Suns grab win over Kings, 115-107


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Sunday December 6, 2009 12:48AM

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Suns, handed the NBA's weirdest early season schedule, were hoping for a break Saturday night when they hosted the Kings.

They didn't get it.

The gritty Kings took the Suns nearly down to the wire; the game was tied, 93-93 midway through the final quarter. Then the Suns, behind a trio of late 3-pointers by Channing Frye and one by Steve Nash, pulled away for a thrilling 115-107 win. The Suns, who seemingly have played almost exclusively on the road since the season started six weeks ago, are "a bit tired from all the travel," coach Alvin Gentry said. The Suns (15-5) have played only seven home games (they've won them all), the fewest in the league.

Gentry said: "We've probably have played the toughest schedule. It's not been a good situation for us.

"It's not an excuse. It's reality."

Next up in the Suns' bizarre early schedule: the champion Lakers (away on Sunday and at home on Dec. 28); home games vs. the Magic (Friday), Cavs (Dec. 21) and Celtics (Dec. 30); and road games vs. the Mavericks (Tuesday) and Nuggets (Saturday).

This all means that by New Year's, the Suns will have finished playing the Celtics, Magic and Cavs and will have only one game left vs. the Lakers.

So even if the Suns cool off and are, say, 21-14 heading into 2010, this could set up a season that easily tops 50 wins.

"The schedule has to gets easier because those are the elite teams in the league. In the end it evens out," Gentry said.

The bottom line: "I don't think it's a bad thing, really, the way our schedule has fallen. It gives us an opportunity to steal a couple here and there now with hopes of fattening up later."

They got the win Saturday thanks to Steve Nash (32 points) and Amar'e Stoudemire (18 points, 21 rebounds).

And Frye scored 12 of his 15 points on 3-pointers.

Because the Kings trailed narrowly most of the fourth quarter, "We had to gamble in our defense," coach Paul Westphal said.

"We knew they'd get some 3s; they happened to make them."

The Kings approached the game with this idea: "We want to keep them off the free throw line and earn every basket," Westphal said.

They didn't succeed.

The Suns hit 19-of-22 in the first half alone, 28-for-34 for the game.

A problem with defending the Suns, Westphal said, is that, "You can take some things, but you can't take away everything.

"With the Suns, they don't care if you take away their first, second or third option. They have a 45 percent 3-point shooter waiting.

"It's like trying to grab water. Somebody is going to end up shooting that you don't want shooting."

For the Kings, Tyreke Evans showed why he's the early favorite for the Rookie of the Year award.

Evans sliced through and shot over the Suns. He had 21 points, seven assists and zero turnovers.

"There are a lot of things he'll continue to get better at," Westphal said. "But I can't tell you something he can't do.

"He's a terrific defensive player at three positions. He's an excellent rebounder. He's an unselfish player who can get to the basket against one person any time he wants. It doesn't matter who it is.

"Obviously, in this league, they'll set the defense and crowd it up," and Evans will have to make the correct decisions.

"But he's somebody that really has no limit in the ceiling of what he can do. He's such an all-round player."

What's more, "He's not out there trying to get famous. He's out there to be a good basketball player. That's what I really like about him."

Veteran Kenny Thomas had 18 rebounds for the Kings.

At 9-9, the Kings are one of the NBA's most pleasant surprises.

This is particularly true when you consider they've been without their best player, Kevin Martin, since early November.
