Three different Suns scored 16 points and eight reached double figures as Phoenix rolled over Charlotte 115-83. Phoenix’s All-Star center Amare Stoudemire sat out his second consecutive game with a sore knee, but it didn’t matter because Charlotte’s offense didn’t show up. The Bobcats shot an anemic 36% from the field, according to the Arizona Republic.
The game went from bad to worse for Charlotte when starting point guard Raymond Felton needed to be helped off the court after he suffered a knee injury. The Bobcats were led by rookie forward Jared Dudley who contributed 16 points and 11 rebounds. Phoenix’s offense looked crisper than it had all season, only committing nine turnovers.
