WASHINGTON -- With the NBA regular season in the final stretch, Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic are pushing the Phoenix Suns in the right direction, with a five-game winning streak keeping them in the Western Conference playoff chase. John Walls Washington Wizards, meanwhile, are headed the opposite way, losing four of their last five games to let teams behind them in the East inch closer. After letting a 25-point lead dwindle to three Wednesday night, Bledsoe and Dragic got back to business and combined to finish with 48 points, 13 assists and 13 rebounds in Phoenixs 99-93 victory over Washington. "Im glad," Dragic said, "that we didnt panic." The surprising Suns moved into a tie with the Dallas Mavericks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Both clubs are 43-29 with 10 games remaining. "We dont care what other people think," Dragic said. "Before the season, they were saying were going to win 15 games." The Suns have won seven of their last eight, coinciding with Bledsoes return to the starting lineup after missing 33 games because of knee surgery. He had 23 points, seven assists and six rebounds, and Dragic wound up with 25 points, six assists and seven rebounds. "We were missing him those two months," Dragic said about his backcourt mate. "Now hes back and he looks good. Its much easier for me to play with him. He can handle the ball, I can handle the ball." Wizards centre Marcin Gortat, who used to play for the Suns, offered high praise for their pair of guards. "These guys are hungry. They bring it every night. They compete every night. They know what theyre playing for," Gortat said. "They have character, a lot of will to win the game." Gortat was not nearly as complimentary about his current teammates, who are sixth in the Eastern Conference but now are only 1 1/2 games ahead of No. 7 Charlotte, which beat Brooklyn 116-111 in overtime Wednesday. Gortat called Washingtons showing "embarrassing" and added: "Sometimes we show that mentally we are weak and just not competing. Thats it." Wall, who led Washington with 29 points and six assists, and coach Randy Wittman preferred to put the blame on poor defence that allowed Phoenix to shoot 50 per cent on 3-pointers for the game (14 of 2cool. Phoenix made 7 of 9 field-goal tries during a 17-4 run to open the second half. The Suns led by as much as 75-50 in the third quarter, but Washington kept chipping away at that, getting as close as 83-79 on Walls three-point play with a little more than 8 minutes remaining. But an 8-0 run by Phoenix that closed with Dragics 3-pointer followed by his reverse layup gave the Suns some breathing room. Washington again cut into the lead, though, and when Wall made consecutive driving layups, it was 93-90 with 1 1/2 minutes left. Sure enough, Dragic and Bledsoe again responded. Bledsoe hit a 3 off Dragics assist, and then Dragic fed Gerald Green, who was fouled and made two free throws. And that was pretty much that. Bledsoe called it "a sloppy win," but knows that his team is going to fare well when six players each make at least one 3-pointer, as happened Wednesday. "We live by the 3, die by the 3, most likely. Thats how it is," Bledsoe said. "When were making 3, its tough to beat us." Notes: Wizards G Bradley Beal missed the end of the first half and beginning of the second because he went to the locker room for treatment of a right hip pointer after a Suns player landed on him. Beal said he hopes to play Friday against visiting Indiana. ... The Suns had lost their previous three games against the Wizards, including at Phoenix in January. ... Wall reached 100 3-pointers for the season for the first time in his NBA career, and he joins Beal, Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster to give Washington a franchise-high four players with at least that many.

Shed missed the last three years either because of injury or Sjogrens Syndrome.West Brom moved into the top half of the table with their biggest Premier League win in more than two years as they defeated Burnley 4-0. After scoring his first goal for the club in their 2-1 victory at Leicester in their previous outing, Matt Phillips notched his second just four minutes into the contest at The Hawthorns.

His fellow Scotland internationals James Morrison and Darren Fletcher also struck before half-time to kill the match as a contest. The excellent Salomon Rondon then got a fourth as Albion matched their 4-0 scoreline from September 2014, also against Burnley, to move up into ninth place.Both sides went into the fixture off the back of valuable wins in their previous outings but it was West Brom who built on theirs. James Morrison of West Brom (left) celebrates with Salomon Rondon Phillips had been the matchwinner at the King Power Stadium and continued from where he left off - albeit his opener was a gift from the visitors.Chris Brunt released Morrison down the right and his cross was intercepted by Dean Marney, but he succeeded only in playing the loose ball to the former QPR forward.Phillips then took a touch to control before turning round and firing high into the net from close range to give the hosts an advantage they never looked like losing. Rondon scores West Broms fourth goal Burnley tried to respond but Scott Arfields volley from a tight angle was tame, Steven Defours shot was blocked and Jeff Hendrick lifted just wide of the post.West Brom made them pay for their misses in ruthless fashion as they poured forward and Rondon showed great upper body strength to hold off Michael Keane and set up their second.He played Morrison clear and the midfielder waited before picking his spot low past Heaton with a really smart, curled finish. Phillips puts West Brom 1-0 up against Burnley It suddenly seemed such a long way back for Burnley and even Heaton made an uncharacteristic mistake as he passed to Morrison only to feel relief as he screwed high and wide.A third was coming, however, and after Rondon drilled a fierce volley just over after being supplied by Allan Nyom, it was Fletcher who got it.Phillips was the creator on the left, bursting away from Matt Lowton before crossing to the back post and finding the former Manchester United player, who bundled in his first of the campaign. Phillips holds off Micchael Keane at The Hawthorns Burnleys reply was meek after the break and it was fitting the final goal of the night went to Rondon.ddddddddddddOne of the most improved forwards in the Premier League, his all-round play had been terrific and although his strike went in via a deflection, it was richly deserved.Phillips and Morrison combined on the left to feed Nyom and his cut-back found Rondon, who controlled then steered in off Ben Mee. Rondon was impressed with his side during their 4-0 win There were chances for a fifth as West Brom finished strongly on a night when a Tony Pulis team scored four times in a Premier League match for just the third time.Brunts long-range volley went past, Hal Robson-Kanu almost poked in a wicked cross from the Northern Irishman and Heaton tipped an attempt from Craig Gardner wide.The final whistle saw Burnley drop a place to 12th. They have just one goal and one point from their away games this season.
