Recap

Suns snap out of four-game skid, coast past Nets


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- Their fall has been almost as surprising as their rise.

At least the Suns, losers of 10 of their previous 15 games, had enough to edge the lowly Nets 118-94 Wednesday night in Phoenix.

The Suns had to grind to break the game open in the third quarter after trailing early in the second quarter and leading only 56-49 at halftime.

The Suns broke a four-game losing streak; they'd gone 0-4 on their recent road trip.

"We needed a win in the worst way," said Alvin Gentry, the Suns' relieved coach.

Phoenix, which started the season with a 14-3 record -- good enough to challenge the Lakers for the West's best record -- now are a modest 25-18.

That's good enough for No. 6 in the competitive West, where the Nos. 5 through 11 teams are just three games apart.

Amar'e Stoudemire led the Suns with 27 points on 10-for-15 shooting. Jason Richardson, coming off the bench for the second straight game, added 26 on 10-of-14 shooting.

Steve Nash had 12 points and 15 assists and edged closer to Rod Strickland for eighth on the all-time assists list. He needs just three more to pass Strickland's 7,987.

The Nets dropped their ninth straight, lowering their record to 3-38 at their season's midpoint.

They were led by Brook Lopez, who had 26 points on 12-of-22 shooting plus 13 boards.

The Suns are experimenting with two changes in their starting lineup. Robin Lopez has been a hit in both his starts in place of Channing Frye up front while Leandro Barbosa continues to try to find his game.

Frye hasn't been the same since teams decided to cover him on the 3-point line. And that left the Suns with a pair of shaky interior defenders in Stoudemire and Frye.

Lopez not only gives the Suns a rebounder and shot blocker, he's averaged 19.5 points on 16-of-20 shooting plus seven rebounds. in his two starts. Over the past four games, he's shot 27-for-38 (71 percent) and averaged 16.0 points and 5.5 rebounds.

"I think he'll continue to get better the more he plays," Gentry said.

Lopez said, "I've been feeling pretty comfortable. I attribute that to my teammates. They make it easy."

Against the Nets, he lined up against his twin, Brook, and had a career-high 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting plus seven rebounds.

Even though their mom watched the game wearing a Suns' jersey and a Nets' hat, Robin said there was no frivolity between them.

"We don't talk on the court. It's all business," Robin Lopez said.

Gentry said, "He did a great job on his brother. He [Brook] took 22 shots to get 26 points."

The move means Stoudemire, the leading vote-getter at center for the West's All Star team, is now designated as a forward. (He mostly had been playing center on offense and the "four" spot on defense).

In the backcourt, the Suns are trying to get something out of Barbosa, who is averaging just 10.9 points on 43 percent shooting (33 percent on 3-pointers) and had shot just 20-for-55 in his previous five games.

So he's starting in place of Richardson.

In his two starts, he's averaged 11.5 points on 10-for-25 shooting.

Before Wednesday's game, Gentry had acknowledged "a little bit" of concern over Barbosa's game.

Against the Nets, he played more effectively, hitting 4-for-9 and scoring nine with zero turnovers in 20 minutes.

"I think he had some good moments," Gentry said. "We'll continue this way for a few more games and see how it goes."

As for the Nets, coach Kiki Vandeweghe can only hope for better days.

The way the team's roster is dominated by young players, "You're going to have some dark nights," Vandeweghe said. "But the way to get out it is you have to keep reinforcing good habits and then eliminating the bad ones."

Taking the long view, he said, "If you look at where we are and where we were a couple years ago, a middle of the road team going nowhere, you realize we're in the midst of a rebuild."

In trying this, "You're trying to accumulate as many assets as you can and win along the way if you possibly can.

"I do see progress. It's tough now. But I think the future is pretty bright for us."
