Bledsoe’s career day leads Suns over Raptors 115-103, TORONTO — Following a career-high 40-point game, Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe begrudgingly conceded he might be playing the best basketball of his career.
“I guess, I guess. I’m just trying to win, man,” he said after leading the Suns to a 115-103 win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night.
Bledsoe added 13 assists and six rebounds and Phoenix gave Toronto its third straight loss.
The Suns trailed from the 2:13 mark of the second quarter until tying it at 95 with 7:29 to play. After DeMarre Carroll and Bledsoe exchanged baskets, Phoenix went on an 18-6 run to take the game away from the Raptors.
It was the second road win in two nights for the Suns, who had to come from behind late to beat New York on Saturday.
