PHOENIX (AP) Jon Leuer and T.J. Warren scored 17 points each and the Phoenix Suns beat the Sacramento Kings 102-98 in a preseason game Wednesday night.

Brandon Knight scored 16 points and Eric Bledsoe added 13 for Phoenix, which was making its preseason debut.

Sacramento's Rudy Gay led all scorers with 30 points and DeMarcus Cousins added 15, all in the first half as the Kings took a 53-52 lead.

Leuer's' two free throws gave the Suns a 100-96 lead with 2:06 to go.

Ben McLemore scored on an alley-oop pass to pull the Kings within two and Sacramento had a chance to win in the closing seconds but Darren Collison's 3-point attempt from the right elbow fell well short.
