Eric Bledsoe Scores 30 As Suns Hold Off Lakers, 119-115

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eric Bledsoe had 30 points and nine assists, Leandro Barbosa added 21 points and the Phoenix Suns snapped their three-game losing streak with a 119-115 victory over the slumping Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

Devin Booker had 15 points before fouling out for the Suns, who hit a season-high 13 3-pointers and withstood a late rally by the short-handed Lakers.

Lou Williams hit six 3-pointers and scored 35 points in another monster game for the Lakers, who have lost five straight after a promising start to their first post season since Kobe Bryant retired.

Los Angeles has faltered during a busy portion of its December schedule while playing without four injured regulars: D’Angelo Russell, Nick Young, Tarik Black and Jose Calderon.
