Suns rally one 3-pointer at a time to beat Rockets


By Jerry Brown, for NBA.com
Posted Monday April 12, 2010 1:12AM

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- A 14-point lead had evaporated. Channing Frye was 1-for-8 from the field. And with just over three minutes left, another 30-point night from Amar'e Stoudemire was in danger of going to waste -- along with weeks of hard work to position the Suns for homecourt in the first round of the playoffs.

But 107 seconds and four 3-pointers later, the Houston Rockets were suddenly scrubbed and Phoenix's playoff destiny was back in its control.

Trailing 102-100, the Suns exploded on a 12-0 run -- with all the points coming from behind the arc -- and bolted away for a 116-106 win to sweep the season series from the Rockets and keep hopes of a high seed in the wild Western Conference playoff race alive.

Steve Nash put the Suns ahead for good with his third 3-pointer of the game with 3:07 left. Frye, who had just two points in the game to that point, followed an Aaron Brooks miss with another 3-pointer and after a Brooks turnover, Jason Richardson hammered down Phoenix's third bomb in 55 seconds to give the Suns a 109-102 lead.

Frye completed the run with another bomb and the Rockets were down 10 and done for the night as the Suns won their seventh straight at home and their 12th in the last 14 games down the stretch.

"The game was on the line and everyone on the team stepped up," Richardson said. "We were hitting the big shots, but just as important, we got stops on the other end. That's what got us the win."

Combined with Oklahoma City's loss to Golden State, the Suns can finish no lower that fifth in the West. But tied with Utah and Denver and a game behind second-place Dallas, the Suns close out the regular season with games against the Nuggets (at home Tuesday) and Jazz (in Utah Wednesday) with a chance to climb higher with a strong finish.

If the Suns win both games, they will finish no worse than third.

The Rockets had no answers inside for Stoudemire, who scored 35 points and collected five of his 13 rebounds on the offensive end. Stoudemire made several hustle plays including a huge one with 3:40 left, when he lunged to save a Richardson miss from going out of bounds and then finished the possession with a slam off a Richardson pass to tie the game at 100.

"Amar'e scored a lot of points as usual but those plays gave us a chance to take some pressure off ourselves and they were huge," said Nash, who had 23 points and 11 assists including on all of the key 3's by Frye and Richardson. "We've put ourselves in a great position and it's going to be fun on Tuesday. Hopefully we'll be a hungry bunch."

The Rockets aren't going to the playoffs but they are still playing hard. Luis Scola had 20 of his 30 points in the second half and Brooks wound up with 22 including six 3-pointers. Down 81-67 midway through the third quarter, they roared back and took the lead 98-96 on a Brooks bomb with five minutes left.

"That team could go into the playoffs ... stick them in there against anyone and they'd do just fine," Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry said. "Every game against them this season has been like a rollercoaster. They have a lot of weapons and really smart players. Scola's not exceptionally quick or doesn't shoot it exceptionally well ... but by the end of the night he's got 30 points and eight rebounds."

Stoudemire collected at least 35 points and 10 rebounds for the fifth time this season -- and the second time against the Rockets. He hit the 30-point mark for the 11th time since the All-Star Break -- only Kevin Durant of the Thunder has more (13). But for awhile, it didn't look like it was going to be enough.

"We were doing a pretty good job (defensively). Amar'e was getting his but we were controlling the other guys," Scola said. "They just hit the clutch shots at the end."

Phoenix hasn't lost at home since falling to the Lakers on Mar. 12 and they are averaging 119.2 points during the seven wins, topping the 110-point mark six times. But the last one, Tuesday against the Nuggets, is the most important.

"The next two games are going to be like the playoffs have started," Richardson said. "Both (Denver and Utah) are fighting for homecourt and so are we. They'll be huge."
