Suns bottle up Howard, finish season sweep of Magic


By Jack Magruder, for NBA.com

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- Exactly a year ago Friday, Phoenix finalized the acquisition of Jason Richardson and Jared Dudley from Charlotte. It is not going out on a limb to say the Suns would make that deal again. And again. And ...

Professional etiquette demands that the Suns not crow, of course.

Richardson's aggregate numbers, still good, are down a bit from his days as being the No. 1 option in Golden State and Charlotte, but he is more accurate from the field than ever. Both deviations from the norm were easy to anticipate, given his sidekick role in the rhythm offense orchestrated by Steve Nash.

Dudley's continued maturation makes the trade look better by the hour.

Neither Richardson nor Dudley was the star of the Suns' anniversary celebration, a 106-103 victory over Orlando at U.S. Airways Arena on Friday that completed a season sweep of the Eastern Conference representative in the NBA Finals last season.

As is typical, Nash (20 points, 18 assists) and Amar'e Stoudemire (28 points, 10 rebounds) were terrific. There have been four 18-plus assist games in the NBA this season, and Nash has three.

Richardson and Dudley simply did what they do.

With 3:31 remaining, Dudley spotted up on the right baseline and drained a 3-pointer after taking a pass from Nash for a 98-85 Suns' lead.

On the next possession, Richardson spotted up on the left baseline and drained a three after taking a pass from Nash. That made it 101-99 with 2:56 left.

On the Suns' final possession, with the Suns up by one, Dudley got the shot after Nash penetrated and dished, taking another 3-pointer from the right baseline. The ball rimmed out, but Stoudemire got the rebound and slammed it home to finish the scoring.

Richardson had 16 points.

Dudley tied a career-high with 19 points, making 4 of 8 3-pointers. He played a season-high 32 minutes, when coach Alvin Gentry played Nash and four forwards most of the fourth quarter. With reserve guard Leandro Barbosa (ankle) out until Christmas, Dudley played the entire fourth quarter, with guard Goran Dragic seeing little work.

"Jared is a great player. He's smart," said Nash. "He's skilled. He's turned into a really good three-point shooter. He's a skilled defender. We love playing with him. He has become a huge part of our team and a huge part of our depth."

The final play, while not designed for Dudley, said a lot about the trust he has earned from his new teammates.

The Suns wanted to run a pick-and-roll play with Nash and Stoudemire to get Orlando's Dwight Howard away from the basket. When Howard came out of the timeout guarding Grant Hill, however, the Suns changed on the fly and let Nash freelance.

Nash drove the lane and drew Howard, who had switched to Dudley, leaving Dudley with a clean look.

"Steve Nash is the best guard I've ever played with," said Dudley, who said he did not know his role in Charlotte but has felt at home here after working hard over the summer -- he put up 1,000 shots a day during summer workouts in Las Vegas -- to increase his range to become a spot-up factor.

"I just let the stars be stars," Dudley said.

Richardson, shooting 48.6 percent from the field, is averaging about 13 shots a game, the lowest total of his career. It is OK with him.

"It's everything I imagined the Suns to be. We're having fun. We're winning," Richardson said.

"You know what? I'm nine years into my career, so being the man at the end of games is not that important. At this point of my career, I just want to win. I was the man, getting my numbers. Now all I want is to win a championship.

"I'm a role player. Some nights I'm the second option, or the third option. It doesn't really matter to me. There is nowhere else I'd rather be."

The Suns (16-7) needed the victory, which made them 8-0 at home. They have lost four of their last six as the schedule stiffened, and obviously have more to prove. They have not beaten the Lakers in two tries, both in L.A. But they have beaten Boston and Orlando on their trips there this season, and have endured 15 road games in their first 23. The Lakers, on the other hand, have played four road games and 17 at home.

Gentry strategized a way to take Howard out of Orlando's offense. With aggressive double-teams, the Suns limited Howard to one field goal attempt. He attempted 17 free throws but made only eight, at one point missing five in a row. He finished with 10 points and 18 rebounds.

The scheme left Magic three-point shooters free, and they tried 38, making 13. Mickael Pietrus made four threes and had a season-high 23 points.

"It was a big factor. We did a good job on him," said Nash of Phoenix's defense on Howard. "We fouled him and put him on the line. They had a lot of threes, but if you look at the game, when Howard gets only one shot up, you feel like you have a good chance."
