Notebook: Wizards 101, Suns 95


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Jan 25, 2014 1:01 AM - Updated Sat Jan 25, 2014 1:01 AM

THE FACT: The Phoenix Suns are 16-8 with currently injured guard Eric Bledsoe, and now 8-10 without him..

THE LEAD: The Washington Wizards pulled out a thrilling 101-95 win over the Suns on Friday night in Phoenix. The Wizards (21-21) took advantage of Suns' (24-18) mistakes all night en route to victory. The Suns had 21 turnovers; they had been averaging an NBA-best 11.5 turnovers in January. The Wizards also came up with clutch shots in the closing minutes, including a 3-pointer and a mid-range jumper by Bradley Beal to seal the game.

Trevor Ariza led the Wizards with 23 points, seven rebounds and four steals. He also defended the Suns' Channing Frye effectively late. John Wall had an outstanding game with 18 points, 12 assists and just two turnovers. Beal added 17 points, six boards and four steals. Nene had 18 points and eight boards.

For the Suns, Goran Dragic had 19 points and 11 assists.

QUOTABLE: "The kid [Wall] has got the heart of a lion. I'll take players like that."
-- Wizards coach Randy Wittman

THE STAT: The Wizards outrebounded the Suns 44-30, including 19-9 on the offensive boards. This helped the Wizards to get 15 more shots (86-71) than the Suns.

TURNING POINT: The Wizards, down 57-51 to start the second half, got off to a 17-6 start in the third quarter to take a 68-83 lead. The Suns never led a again, but they managed to tie the game, 93-93, with 2:43 left and had the chance to take the lead with P.J. Tucker at the line. But he missed both free throws, and Beal responded with a 3-pointer. Then, with the Wizards leading, 97-95 in the final 30 seconds, Beal hit a 16-footer to seal it.

QUOTABLE II: "It reminds me of chasing Steve Nash...I had to keep chasing him."
-- Washington's John Wall on defending Goran Dragic

QUOTABLE III: "It was a great battle. It was fun to be here (playing against) a very good team. We showed we can play with anybody."
-- Washington's Marcin Gortat

HOT: Ariza nailed all eight of his free throws. That mark was his career best without a miss.

NOT: The Wizards clamped down on the Suns' 3-point game, limiting them to 7-for-22 (32 percent).

ROOKIE WATCH: The Suns sent off guard Archie Goodwin down to Bakersfield of the NBA Development League. Goodwin, 19, had appeared in 36 games while averaging 3.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and 10.3 minutes. With Leandro Barbosa and Ish Smith establishing themselves behind starters Dragic and Green in the backcourt, "It makes it hard to get another set of minutes for Archie," coach Jeff Hornacek said.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: After seven games in his return to the Suns, Barbosa is averaging 9.1 points on 39 percent shooting. He's had three 10-plus point games.

NOTABLE: The Wizards' Martell Webster, who was ill, did not play. ...The Wizards won their third straight vs. the Suns, their longest streak in the series since winning three in a row from Jan. 26. 2002 to Jan. 27, 2003. ...The Suns are 3-12 when they fail to score 100 points. ...The Suns finished their season-long, five-game homestand at 3-2. ...Wall had his 15th double-double of the season. ...Ariza had his ninth game scoring 20-plus.

UP NEXT: For the Wizards, Saturday @ Utah, Tuesday @ Golden State and Wednesday @ Los Angles Clippers. For the Suns, Sunday @ Cleveland, Monday @ Philadelphia and Wednesday @ Milwaukee.
