Redd Scores 25, Surging Suns Beat Rockets
PHOENIX (AP) Michael Redd is enjoying his time with the Phoenix Suns.
Redd scored a season-high 25 points off the bench and the Suns beat the Houston Rockets 99-86 on Sunday night for their fourth straight win.
“I don’t feel any pressure to do more than I’m capable of,” said Redd, who signed as a free agent just after the start of the season. “I’m just having fun.”
Redd had two major knee injuries in as many years and played only 10 games for the Milwaukee Bucks a season ago. His role – and his minutes – have been in flux for most of this season.
Against the Rockets, Redd hit his first five shots and finished 10 of 13 from the floor including three 3-pointers.
“Every night there is someone else playing big minutes and having a big game,” said Marcin Gortat, who had 15 points and 10 rebounds.
