Amar'e proves to be one-man show in big win over Jazz


By Jerry Brown, for NBA.com
Posted Saturday March 20, 2010 2:36AM

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- Suns coach Alvin Gentry doesn't think anyone should be surprised to see Amar'e Stoudemire raising his game to another level as the games left in the regular season dwindle.

That he's suddenly lifted his game out of sight this season? OK, that's new.

In a big game that the Suns had to have, Stoudemire was at his best -- scoring a season-high 44 points on only 16 shots to go with seven rebounds and two blocks in a 110-100 win over Utah that kept both the fourth-place Jazz and homecourt in the first round of the playoffs within reach.

"I've seen him do this after every All-Star break since I've been here," Gentry said. "People forget that in his last game before he hurt his eye [last year], he had 42 points. He's just one of those guys who can raise his pick up his game.

"He's playing as well as I've ever seen him now, though. He's efficient. He's aggressive. He gets himself in great post position, he's added a little jump hook to his game and he's hitting all the free throws."

Stoudemire now has five 30-plus point efforts in his last seven games, and has scored at least 19 in 22 straight, the longest such streak of his career. His string of 33 straight made free throws ended in the third, but he finished 16-for-18 from the line and made the Jazz pay every time he entered the lane.

"It's a beautiful thing for us to have Amar'e dominate like that inside," said Suns guard Steve Nash, who added 15 points and 10 assists. "He's playing with so much heart and passion for the game, it's great to see. It really looks like he's enjoying it."

Stoudemire is also enjoying some help inside. Robin Lopez, whose insertion into the starting lineup dovetails with Stoudemire's spike in productivity, added 19 points and 10 rebounds and the two players combined to hit 21-for-25 shots from the field -- many of them throwdowns.

The Jazz had no answers for Stoudemire. Andrei Kirilenko was out with a calf injury and center Mehmet Okur left with a stomach virus after 12 minutes. Backup Kyrylo Fesenko needed just over nine minutes to foul out, leaving it up to Carlos Boozer and, at times, poor C.J. Miles to deal with the job. It wasn't going to happen.

"He took it to us," Boozer said. "He dominated the game."

Utah coach Jerry Sloan felt his players made that domination easier.

"I thought it was like a pickup game," Sloan said. "Guys drove to the basket and went inside and we kind of stuck our hand out to see if we could stop them. You can't stop them; you've got to put something on them."

Sloan got physical himself in the final seconds in a strange and seemingly unnecessary scene.

Grant Hill fouled Utah's Sundiata Gaines on a dunk attempt as the buzzer sounded, Sloan was upset that Stoudemire -- long out of the game by then -- was on the floor and near the Utah bench as the officials were determining if the game had ended before the foul.

Incensed, Sloan eventually turned his attention to referee Michael Smith and eventually put a forearm into Smith's chest area, leading to his ejection.

"I put my arm up to keep him [Smith] from coming any further," Sloan said. "I've had trouble with him before.

When as if he was concerned his action would lead to a fine or suspension, Sloan said. "I worry about getting hit. That's what I was worried about, so take it from there."

The Jazz rallied from 17 down to beat the Suns in January and used a 41-point fourth-quarter explosion to make up a 13-point stagger in a wild 118-106 win here two weeks ago. But without Kirilenko (calf) and Okur, the Jazz could never make more than cursory bites into the Phoenix lead this time.

The teams meet one more time, in Utah on the final day of the season. And the way things are going in the West, a lot could be on the line.

"They brought it to us from the jump. They played fast and well fell behind," forward Carlos Boozer said. "A couple of time before we were able to come back, but it's tough to do it three times to the same team."

But the Suns aren't the same team. They've won 11 of 14 since the All-Star break, although it hasn't earned them much traction in a tough Western Conference.

"You look up at the scores and San Antonio won and Utah won," said Gentry, who coached his 100th game and 61st win as the Suns head man. "You have to keep pace and the only way to do it is to win."
