Suns-Nets Preview

(AP) -- While Brandon Knight seeks to build on his best scoring performance since coming to Phoenix, the Suns try to boost their playoff hopes Friday night by dealing a blow to the Brooklyn Nets' chances.

The Suns got the high-scoring Knight from Milwaukee in a three-team deal Feb. 19, and he had a combined 39 points in his first two starts with his new team before briefly losing his shooting touch. The fourth-year guard went 9 of 34 from the field in his next three games, including 0 for 6 in a 101-74 loss to San Antonio on Saturday.

Knight broke free of that slump by hitting 7 of 15 from the floor and scoring 28 points in a 105-100 win over Orlando on Wednesday. He also had a key steal in the final seconds, converted four late free throws and had seven assists while helping the Suns (32-30) avoid a third consecutive defeat.
