The Phoenix Suns stumbled a bit when Eric Bledsoe first went down with a knee injury but appear to be finding a winning formula again. The Suns will look for their fourth win in five games when they host the Washington Wizards on Friday. Phoenix posted one of its more impressive victories of the season with a 124-100 triumph over the NBA-best Indiana Pacers on Wednesday as Gerald Green stepped up and scored 23 in Bledsoe's spot.The Wizards missed another chance to pull above .500 with a 113-111 overtime loss to the Boston Celtics on Wednesday but have won four of their last five road games as they open a four-game Western Conference swing. John Wall picked up his second career triple-double with 28 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists but Washington could not overcome breakdowns on the defensive end against Boston. The Suns will try to exploit some of those holes in the perimeter defense with Green and Goran Dragic.TV: 9 p.m. ET, CSN Mid-Atlantic (Washington), FSN Arizona (Phoenix)ABOUT THE WIZARDS (20-21): Washington had trouble with a Celtics backcourt that was missing Rajon Rondo and allowed Boston to go 15-for-34 from 3-point range.
