Suns get defensive, halt Blazers win streak at five


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Suns have trouble scoring about as often as it snows in downtown Phoenix.

Same goes for their ability to win grind-it-out sort of games.

Then again, they used to employ a zone defense about as often as Suns' fans cheer for the Spurs.

Yet, even though no snowflakes were spotted Sunday night, the NBA's highest scoring team won a tough defensive battle, 93-87, over the visiting Trail Blazers.

In doing so, they overcame 39 percent shooting, a rarity for the game's highest-scoring (110 points) and best-shooting (49 percent) team.

They did so by playing tremendous defense -- the Blazers shot just 36 percent themselves -- including a zone that's becoming a more and more important part of the team's makeup.

The result was that they won a game in which they shot less than 40 percent for the first time in more than two years (Feb. 2, 2008 vs. the SuperSonics).

"Our defense was great; their defense was great," Suns coach Alvin Gentry said.

"We had a tough time generating offense," said Gentry, who saw his star forward Amar'e Stoudemire limited to 18 points thanks to the Blazers defense.

Of his team's defense, Gentry offered praise on how they contained Portland's star, saying, "We played Brandon Roy (8-for-25 for 23 points) about as well as you can play him."

They did so by kicking to the side Gentry's general reluctance to play a zone as a way to counter the Blazers getting the ball to Roy on isolation plays.

"We did a great job in the zone. For the most part, we made them take tough shots."

Though the tactic can't be used for huge stretches of games ("they will find holes in it,"), the Suns have succeeded by covering the corners and forcing time to run off the 24-second clock.

This results in opponents taking tough shots.

"Sometimes, in crunch time, we'll go to it," Gentry said.

Stoudemire called the result "beautiful."

"We're a better defensive team than people think," he said. "We've been focusing on it since training camp."

In this instance, the zone "allowed us to get some rebounds."

He praised the Blazers for trying to deny him the ball and defending the Suns' screen-and-roll game.

"It was definitely physical, a lot of holding and grabbing. But we played through it."

Something had to give Sunday night between two of the NBA's hottest teams.

The Suns had gone 17-5 since Gentry benched star Stoudemire late in a crucial game vs. the Mavericks.

Since then, Stoudemire has emerged with some of the most spectacular play in his career in leading the Suns to a shot at homecourt advantage in the playoffs.

For their part, the Trail Blazers had won five straight.

Maybe more important, they'd gone 9-1 with their current starting lineup of forwards Nicolas Batum and LaMarcus Aldridge, center Marcus Camby and guards Roy and Andre Miller.

The Blazers led narrowly through much of the game and took a 68-64 lead into the fourth quarter.

The Suns took the lead, 79-78, midway through the final period when small forward Jared Dudley rebounded a missed 3-pointer by teammate Channing Frye and scored.

Then Dudley hit a 3-pointer to give the Suns an 82-78 lead.

Next, the Blazers LaMarcus Aldridge missed two free throws.

The Suns took advantage.

Forward Grant Hill raced in for a fast break layup and -- moments later -- he pulled up on another break and nailed a 16-footer for a decisive 86-78 lead with 4:25 left.

The Blazers never recovered, though the Suns made it interesting in the final 40 seconds when they failed to advance the ball past halfcourt in the required eight seconds.

The Blazers' Roy then hit a 3-pointer under pressure to cut the lead to 89-87.

But Nash hit two free throws with 19.5 seconds left, and when Miller missed a 3-pointer the frenzied, sellout throng erupted.

The Suns (44-26) moved to 18 games above .500 for the first time this season.

The win puts the Suns a full game ahead of the Thunder for the No. 5 spot in the West.

They're also two games ahead of the Spurs and Blazers.

Maybe more important in the end, they've pulled to a game behind the No. 4 Jazz.

Finishing No. 4, or higher, ensures the homecourt advantage in the playoffs' first round.

With the teams closely bunched, by the time it's all settled, "Oklahoma City could be second, and Portland could end up fourth," Gentry said.

"I don't think anything is locked up" except the Lakers at No. 1, he said.

"The important thing is we just need to get in the playoffs."

As for the Blazers (42-29), they remain in the No. 8 spot, a half-game behind the Spurs, losers at the Hawks Sunday night.
