Youth prevails in Thunder victory against Suns


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Thursday December 24, 2009 12:57AM

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- The schedule favored the experienced, rested Suns.

But young legs sometimes can make up for a tough schedule. Take the Thunder's surprising 117-113 win Wednesday night at the Suns.

Even though the Thunder lost a heart-breaker Tuesday night at the Lakers -- while the

Suns had the night off -- they had more energy than the Suns, particularly early. "That's not good," said Alvin Gentry, the Suns' disappointed coach.

"That's on me. I've got to make sure we play with energy."

The Thunder rolled up 50 points with nearly 8 minutes left in the first half and led by as many as 15 (54-39) with 6:42 left in the half.

The Suns fought back and took a 109-106 lead with 3:23 left in the game, but couldn't but the young Thunder away. "We didn't let them bust the game open," said Kevin Durant, the rising superstar who poured in 38 points for the Thunder (14-14).

The Thunder didn't win their 14th game last season until Feb. 28.

For the Suns (18-11), Amar'e Stoudemire had a great game with 35 points and 14 rebounds.

But with the Thunder leading 111-110 with 1:30 left, he missed a 10-footer under heavy pressure. Then got beat to the defensive boards by the Thunder's Jeff Green, who tipped in a missed shot to give them a 113-110 lead.

Steve Nash (24 points, 12 assists) missed one of two free throws, then rookie James Harden grabbed a loose-ball rebound off a missed shot by Durant.

Harden got the ball back to Durant, who nailed a 21-footer for a decisive 115-111 lead with 14 seconds left.

"James won the game for us," Durant said. "He got me a good look."

The Suns found Channing Frye (24 points) open for a 3-pointer, but he missed.

And the Thunder had a huge road win. The Thunder broke a nine-game losing streak vs. the Suns.

They did so by coming up with 13 second-chance points in the fourth quarter alone.

"They made all the plays down the stretch," Gentry said.

"We gave up second shots, and you can't do that with a guy like Durant on the floor."

The game marked Harden's first NBA appearance in Arizona.

Harden starred at nearby Arizona State for the past two years, leading the Sun Devils to the NCAA tournament last season. Harden had 14 points.

"He's a smart player," coach Scott Brooks said.

In the Thunder's narrow loss at the Lakers, Harden "made a couple plays that 5-or-6-year veterans don't make. He understands the game very well for a kid who's only 20 years old."

Harden even filled in at point guard vs. the Lakers, with Brooks saying the rookie "did a great job" of not letting defensive pressure bother him.

Brooks called Harden, who is averaging 10.0 points, "an unselfish player," though he can score if needed.

"Some guys are unselfish because...they can't score. They can't make plays. James can make plays for himself.

"He's one of our better shooters, one of our better scorers, one of our better playmakers. He has great ability."

A knock against Harden was that he wasn't as athletic enough by NBA standards.

"But he is as athletic as anybody in the league at that (off guard) spot. But he doesn't look it. He plays with a calming sense."

Suns coach Alvin Gentry called Harden "one of the most efficient players I've ever seen. Nothing fancy. He just makes shots, takes it to the basket and makes plays.

"I'd rather have an efficient player than a flashy guy."

The Thunder's newest player, backup point guard Eric Maynor, arrived just in time to play.

Maynor, acquired from Utah in a trade, had two points and five assists in 12 minutes. The Suns now are 4-8 in December. They've played all these games without Leandro Barbosa, the high-scoring backup guard, who's been out with an ankle injury. He is expected back Friday night, at home vs. the Clippers.

The Suns, after playing on the road much of the early season, now are in a home-dominated portion of the schedule.

But Gentry didn't care much to discuss the subject.

Schedules should even out, he said. Besides, "It just gets frustrating to talk about why you're playing 17 of your first 24 games on the road."
