Nash returns to action as Suns hold off Sixers


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Thursday February 25, 2010 12:48AM

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- They never have been associated with superb defense. And maybe they won't ever be in our lifetimes.

Yet the Suns' defense is more than passable these days.

They limited the visiting 76ers to less than 44 percent shooting in rolling up a relatively easy 106-95 win on Wednesday night.

The Suns, who ranked well into the bottom half of field-goal percentage defense -- one of the NBA's most important stats -- for much of the season, now rank a respectable 12th at .456.

(That's slightly better than the league average of .459).

"The guys talk about defense a lot, about how we have to get more consistent," Suns coach Alvin Gentry said.

They have their eye on that crucial stat.

"Good teams are judged by defensive field-goal percentage. And we're moving up."

This means the Suns are getting more offensive possessions. Then too, "Our rebounding is better. And that helps our defense...It prevents teams from running out" and getting high-percentage shots."

Against the Sixers, "We had them shooting jump shots at the start, which I thought was important."

As their defense has improved, so has their record.

In moving to 36-23 -- the No. 5 record in the West and No. 9 in the NBA overall -- the Suns now have won four straight and 10 of their last 12.

They are 5-1 since the All Star break, the NBA's best such mark. Against the Sixers, they ran up a 58-47 halftime lead then outscored the Sixers 15-6 in the first 3:20 of the second half to wrap it up.

The Suns got Steve Nash back in the lineup a night after missing a game at the Thunder with a sore back and abdomen.

"We just want to make sure this doesn't develop into something where he misses five or six games," Suns coach Alvin Gentry said of Nash, who missed his first game of the season. Without Nash, the Suns scored their "best win of the year" in coming from behind to defeat the Thunder, who had won nine straight, Gentry said.

Replacing Nash Tuesday was backup Goran Dragic, who recorded his first career double-double with 16 points and a career high 10 assists.

Against the Sixers, Nash was back in fine form.

Check out these numbers: -- 8-for-9 from the floor. -- 2-for-3 on 3-pointers. -- Thirteen assists and just two turnovers.

He finished with 20 points in just 29 minutes.

"I wasn't sure how my body would feel," Nash said. "More than anything, I had some energy...and my legs."

Though he didn't feel great, "Things went well for me," Nash said. "The ball went in the basket." Though it's too soon to say, Nash wouldn't rule out sitting for another game or two down the season's stretch.

This might not be a bad idea.

Consider that Wednesday night was the 11th time Nash played this season on two days' rest. He's averaging 21.9 points and 12.4 assists in these situations. Also, Jason Richardson tallied his third straight 20-point game (24) the first time he's done this since Nov. 25-29.

Remarkably, the Suns are 18-2 when Richardson scores 20-plus. "It's not just me...Our defense is carrying us," Richardson said. As for the Sixers, who had won seven of their previous 10, they just didn't have many answers for the Suns.

"I didn't have any problem with our effort," coach Eddie Jordan said.

"I just thought there was a stretch where we didn't execute well...and they just had it going. "Nash 6-for-6 at halftime. He was at a high level and (Amar'e) Stoudemire (22 points) was very good.

"We just couldn't get a handle on those guys." Andre Igoudala (20 points) said, "They do a good job of everybody doing their part, setting screens and getting a guy open for a shot."

They had a memorable gaffe, too, drawing a technical foul for having six men on the floor in the opening moments of the fourth quarter.
