Every morning after a Suns game, A Dry Heat brings you the Suns Stat of the Day – the number that sums up the previous day’s win or loss. Because numbers speak louder than words. Or a number speaks a 1000 words. Or something.
Suns Stat of the Day: 34
34. A career-high for points for Eric Bledsoe, who poured that many in last night in a HUGE victory at Houston. Bledsoe also added 8 boards, 4 assists, and 3 steals, while Markieff Morris, P.J. Tucker, and Marcus Morris also had strong games for Phoenix. With the win Phoenix moves to within a half game of New Orleans in the standings, and 2.5 behind the injury-plagued Oklahoma City Thunder (who may be without Kevin Durant for the rest of the year) for the last playoff spot. 12 games left to go – maybe the Suns are getting hot at the right time?
