The Suns ran down the court time and time again and with 18 fast break points were able to build a cushion before Shaun Livingston provided a boost off the bench with 12 points.
Livingston handled most of the ball-handling after Deron Williams went to the locker room after spraining his left ankle. X-rays were negative, but he will not return. Eric Bledsoe ignited the Suns, pushing the ball up the court off long-ranged misses by Brooklyn.
At half, Bledsoe and Goran Dragic lead the Suns with 13 points apiece. Joe Johnson tried to provide some offense after Williams went down but has struggled, going 2-for-11 from the field.
