Phoenix Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek says that he was pleased by the all-round performance from his side during their win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Jeff Hornacek has said that all of his players performed well during the Phoenix Suns' 104-91 win over the Portland Trail Blazers last night.

Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic split the duties at point guard, adding 48 points, while Miles Plumlee had 18 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks on his debut with the team.

The head coach told reporters: "You don't look at the stats. You go 'we won the game'. Those guys played well, but everybody that stepped out there [did too].

"LaMarcus Aldridge is a great player, but Marcus [Morris] kept battling, got a steal the one time. That's what we need, guys who are just going to battle every play.

"I got a little worried there when it got down to five, especially with a young team, to see how they would react, but they made a couple nice stops. That's a key for us. When we get stops, we're able to fast break."

The Suns face the Utah Jazz tomorrow.
