Suns secure big win over Spurs to stay in chase out West


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Thursday April 8, 2010 2:02AM

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- Win a game and you'll stay in place. Lose and you come close to dropping off the map.

That's the situation in the West these days.

So the Suns' rousing 112-101 win Wednesday night over the visiting Spurs, their biggest rival of the past decade, merely gives them a shot at grabbing home-court advantage in the first round.

To actually achieve this, though, they may have to sweep their four remaining games.

So dominant were the Suns over their old nemesis that Steve Nash rested comfortably during the entire fourth quarter.

"If we lose, I'd be fired on the spot," joked Suns coach Alvin Gentry.

Nash's backup, Goran Dragic, sealed the game with a 3-point fast break then made a spectacular steal and -- while sprawled on the floor -- tapped the ball to Grant Hill for another fast break.

That made it 109-92 with 3:58 left.

Nobody is happier with Dragic's break-out play this season than Nash, who has long had to worry about backup help.

"That's what makes us a really good team, the chemistry and how everyone pulls for one another," Gentry said.

The Suns' strategy was "all about trying to contain [Manu] Ginobili," the Spurs' sizzling off guard while trying to limit Tim Duncan's touches as well, Gentry said.

They succeeded, with Jason Richardson (20 points) getting the main duties on Ginobili while Channing Frye covered Duncan with help from Lou Amundson.

Amare Stoudemire (13-for-22 for 29 points) was the game's dominant force, while Nash had 18 points and 12 assists in 30 minutes.

For the Spurs, Roger Mason had 18 off the bench while Richard Jefferson added 17.

The Suns limited Ginobili to 14 on 5-for-14 shooting while Duncan had 14 on 5-for-10 shooting plus seven rebounds and four turnovers.

The Suns had just nine turnovers (to 18 for the Spurs), which helped offset the Spurs' expected rebounding advantage (46-38).

The Suns (51-27) won for the 11th time in 12 games. Their 20-5 mark since the All-Star break is the NBA's best.

The Suns are one of three Western teams at 51-27.

The Mavericks and Nuggets automatically get the tie-breaker with the Suns because they are both division leaders. So the Suns right now are the No. 4 seed, a half-game ahead of the No. 5 Jazz.

The Spurs dropped to 48-30, the same record as the Thunder and Trail Blazers. The tie-breakers have the Trail Blazers No. 6, the Spurs No. 7 and the Thunder No. 8.

The Suns won the battle, but -- with their franchise's storied postseason bad luck holding frightfully true to form -- the bigger picture is far murkier.

That's because Gentry acknowledged that their emerging defensive force, center Robin Lopez is "probably a long shot" to return this season because of back problems.

Lopez has been a vital part of the Suns' improved defense and rebounding this season.

As a starter for 31 games, he averaged 11.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and shoot 59 percent from the floor.

More important, they were 22-9 with him in the starting lineup.

"As far as him coming back," Gentry said, "it's probably a long shot with the situation he's in.

"We're holding out hope but we're preparing as if he's not going to be here. If he comes back, it will be a big plus."

Lopez could single-cover big men such as Duncan, a vital asset in playoff settings.

"His size meant a lot to us ... he was what the doctor ordered for our team and he exceeded all our expectations on offense," Gentry said.

Lopez will be examined in about another week.

As for the Spurs, coach Gregg Popovich indicated that team officials are closing in on a multi-year deal for Ginobili.

"We're talking a lot more now than we did earlier to see if we can get something done now," Popovich said. "We are working on it, that's for sure."

Ginobili got off to a sluggish start this season "for a variety of reasons," Popovich said.

"But he's been an All-Star performer for the last month or month and a half. It's really helped our team come together, especially with Tony [Parker] being down. He's really put us on his shoulders."

Since the All-Star break, Ginobili had averaged 22.5 points on 49 percent shooting; before the break, his numbers were 13.4 and 40 percent.

Behind Ginobili, the Spurs had gone 17-6 heading into the game with the Suns.
