Suns the latest victims as Lakers win ninth straight

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- Outside his team's locker room following a 108-88 shellacking by the Lakers, Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry said it as a matter of fact.

"We play the other teams," he said. "and I think they're by far the best team."

En route to their ninth straight victory, the Lakers beat the Suns convincingly Sunday at Staples Center. They held the Suns to under 100 points, only the third team to do so this season.

In the victory, Kobe Bryant had a game-high 26 points and Ron Artest had 15 points and five steals, tying a season high. Six Lakers finished in double figures.

After the game, a few of the Suns players and Gentry could only muster answers of the Lakers length as to the reason why they lost.

"I think it can be frustrating, not necessarily demoralizing," Lakers guard Derek Fisher said. "When you feel like you try to do everything you can do to try to compete and win and your opponent just seems to be one step ahead of you or find ways to do things easy, that can be frustrating.

"When we're healthy, I definitely think we're a step ahead (of last season). It's tough for other teams to keep up with us for a 48-minute game."

Much of the pregame and even postgame was focused on the Lakers (16-3) escaping against the Heat on Friday, a 108-107 victory. It was a wakeup call that carried over.

"We kind of pushed ourselves into the win tonight," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said.

Phoenix (15-6) was led by Amar'e Stoudemire's team-high 18 points and Steve Nash's 12 points and 10 assists, his 11th double-double of the season.

The Suns started the season 8-1 and have gone 7-5 since then. They have lost three of their last four by an average of 21 points.

Despite holding the next best Western Conference record to the Lakers coming into the game, Phoenix still has a ways to go.

"We've done well (so far this season)," Nash said. "But we have a lot of work to do before we're in their class."

The Lakers led most of the game, but put it out of reach late in the third quarter.

Just when Phoenix trimmed Los Angeles' lead to nine, 72-63, off an 18-foot jumper by Stoudemire, silly fouls and turnovers put the Suns in a hole and helped the Lakers close out the final three minutes of the third quarter on a 15-3 run.

"They just blew us away," said Richardson, who had 10 points.

One play showed it all. After snagging a rebound in the backcourt, Stoudemire was looking to pass it off, but a pesky Artest continued to hound him before deflecting Stoudemire's pass. The loose ball led to Bryant being fouled by Stoudemire. Bryant converted both attempts starting the Lakers' surge.

"We wanted to come out and push them a little bit in the third quarter and we did," Jackson said. "It was ignited by Artest's steal in the backcourt."

The Suns didn't do themselves any favors settling for jumpshots all night. They were 10-for-11 from the free throw line to the Lakers 22-for-25.

After giving up 78 points in the paint in their first meeting, Gentry sent double teams at Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum early in the game. The Suns did hold the Lakers to 40 points in the paint, but the result was an efficient game from deep, as LA went 10-for-21 from beyond the arc.

For an encore performance following his winning buzzer-beater against Miami, Bryant scored the game's first basket on an 18-foot jumper and was fouled by Richardson. Bryant converted the 3-point play. To end the first quarter he flicked a shot over his shoulder with 2.6 seconds left.

In the second quarter, the Lakers went on a 12-2 run midway through the period with Jordan Farmar providing the spark off the bench, scoring nine points including two 3-pointers giving the Lakers an early 46-37 lead. Threes by Fisher and Artest helped Los Angeles build a 54-44 lead at half.

NOTES: Phoenix guard Leandro Barbosa is still out with a sprained left ankle, an injury he suffered on Nov. 15 against Toronto. "We think realistically, we'll get him right before or right after Christmas," said Gentry pregame.
