Backups step up to power Suns' big win over L.A.

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Death March portion of their schedule nearly complete, the Suns appear to have survived.

Phoenix posted one of its season's biggest wins Monday night with a thorough 118-103 whipping of the defending champion Lakers. The Suns are now 20-12 after a schedule that included more road games than any other team in the season's first several weeks and a portion that included games against all the top title contenders.

"Probably the toughest schedule there is to play," Suns coach Alvin Gentry said.

The Suns had one advantage Monday: forward Ron Artest, injured in a fall at his home on Christmas Day, missed his second straight game.

Coach Phil Jackson said he hopes Artest will be back Tuesday vs. the Warriors though the player experienced some dizziness on Monday.

"I don't think Ron would have had anything to do with this ball game," Jackson said. "But (his presence) would have helped our bench."

That bench, sometimes playing with unfamiliar groupings, took a 52-31 whipping from the Suns' reserves. The Suns got a huge lift from Robin Lopez, who had eight points, five rebounds and a spectacular block on Kobe Bryant on the fast break to close the third quarter.

Lopez hasn't gotten much playing time, even though the 7-footer's strengths -- defense and rebounding -- are two of the Suns' weakest points.

In this game, he made two appearances in the first half alone.

"I think that might have been a first," Lopez said. "I'm glad I was able to perform."

"Against bigger teams, we'll use him and he'll be able to helps us," Gentry said. "It all depends on matchups."

Also, Goran Dragic, the Suns' backup point guard, ran circles around Jordan Farmar (drawing the ire of Jackson). He ended with 14 points in 23 minutes. Amare Stoudemire led the Suns with 26 points.

"We played with toughness and grit," said Steve Nash (16 points, 13 assists), who acknowledged the Suns have had "some slippage" particularly on defense lately. "We had to get back to that training camp-underdog mentality" when many NBA observers picked the Suns as a lottery team, Nash said.

Bryant scored 34 (on 14-for-26 shooting) and Gentry had nothing but praise for Jason Richardson's defense on the Lakers' star. "He played him about as well as you can," Gentry said.

Bryant managed to switch hands and maneuver for points.

"I was trying to crowd him, trying to make him take tough shots," Richardson said. "He's averaging 30. He's going to get 30. You just try to limit him from getting more."

With Artest out, the Lakers went with a big front line of Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom. That gave the Suns an edge in quickness, and they were able to beat the Lakers' defensive rotations at times for shots.

Though the game wasn't particularly fast-paced, the Suns still managed 118 points on 49 percent shooting.

Bryant said, "There was a little confusion on the rotations. And if you have a second of doubt, not being sure about where you're going, they're going to make you pay. That's what they did."

Still, the Lakers' frontline hurt the Suns early, with Bynum too much for the Suns' slender Channing Frye to handle.

The Lakers (24-6) put up an early 16-10 lead, then Lopez replaced Frye, and the Suns started to assert themselves.

Lopez got a tip-in, a layup and hit a 12-footer at the first-quarter buzzer as the Suns took a 25-23 lead. Leandro Barbosa nailed a 3-pointer to begin the second quarter, the start of a 7-0 run that made it 32-23.

The Suns extended the lead to 39-27 before Bryant, quiet in the first quarter, started hitting shots from all around the floor. He scored 13 points in the period as the Lakers narrowed the lead to 56-50 at halftime.

The Suns might have run up a bigger lead but Amar'e Stoudemire and Frye missed dunks.

The Suns extended the lead a pair of Frye 3-pointers, and a fast-break 3-pointer by Jason Richardson off a turnover by Odom to make it 82-66 late in the third quarter.

The Suns' bench, led by Jared Dudley (19 points) and Dragic, put the Lakers to bed early in the fourth quarter as the lead eventually reached 19 points.

Out came Bryant, as Jackson decided to live to fight another day.

The Suns host the Celtics on Wednesday, ending the toughest part of the schedule. Phoenix has no more games left against the Celtics, Magic and Cavaliers and have only one more game left against the Lakers (March 12 at home).

The Suns have wins over the Celtics, Lakers and Magic, but have a pair of losses to the Lakers and Cavs.

"Those are arguably the best teams in the league," Gentry said.
