“I don’t know what Bledsoe shot from the field, but I’ll take that shot every day of the week,” Blazers McCollum said after the OT loss to the Suns.
Bledsoe was just 6 of 19 from the field and 0 of 3 from 3 before the game-winner, but he’s a clutch player and also had the final bucket for the Suns in regulation.
“I wanted the ball,” Bledsoe said of the game-winner over Damian Lillard. “I was just going to get whatever they gave me. The shot was there, I took the shot and just took it with confidence, and you live with the results.”
This is the Suns first victory of the season (1-4) and a nice redemption game for them after losing an overtime game to the Thunder last week.
