Suns' Lopez comes up big in 125-112 win over Clippers


By Jerry Brown, for NBA.com
Posted Saturday February 27, 2010 1:25AM

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- Robin Lopez never scored 30 points during his college career in Stanford.

He said he never scored 30 in high school either.

So there wasn't much for the second-year center to compare with Friday's career night when he scored 30 points, grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds and led the Suns to the 11th win in their last 13 games, a 125-112 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

But it was an experience he could certainly get used to.

"I've never had a night like that, but it's a good feeling and I can see why people enjoy it," said Lopez, who hit 13 of his first 14 shots from the floor and had 19 -- three short of his career high -- in the first half alone. "I just try to be very efficient out there. Whenever my teammates ran an option, I've just got to put the ball in the basket. That tells me I'm doing my job out there."

And since Lopez entered the starting lineup to give the Suns a more physical presence inside, the Suns have done a job on the rest of the NBA. He has scored in double figures in 16 of his last 21 games, and topped a 22-point effort against his twin brother Brook and the New Jersey Nets last month with the night of his basketball life.

Brook still has the Lopez family's career high, scoring 32 against Portland on Nov. 25.

The Suns might not have expected Lopez's numbers Friday, but it's becoming apparent why they were so disappointed when Lopez suffered a broken bone in his left foot in training camp -- forcing him to miss the first 15 games and set back what had been a promising summer.

"What's impressed me the last 10 games has been the offensive rebounds, the put-backs and the screen-and-roll where he's really rolling hard to the basket," said Suns forward Grant Hill, who had a nice night of his own with 16 points, six rebounds and six assists. "He's finishing at the rim, finishing with the mid-range jumper, the hook shot is developing ... guys are getting more and more confident throwing the ball into him. Tonight he showed he can score against an All-Star center."

Lopez scored many of his 19 first-half points against that center, Chris Kaman. But Kaman lasted only 20 seconds in the second half after picking up two technical fouls and earning an ejection after complaining about Lopez's physical play.

"Chris crossed the line [with] what he said to the referee," Clippers interim coach Kim Hughes said. "He wasn't getting calls and I agree with him, but [what he said] isn't going to do him any good, and after having one technical you have to be careful. He can't put the team in a position like that. He's too valuable to be thrown out. It was just a bad basketball play."

The Clippers came into the game with three straight wins, but all of them came at home. It's been a different story on the road, where the Clippers have lost 16 of the last 18 and haven't won in Phoenix in their last six tries.

Amar'e Stoudemire added 20 points for the Suns and the duo of Channing Frye and Jared Dudley combined for 27 and five of Phoenix's nine 3-pointers off the bench, including 18 in the fourth quarter when the Suns push their lead from four to 14 points.

"We were playing good defense and then they stretched us out and started knocking down a lot of threes," guard Eric Gordon said. "Channing Frye hit (three) 3-pointers in a row and that's what it came down to. We played pretty good; we just couldn't score as much as they did."

The effort by the bench also allowed the Suns to sit Steve Nash, Jason Richardson and Stoudemire for the entire fourth quarter with a quick turnaround to Sunday's nationally televised afternoon game in San Antonio against the Spurs.

"Getting the rest was very, very important," said Stoudemire, who has scored 20 points or more in 12 of his last 13 games. "We have that early game in San Antonio and that crowd is going to be simply amazing at the Alamo, but we're going to be alright. We just have to come out and play the way we did [Friday] and keep that same focus."

The Suns won their fifth straight overall and swept the season series from the Clippers, whom they have now beaten seven straight times overall. The Suns have swept all seven games against their Pacific Division foes at US Airways Center this season, averaging 117.3 points and winning by an average margin of 16.3 points.

Head coach Alvin Gentry wasn't happy to see what has been an uptick in the Suns defensive effort take a step backward against the Clippers. Hughes said before the game that the plan was to attack the Suns inside with penetrators Eric Gordon (25 points), Baron Davis (13) and Steve Blake, and that mission was accomplished.

"Another good win, but our defense was not so good," Gentry said. "We didn't do a good job of keeping them out of the paint."

But the Clippers had no luck keeping Lopez out of the paint either. He had four of Phoenix's eight offensive rebounds and is taking advantage of being the player left open by defenses.

"I'm not thinking of making a big impact out there. I'm thinking more of the little things," he said. "We've got Steve, Amar'e, J-Rich and Grant Hill out there to do the big things. I'm playing with the greatest passer. Amar'e is in the post, sucking the defender away and we have great shooters. It makes it very easy for me out there."
