Rose puts on show in desert to lift Bulls over Suns

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- As could have been predicted Friday, Steve Nash passed Rod Strickland for eighth place on the NBA career assists list. He needed four assists. He got seven.

In what is becoming commonplace, Chicago guard Derrick Rose brought his 'A' game to the matchup.

Rose had 32 points, four assists and three steals as the Bulls won for the fifth time in their last seven games 115-104.

Rose is 3-0 and has scored 76 against the Suns since entering the league last year.

The Suns tried Nash and others on Rose, and also played some 2-3 zone, but nothing worked. Rose made 15 of 21 shots and punctuated the performance with a monster slam over Goran Dragic with 6:12 remaining.

Phoenix got within four on an Amar'e Stoudemire slam with 2:55 remaining, but the Bulls scored the next eight to put it away.

"We had a tough time with Rose. He took the ball pretty much where he wanted to take it. We didn't have an answer for him defensively, and they shot it as well as I've seen them shoot it this season," Suns coach Alvin Gentry said.

"They were giving me mid-range [jumpers], so I was taking it. I've been working on that all summer," said Rose, the Rookie of the Year last season.

"He's already a phenomenal player, and I see him continuing to improve," Nash said of Rose. "On a night like tonight, he can play at a level that few players can play at."

The Bulls (19-22) made 50.6 percent of their shots compared to the Suns at 38.5, their second-lowest percentage of the season.

"I think Chicago did the unexpected and hit shots," said Stoudemire, who led the Suns with 23 points a day after being named a Western Conference starter in the All-Star Game.

It was the kind of game the Suns (25-19) would like to forget, the kind that has marked their play over the last month.

The Suns are 11-16 after their 14-3 start and have lost five of their last six, beating only hapless New Jersey. They are one of eight Western Conference teams with either 17, 18 or 19 losses, and it appears only five of those teams will make the playoffs if the Los Angeles Lakers, Denver and Dallas hold their division leads.

"We have to find a way to play a little better," Nash said.

Nash had three assists in the first quarter and moved past Strickland with No. 7,988 on a pick-and-roll feed to Stoudemire for an easy slam dunk with a 1:08 left in the first half. But the Suns trailed by nine after that hoop, and led only twice thereafter.

Nash had eight points, seven assists, five rebounds and five turnovers in 34 minutes, making 4-for-12 field goals while being covered primarily by Kirk Hinrich, a defender the Bulls trust so much that they also have used him against Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

The long, athletic Bulls also trapped Nash extensively when the Suns ran their pick-and-roll, forcing other Suns to make plays. Grant Hill had 17 points, Channing Frye added 16 and Jason Richardson had 12, but it was not enough.

"Hinrich is a great on-ball defender," Gentry said. "He does a great job of keeping guys in front of him, and they are good on the help side. They were very aggressive with Steve. We had to make some shots and we weren't able to do that."

While paying credit to Hinrich and the Chicago defense, Nash admitted after the game that he did not have his usual spring.

"I had nothing tonight physically. During the shootaround I felt great, then when I shot before the game I felt like I had arthritis in every bone in my body. It just happens sometimes like that," Nash said.

"I just had no pop in my legs, and everything was sore. It's frustrating, but I feel lucky it has happened very rarely this year. It happens fairly regularly, whether it is every five games or 10 games or 20 games when you get into hour 30s. I've had very few games like that, but tonight I just couldn't physically do it. It's frustrating, because I felt like I let my guys down."

Before the game, Gentry was not gentle in his criticism of an ESPN blog report that said "there has been some tension in the locker room regarding Stoudemire," part of a story that listed Stoudemire as a potential trade candidate before the Feb. 17 deadline.

"Biggest crock of [expletive] I've ever heard. Because there is nothing going on in our locker room. Not one thing. That pisses me off, to be honest with you," Gentry said.

Said Stoudemire: "He's [the reporter] a liar."

"For somebody to make a statement that there is tension in our locker room ... that is coming from a guy who is living in Hawaii. I can understand if he had been at our practices or in our locker room, but he hasn't. So that is very disappointing to say that when he has not a clue about what is going on in our locker room.

"As far as [Amare] is concerned, he wants to have a great year. He wants us to win games. He wants us to be able to get into the playoffs. That's what every guy in that locker room talks about, and I don't think they've ever lost focus on that."
