Suns head into much-needed break with win over Pacers


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Suns are playing like a team that could use a break.

Good thing for them, they'll get one.

Their star point guard is playing hurt and they look sluggish at times, as they did in their sometimes methodical, sometimes wild 113-105 win Saturday night over the visiting, lottery bound Pacers.

The Suns, the first NBA team to play 65 games so far this season, will get nearly a week's break before they host the Lakers on Friday.

Saturday's win over the Pacers followed Thursday's come-from-ahead loss to the Jazz, a game in which they led by double digits in the fourth quarter before the Jazz rolled past them.

Goran Dragic joined Leandro Barbosa on the bench for the second straight game, increasing the pressure on an ailing Steve Nash at the point.

Dragic has a sprained ankle, Barbosa a wrist injury.

With this in mind, "You have to pressure Nash," Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said beforehand.

"You have to make him work, make him guard you."

To be sure, Nash struggled at times, shooting 6-for-15 for 12 points plus five assists and five turnovers.

The Suns are hoping both Dragic and Barbosa (who has been out for more than a month) will return at home Friday vs. the Lakers.

Moreover, they hope the break will allow Nash to bounce back from nagging abdomen and back problems.

"He wanted to gut this game out," Suns coach Alvin Gentry said.

Considering Nash's injuries in particular, "It's really a good time for us (for a break) even though we're playing good basketball," Gentry said.

By contrast, Grant Hill seems to be getting younger by the game.

The graybeard (37) small forward continued his outstanding play with 22 points on 6-for-9 shooting. He hit all 10 of his free throws.

Hill, who has missed only one game in the past two seasons, covered the Pacers' best player, Danny Granger, and served as Nash's backup at point guard.

"I can't say enough about Grant and the level he's playing at," Gentry said. "Everybody should coach him at some point. They don't make them like him."

Amar'e Stoudemire led the Suns with 30 points.

As for the Pacers, they concluded a brutally tough road trip at 0-4, with losses at the Lakers, Trail Blazers, Nuggets and Suns.

While trying to "win every basketball game," O'Brien said, they're also trying to give extended minutes to such young players as Josh McRoberts, a 6-foot-10 forward.

"Josh McRoberts has played solid offensively," said O'Brien. "If he can continue...and improve his defense, he'll get more and more looks. Same with (guard) A.J. Price... But they'll have to earn it."

Against the Suns, McRoberts played 17 minutes in part because of Roy Hibbert's foul problems. He shot 3-for-7 for seven points plus three rebounds.

Other youngsters, such as center Hibbert and off guard Brandon Rush also will continue to get "lots of minutes," O'Brien said.

"We'll continue to grow them."

T.J. Ford started ahead of Earl Watson for the second straight game at the point.

"I think we're playing our best right now with him at the point," O'Brien said.

Ford, however, shot just 3-for-12 for seven points.

Granger led the Pacers with 24 points while Hibbert added 22.

The Suns moved to 40-25 with the win. The Pacers dropped to 20-43.

The game also marked the 1,900th win in Suns' history. The Suns own the fourth-highest winning percentage in NBA history at .560. They trail only the Lakers (.619), Celtics (.594) and Spurs (.580).

The game was marred by an altercation between the teams in which Suns big man Channing Frye was ejected.

With the Suns leading 87-83 in the minute of the third quarter, Nash hit a short jumper.

At the same time, the Pacers' Earl Watson slapped Frye's hands and then pushed Frye.

Frye pushed back, and then the Pacers' Granger rushed into the fray and pushed Frye, who appeared to take a swing at Granger.

Frye drew two technicals and an ejection. Other technicals went to Granger, Hibbert and the Suns' Jason Richardson.

"It wasn't the right play," Frye acknowledged, but said he considered Watson's actions "inappropriate."

"I want to emphasize it's not my style of play to be pushing people and to be doing things like that. But I think at a certain point you have to protect yourself."

Earlier, McRoberts and the Suns Lou Amundson locked arms, refused to untangle and drew a double technical.
