Grant’s 16,000 Point Career Milestone Leads Suns to Victory

January 14, 2011

By Josh Greene,

Grant returned to the court after a very short recovery from a knee sprain during a Suns vs. Trail Blazers game to accomplish not only a personal best but help lead the Suns to victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

In the third quarter of the game, Grant became the 15th player in NBA history to score over 16,000 career points. The achievement also lead the Suns to a 115-111 win over Portland.

Despite the games rocky start for Grant, who dodged injury again in the first half of the game after knocking knees with Portland SF Nicolas Batum, Grant returned to the court to achieve this great feat.

With the NBA All-Star Game quickly approaching, this major career accomplishment may put Grant back in the All-Star game as well. Check out thorough coverage of Grant’s great achievement and a recap of the Phoenix vs. Portland game over in the NBA Newsroom by clicking here
