impressive shot as Bledsoe was able to elude Damian Lillard for a split second before firing away:
That was Bledsoe’s lone 3-point make of the game but he made it count. And thanks to his late-game heroics, Bledsoe should now always have his name spelled correctly on the back of his jersey in Phoenix.
