Suns get stops late, halt Thunder's nine-game win streak

OKLAHOMA CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Phoenix Suns have the NBA's highest scoring offense, averaging more than 109 points a game. But it was their defense and then Jason Richardson that stepped up, stopping the streaking Oklahoma City Thunder 104-102 Tuesday night.

Richardson hit a 10-foot floater with :0.7 showing on the clock to seal an improbable win, the Suns ninth in their last 11 games.

"That was the play we drew up," said Suns forward Grant Hill, "If he had an open look he was supposed to take it. If not, then make something happen. He did, he went through his legs, crossed over and shot a floater. It was good."

Just five minutes earlier it looked for all the world like the Thunder's nine-game winning streak would get to 10. The home team had just ripped off an 18-3 run to come from five points down to 10 up, the sellout Ford Center crowd was roaring and the Suns were shaking their heads.

"Missing our star point guard, being down 10 late, I'm sure to the average viewer it looked like the game was over," said Hill.

The Suns though were just getting started with what would perhaps be their best defensive stand of the season.

Kevin Durant's 12-foot fade away jumper that put OKC up 98-88 with 5:04 to play would be the last field goal his team would hit. The Thunder went 0-for-10 down the stretch, including three blown layups, and were outscored 14-4 - the only points coming on free throws.

"We locked in defensively," said Hill, "it's just another way to win games and gain confidence."

"We missed three wide open shots, a layup and two 3s," lamented Thunder coach Scott Brooks. "If we hit those we might have put the game away but we go on and kept missing shots and then couldn't get stops either."

During their winning streak the Thunder seemed to keep finding ways to win, and it looked like they'd found another Tuesday night before things fell apart.

Oklahoma City had trailed by 15 points, 73-58 in the third quarter when the Suns missed two shots and then committed two straight turnovers to key a 9-0 Oklahoma City run to get the crowd back into it. And when the Thunder kept running on out to that 10 point lead at 98-88 it was a party atmosphere.

But the Suns weren't ready to give up.

"I just said we had five minutes to go and we had all the time in the world to come back and have an opportunity to win," said Suns coach Alvin Gentry. "It was going to have to be with our defense not with our offense. We had to have stops to get back in the game. I thought we tightened up our defense and did a good job."

The Suns were playing without All-Star point guard Steve Nash, who stayed home in Phoenix nursing an ailing back. No matter though, as his backup, Goran Dragic, had a Nash-like 16 points and 10 assists.

"It's hard to be like Steve," Dragic told reporters, "I was talking before the game to one of our assistant coaches and I said I just had to play my game. When I'm playing my game I'm more comfortable."

Amar'e Stoudemire, who's been averaging 25 points in the last nine games, had 30 to go along with 9 rebounds. Hill had 21 and Richardson dropped in 20, including the game winner, and grabbed 13 rebounds.

Almost overlooked was Kevin Durant's 36 points, his 29th straight game with at least 25 points. K.D. also pulled down eight rebounds and dished out three assists and made two steals.

Point guard Russell Westbrook added 21 points to go along with 10 assists and three steals. Forward Jeff Green finished with 16 for Oklahoma City.

The first half was basically played even up with Phoenix taking a two-point lead at the quarter break and Oklahoma City pulling ahead by one going into halftime.

The Thunder jumped out to an early 10-4 lead but the Suns stormed back, going on a 10-0 run to jump in front 14-10. It was a back and forth game from there featuring 14 lead changes and 10 ties in that first half.

The biggest advantage for either team was Phoenix' dominance on the boards. The Suns outrebounded OKC 26-16 in the opening half.

Oklahoma City hadn't lost a game in almost a month so the feeling in the home locker room was a little different than usual.

"This loss really hurts," said a subdued Durant. "It's tough, but we've just gotta be ready for the next game."

And that next game comes quickly for both teams. Oklahoma City will be in San Antonio Wednesday night and the Suns will be back home that same night hosting Philadelphia.
