The Phoenix Suns will kick off a five-game homestand on Saturday night when they meet the Washington Wizards, who are halfway through their six-game road swing. The Suns followed an overtime win over NBA-leading Utah on Wednesday with a 113-103 loss Thursday in Los Angeles against the Clippers, snapping a seven-game winning streak. Phoenix went just 6-of-24 shooting from 3-point range in Los Angeles, while the Clippers connected on 18 of their 37 attempts from long range.
Bradley Beal shook off a sluggish performance - and a sore back - and scored six points in the final 6.1 seconds.
The Golden State Warriors will attempt to put the sting of a game-losing, four-point play behind them when they resurface on their home court 24 hours later to play the Houston Rockets on Saturday night. Golden State blew a late three-point lead and fell victim to Bradley Beal's four-point heroics with about six seconds left in a 110-107 home loss to the Washington Wizards on Friday night. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Houston outscored the Clippers by 10 points in the first and third quarters but couldn't overcome a 10-point second period in a 126-109 defeat.
