Recap

With Amar'e on the bench, Suns rally past Mavs


By Jack Magruder, for NBA.com

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Suns found a new way to win Thursday -- without All-Star forward Amar'e Stoudemire down the stretch.

The Suns put Stoudemire, their biggest scorer but most problematic defender, on the bench for the entire fourth quarter as they overcame an eight-point deficit for a much-needed 112-106 victory over Dallas.

After threatening an opponents' season high by making 57.4 percent in the first three quarters, Dallas made only 6-for-21 in the fourth against a group that for the majority of the period included Grant Hill, Steve Nash and reserves Lou Amundson, Jared Dudley and Channing Frye.

"I thought we played the way we did the first month of the season. We had grittiness and just refused to lose," Suns coach Alvin Gentry said.

"Our bench played great. The thing we talked to those guys about is, we don't know on any particular night who it is going to be, so you have to be ready to play. I thought this was probably the best total team effort we've had all year from the standpoint of guys stepping in the game and doing something positive for us and just playing good, hard basketball."

It has been a tough couple of months for the Suns, now 27-21 after starting the season 14-3, and the week had been typical. The Suns had lost eight of their last 11, failing to hold a 17-point lead late in the third quarter at Utah on Monday and losing at home in overtime to Charlotte on Tuesday.

This time it was the opponent that wilted in the face of pressure down the stretch, as the Suns used a 12-2 run capped by a Steve Nash 3-pointer for a 105-100 lead with 3:17 remaining.

The Mavericks made two baskets and four free throws in the final 7:20, with Hill doing most of the work (with occasional help from Dudley) on Mavericks All-Star Dirk Nowitzki, who had 19 points but had only on field-goal attempt, a missed 16-footer, in the fourth.

"You have to come up with stops, and that takes the pressure off us to go down and score offensively," Gentry said.

Jason Terry led the Mavericks with 21 points, but he struggled in the fourth quarter, going 1-for-4.

"That's a win we've talked about. We've been saying we need to get it done on the defensive end. We need to make stops at the end of the game," said Amundson, who occasionally covered Jason Kidd when the Mavericks went to a three-guard look.

"We had that high intensity we need. The way we had been playing is frustrating. We needed a win, and to get one the way we played tonight is very satisfying."

Amundson had seven of his 12 points in the fourth, and he also had two blocks. Dudley had a standout game -- eight points, six rebounds, five assists and two steals in 24 minutes. He had five boards and two assists in the fourth.

"We went with a lineup where we could switch a lot," Dudley said. "We made people shoot the shots we wanted them to shoot.

"That's all defense really is -- making people do things out of their comfort zone."

The Suns' bench contributed 43 points. Goran Dragic had 13 and Frye added seven to go with six rebounds.

"Their bench was the difference," Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. "Grant Hill worked extremely hard the whole game and made it difficult for Dirk to catch the ball."

"Their second group was a lot better than the guys who were on the floor," Kidd said.

Stoudemire led the Suns with 22, while Nash had 19 and Jason Richardson -- also in on defense in the final two minutes -- had 17.

Stoudemire did not appear upset that he was not used in the fourth after playing the entire third, although he did say it was the first time in his life he did not play at all in a fourth quarter.

"We showed what we are capable of doing defensively, especially down the stretch. If we continue to play that like, get scrappy, we'll be all right," Stoudemire said.

"We all contributed. We all came out with great intensity, great focus. It's all good. The guys did a great job. They got the win. You have to live with that."

Of Stoudemire's late absence, Gentry said: "I wouldn't read anything into that at all. He understood that we were going pretty good with Lou and the way the lineups were. We were switching a lot of things. It was just the way it worked out.

"We just have to do whatever we think we have to do to help us win a game."
