Bogdanovic, Nets top Suns in battle of lowly teams

PHOENIX (AP) -

Bojan Bogdanovic scored a season-high 24 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 116-106 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night in a game between two of the NBA's worst teams.

Mirza Teletovic led the Suns with a season-high 30 points, but Phoenix lost its 13th consecutive game, tying a single-season franchise record. The Suns' eighth straight loss at home is a franchise worst.

Thaddeus Young added 18 points, eight rebounds and seven steals, and Donald Sloan had 13 points, nine rebounds and six assists for the Nets, who waived veteran Joe Johnson earlier Thursday after agreeing to a buyout.

Teletovic, a former Nets player, added 11 rebounds and Tyson Chandler had 12 points and 11 boards. The Suns cut the lead to 105-95 with 2:08 left but got no closer.
