(AP) Eric Bledsoe sank a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds to play to give the Phoenix Suns an 87-84 victory over the Utah Jazz on Friday night.
After missing 10 of his first 11 shots, Bledsoe scored the final 14 points for Phoenix, which improved to 2-0 under new coach and ex-Jazz player and assistant Jeff Hornacek.
Gordon Hayward's 3-pointer tied it for Utah at 84 with 22.9 seconds to play.
Bledsoe, 4 of 15 from the field, scored 18 for the Suns. Miles Plumlee added 13 points and 13 rebounds.
Enes Kanter scored 20 and Hayward had 18 points for Utah.
The Suns' Goran Dragic played three minutes in the third quarter then left because of a right face contusion he sustained in a nasty collision with teammate Markieff Morris late in the first half.
Bledsoe missed one of two free throws with 30.4 seconds to play, making it 84-81 and giving Utah a chance to tie.
The Jazz did just that when Hayward broke free for the 3-pointer.
Bledsoe calmly dribbled the clock down then pulled up for his game-winning 3 from the top of the key.
The Jazz were called for an out-of-bounds violation on their desperation attempt at the finish.
Bledsoe began his run with a three-point play, then sank a 3-pointer and made four free throws, accounting for all the offense in a 10-1 run that put Phoenix ahead 83-80 with 1:34 to play.
Hayward made one of two free throws with 35.5 seconds to go to cut the lead to 83-81, then Bledsoe missed his first free throw but made the second to make it 84-81.
Just before Bledsoe's run, Utah used a 10-1 fourth-quarter run to go up 76-73 on a 19-footer by John Lucas III with 5:25 to play.
Neither team led by more than eight points as both squads struggled from the field. Utah shot 36.5 percent, the Suns 37.3 percent.
Utah took its biggest lead at 53-45 on Kanter's rebound basket with 8:58 left in the third quarter. Then Dionte Christmas, in his first NBA appearance, scored seven consecutive points on a long 2-pointer, a free throw and a 3-pointer, igniting a 17-3 run that gave Phoenix a 62-56 lead on Morris' 19-footer with 2:49 left in the third.
Utah outscored the Suns 6-1 the rest of the period and trailed 63-62 entering the fourth.
Phoenix scored the first five points of the fourth quarter on Christmas' layup and Bledsoe's three-point play to lead 68-62 with 10:28 to play.
Utah came back to tie it at 72 on Alec Burks' fast-break layup with 6:20 left.
The Suns' two point-guard lineup of Bledsoe and Dragic, which accounted for 48 points in Phoenix's season-opening win over Portland on Wednesday, was a combined 6 for 26 from the field.
NOTES: As players, Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin and the Suns Hornacek were teammates for two seasons in Phoenix. ... Hornacek stuck with Channing Frye as starting power forward even though Morris, expected to fill that role, was back from a one-game suspension. ... Plumlee is the eighth player to get a double-double in his first two games for the Suns. ... Hornacek used 12 of his 13 players.
