Blazers hot shooting leads to rare road win in Phoenix


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Thursday February 11, 2010 12:47AM

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- You don't have to have the basketball acumen of Phil Jackson to know these things:

- If you shut down the Suns' high-powered 3-point game, you've got a good shot at winning.

- If you commit only 11 turnovers in a relatively fast-paced game, you've got a great shot.

- If your team shoots 71 percent over an NBA half, and 58 percent for an entire game, you'll surely win.

And so the visiting Trail Blazers, losers of three of their previous four games, had their way with the Suns in a wire-to-wire 108-101 win Wednesday night.

"A good win for us after two bad games," Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan said.

"It was nice to see the ball go in. Our transition defense was good, mainly because we were knocking down our shots."

The game was a pratfall for the Suns, who had won five straight by improving their defense markedly.

For much of the season, they had been in the lower half of the league in field goal-percentage defense, one of the NBA's most important stats. But lately, they had improved to a surprising No. 11 entering the game.

But the Blazers got any shot they wanted any time they wanted.

"Our defense was terrible," said Suns coach Alvin Gentry, who was clearly angry about the outcome.

"We got our ass kicked, plain and simple," Gentry said. "They outplayed us in every phase.

"They outhustled us. They made good plays, good passes, everything we didn't do."

In falling behind 8-0 at the game's start, the Suns committed two turnovers and missed a layup in their first three possessions.

"We weren't ready to play," Gentry said. "We didn't play with passion and energy. When we do that, we are a very average team."

By contrast, the Blazers were extremely sharp in shooting 71 percent en route to a 60-44 halftime lead.

The Blazers limited the Suns No. 1 ranked 3-point game to a modest 36 percent (8-for-22).

At the other end, forward LaMarcus Aldridge overwhelmed the Suns' Amar'e Stoudemire, outscoring him 22-11 in the first three quarters, when the game was decided.

Aldridge ended up shooting 11-for-17 for 22 points plus six boards.

Stoudemire went wild in garbage time and finished with 24 points and nine rebounds.

The Suns challenged only briefly.

They went on a 9-0 run to start the fourth quarter to shorten an 83-67 Blazers' lead to 83-76.

Then Nicolas Batum and Steve Blake nailed 3-pointers to restore order.

The Blazers won their first game in Phoenix since Steve Nash rejoined the Suns before the 2004-05 season; they had been 0-9.

They enter the break at 31-24, good enough for the No. 8 spot in the ultracompetitive West.

The Suns fell to 31-22, which puts them No. 6, percentage points behind the No. 5 Thunder.

The Nos. 5 through 8 teams are separated by one game in the standings; the Spurs are No. 7 at 29-21.

Close behind are the Rockets (27-24), Hornets (28-25) and Grizzlies (26-25).

"In one week, you can be out of the playoffs," Gentry said.

The Blazers changed their lineup, moving Blake into the starting off guard spot in place of the injured Brandon Roy, with Martell Webster shifting from the "two" to the "three" spot. Batum came off the bench.

It surely worked for a team that had only scored 77 in a loss Tuesday night.

The Blazers hope Roy will return soon after the break and will join this lineup, McMillan said.

Blake, who would return to a reserve role, put up season highs with 20 points and 12 assists.

Off the bench, Dante Cunningham hit 6-for-7 for 13 points in 21 minutes.

Roy, who has a sore hamstring, has missed 14 of the Blazers' last 15 games; they are 6-8.

The Suns enter the All-Star break for the second straight year with speculation surrounding the future of Stoudemire a preeminent topic (though last year, the impending coaching change from Terry Porter to Gentry got about equal billing).

Stoudemire once again probably won't be traded at the deadline.

After slumping a couple of weeks ago -- he averaged just 14.3 points in a three-game stretch -- he admitted that all the trade talk was getting to him.

The key move: Gentry sat him out in the fourth quarter of the Suns' big come-from-behind home win over the Mavericks on Jan. 28th.

For a player who suggests he should be a maximum-contract player, this was embarrassing.

In the Suns' four-game road trip (all wins) he averaged 27.8 points and 12.3 rebounds.

Gentry said: "Obviously, all the things that were said affected him. On the road, it wasn't so in-your-face and he was able to put it behind him."

Though Stoudemire has been prone to slumps and streaks, "He's been a hell of a player."

Gentry pointed out he's been in Arizona for six years, and that Stoudemire has been the leading scorer every season except one he missed with a knee injury.

Though Stoudemire probably will never be known as a defensive anchor, "He's tried to get better....He's better than he was a year or two ago. He's working at it."

Stoudemire recently said he probably will take the option to play out the final year of his contract (at more than $17 million) next season.

This may make the Suns' decision on whether to trade him less urgent.

The Suns Grant Hill (nine points) played despite an ankle injury he suffered when he crashed into a camera operator in Sacramento on Monday.

The situation prompted a colorful critique from Gentry, who said the close-quarters situation in NBA arenas is "absolutely ridiculous, to be honest...You pay these guys a lot of money...when somebody really gets hurt, then something finally will be done about it."

"I don't think guys should be missing games because they run into a cameraman.

"I should probably shut my mouth....but as quick, fast and powerful as they are, you have to be careful having something that close that can really hurt a player."
