Any mad genius who bet money on a Suns-76ers Finals before the season is yet another game closer to becoming a billionaire. 

While the Sixers are the surprise team in the East thus far, the Suns have been just as surprising out West. They stomped the Trail Blazers by 13 points on Wednesday night, and they shocked the Jazz tonight thanks to this cutthroat tie-breaking three from Eric Bledsoe

Bledsoe was the very definition of "clutch" in this game, with 17 of his 18 points coming in the fourth quarter. The last three of those 17 points came with 0.7 seconds left on the clock. Utah couldn't get off a shot in reply, and the Suns climbed to 2-0.

This is only Bledsoe's second game in Phoenix—he came over this summer in the deal that sent Jared Dudley to the LA Clippers. The kid certainly didn't take long to win the hearts of his new hometown fans.
