Streaking Suns pick up ninth straight win in New Jersey

EAST RUTHERFORD (NBA.com exclusive) -- Team temperature can be a relative thing.

Hot for the Nets means a last-ditch effort to get out of the NBA cellar. For the Suns however, hot is winning nine straight games after a 116-105 victory over New Jersey on Wednesday night at the IZOD Center to keep pace with the elite of the Western Conference.

"This team is battling for playoff position and this game really means something to them," Nets interim coach Kiki Vandeweghe said of the Suns. "We had to have great focus and intensity for 48 minutes. Unfortunately, we had it for about 42 minutes."

Jason Richardson scored 12 of his 23 points in a breakaway third quarter for the Suns, while Steve Nash recorded 24 points and 14 assists. The Suns, who had 11 3-pointers on the night, were trailing the Jazz by -game for third place in the West, with Utah hosting Golden state on Wednesday night.

New Jersey, which won its 10th game of the season with its surprising 90-84 decision over the Spurs, has had thoughts of catching the Timberwolves to avoid having the worst record in the NBA this season - despite the fact it would hurt the team's chances of landing the No. 1 pick in the draft. But as of now, the Nets (10-65) still trail Minnesota (15-60) with each team having seven games to play.

Rookie Terrence Williams was a bright spot for New Jersey, with his career-high 21 points. Brook Lopez had 19 points and eight rebounds, while Courtney Lee and Kris Humphries had 17 points apiece. Devin Harris, playing with a sore back, was held to nine points on 2-of-10 shooting.

Despite the Suns' scorching play of late, they still entered a little tired coming off Tuesday night's 111-105 win over the Bulls. The Nets took advantage early on, leading by seven in the second quarter and taking a 53-50 lead into halftime.

"They were doing everything they could do to prevent me from getting the ball," said Suns forward Amar'e Stoudemire, who finished with 15 points.

After their mid-game respite, the Suns recovered and opened the third quarter with a game-defining 13-0 run. Phoenix had a 63-53 lead and opened it to an 86-71 edge by the end of the period, having outscored the Nets, 38-23, in the frame.

"It was tough, especially on a back-to-back," Nash said. "We had a tough game in Chicago. We didn't get in New Jersey until three in the morning. We had to find a way to win."

The Nets, who were missing Chris Douglas-Roberts due to back spasms, never got closer than five in the fourth quarter. A Nash 3-pointer with 5:02 left iced it at 107-95.

"They came out guns blazing (in the third quarter)," Harris said. "They got out in transition. They got some easy looks, but all night long they shot the three incredibly well. And with a team like that, they're going to shoot threes, but you've got to try and limit their looks as much as possible. And they shot a good percentage tonight and when they do that, they're tough to beat."

The game marked another chance for the Nets to see another potential coveted free agent in Stoudemire, who has been making up for Robin Lopez's absence and averaging 28.6 points, 10.3 rebounds and 61 percent shooting over his previous eight games. Stoudemire is slated to make $17.7 million next season, but could opt out of his contract to secure a longer-term deal now.

Before the game, Stoudemire spoke highly of the Nets to reporters.

"I think this franchise is definitely going to turn things around here soon," he said. "New ownership is coming in. They're looking to move to Brooklyn. All that is a factor."
