There's a good chance you were watching a certain baseball game when the Phoenix Suns won their first game of the season -- and in dramatic fashion, no less.

No worries; we've got you covered.

At almost the same time the Cubs got the final out to clinch their first World Series title since 1908, the Suns had a heart-pounding finish of their own in downtown Phoenix, as guard Eric Bledsoe hit this game-winner to lift the Suns past the visiting Portland Trail Blazers, 118-115 in overtime.

It was the Suns' first victory of the year after opening the season with four losses, including an overtime defeat at Oklahoma City last week. It was also Earl Watson's first win as the Suns' full-time head coach. Watson took over as the team's interim coach after Jeff Hornacek was fired midway through last season, but the Suns removed the interim tag shortly after the 2015-16 season ended.
