Hot shooting in third keys Suns win over Grizzlies

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- At the outset of Wednesday's game with the Phoenix Suns, Memphis coach Lionel Hollins gave his team a piece of advice: "We have to control the tempo."

For nine minutes, they did, giving the Suns' inside players a butt-kicking to boot.

But NBA games last 48 minutes, and the Suns had too much firepower in rolling to a 126-111 win.

At 12-3, the Suns now boast the NBA's best record. They're also 6-0 at home -- winning by an average 15 points -- and have won 15 straight in Phoenix dating to last season.

They don't really play at a race-horse pace like they did early in the Steve Nash era.

They run when they can, but they also rely on a precise halfcourt game. Both were on display in a stunning third quarter when "It seemed like they made every open shot they had," Hollins said.

No kidding. The Suns shot -- and this is no misprint -- 85 percent. Yes, they missed only three of 20 shots.

"Offensively, we were really sharp," coach Alvin Gentry said. His team shot 62 percent for the game.

Amare Stoudemire had 28 points (but only four rebounds). Jason Richardson shot 8-for-13 for 20 points.

Steve Nash had 11 points and 16 assists while playing a modest 30 minutes.

The Suns overcame the Grizzlies' 49-29 rebounding edge, including a whopping 22-7 edge in offensive boards.

"They are so athletic, and that bothered us," Gentry said.

The Grizzlies are the NBA's best rebounding team; they grab nearly 54% percent of those available.

On defense, the Suns did a nice job on Rudy Gay, with Grant Hill playing the lead role. Gay shot 6-of-15 for 16 points.

Early on, though, Stoudemire and Channing Frye were dominated by the Grizzlies' inside duo of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph.

Stoudemire normally plays center on offense and power forward on defense, so he took Randolph while Frye went against Gasol, with the roles reversed at the other end.

This worked well for the Grizzlies early as they rolled to a 25-18 lead.

But as the teams went to their reserves, the Suns' strong bench lifted them to a 27-27 tie by the end of the first quarter, with Randolph and Gasol combined for 15 points and 10 boards.

Phoenix started to pull away just before halftime when Richardson nailed a 3-pointer, then stole the ball and fed Nash for a layup.

Nash then passed in the halfcourt for dunks by Hill, Richardson and Louis Amundson as they took a 60-49 halftime lead.

Then came the third-quarter onslaught.

"If you miss shots and you don't get back on defense, it's going to be tough for you to beat them," Gay said. "That's what happened."

For the Grizzlies, Randolph finished the game with 24 points and 13 rebounds.

"He's not a great jumper but he's so smart in his positioning," Gentry said of Randolph.

The Grizzlies got some nice play late from Hasheem Thabeet, the No. 2 draft pick who hasn't done much so far this season.

Thabeet had nine points and five rebounds in 13 minutes.

The Suns can mull over their whipping on the boards as they start a four-game trip Friday at Minnesota.

Gentry said the game will mark the season debut of 7-footer Robin Lopez, who should help their inside rotation.

He figures to cut into the minutes of Amundson, among others.

Gentry doesn't see a problem though. "They know we're going to work him in. With his size and...the need to protect the basket, we could use him.

"He's going to help us. But it's going to take time."

Lopez has been out with a foot injury. The Suns' No. 1 draft pick in 2008 didn't play much last season until late, when he came on strong in the last few games.
