PHOENIX — Gerald Green had a season-best 24 points and a career-high five steals starting in place of the injured Eric Bledsoe and the Phoenix Suns beat the sloppy Milwaukee Bucks 116-100 Saturday night.
Channing Frye added 22 points, going 6 of 9 on 3-pointers, Goran Dragic scored 13 of his 15 in the second half and Markieff Morris added 14 for the Suns, who have won 11 of 14 but were coming off a home loss to Memphis on Thursday.
Brandon Knight had 25 points for the Bucks and O.J. Mayo scored 18 of his 20 in the second half.
Milwaukee committed a season-worst 26 turnovers, resulting in 38 Suns points.
Bledsoe missed his second game in a row with a sprained right knee and is expected to be out for another week.
