Notebook: Suns 105, Bobcats 95


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Feb 02, 2014 12:13 AM - Updated Sun Feb 02, 2014 12:39 AM

THE FACT: The Phoenix Suns (29-18), winners of five straight, are playing at a 50-win pace. Before the season, they were picked by many to be the Western Conference's worst team.

THE LEAD: Goran Dragic scored 25 points as the Phoenix Suns grabbed a 105-95 win over the visiting Charlotte Bobcats (21-28) on Saturday night.

The Suns led by 27, 90-63, to start the final quarter. The Bobcats never got closer than 10, and that was in the closing seconds.

Dragic has a four-game streak of scoring 20-plus, while shooting more than 50 percent and passing for at least five assists. No Suns' player has put up these numbers in four straight since Steve Nash five years ago.

The Suns put the clamps on Bobcats big man Al Jefferson, who had been on a tear, limiting him to 10 points. Jefferson had set franchise marks by scoring 30-plus in three straight games and 20-plus in 11 straight.

QUOTABLE: "I think so, yes, especially with this record. I was sad, full of emotion, when I found out [he wasn't picked as a reserve]. We still have a small chance...(but) the playoffs are more important."
-- Phoenix's Goran Dragic on whether the Suns deserve an All Star

THE STAT: The Suns outrebounded the Bobcats, 51-34.

TURNING POINT: When the Suns put their starters back in the game in the second quarter. The result was that the Suns went on a 9-0 run to end the half with a 59-41 lead.

QUOTABLE II: "[The Suns] are so quick, so skilled (and) have the one thing that we didn't have -- guys who can go off the dribble. They spread you out with their shooting but then they beat you going at matchups with just a bunch of guys who can take their guys one-on-one. They are last in the NBA in assists because it's a lot of one-on-one, break down their guys...and if you come off to help, boom! There's an open 3."

--Bobcats' coach Steve Clifford

HOT: The Suns, an inconsistent free-throw shooting team, knocked down 20-for-23.

NOT: Jefferson, who was coming off a 40-point game at the Los Angeles Lakers, shot just 4-for-15.

QUOTABLE III: "You can't have many nights like that; we just didn't try. We have no effort to start the game against a team that, if you're not ready to play and defend, you have no chance against them."
-- Clifford

ROOKIE WATCH: For the Bobcats, Cody Zeller had 11 points and six boards in 19 minutes. For the Suns, Archie Goodwin, after a brief trip to the NBA's D-League, had four points, two rebounds and an assist in 15 minutes. Alex Len had two points, three rebounds, a block and four fouls in 19 minutes. Dionte Christmas had four points in eight minutes.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Suns forward Marcus Morris has averaged 15.7 points on 55 percent shooting, including 5-for-10 on 3-pointers, in the past three games.

NOTABLE: The Suns are coming off a road trip that may be a first for the franchise: The Suns went undefeated (4-0) while finishing up by beating the team that -- at the time -- had the league's best record (34-9). The Suns also swept the Pacers; never in franchise history have the Suns swept the team that finished No. 1 in the East....With the near wire-to-wire win over the Bobcats, the Suns have trailed for only 1:59 in their past four games...The Suns are 12-6 vs. Eastern teams this season...Anthony Tolliver (14 points) led the Bobcats in scoring for just the second time (21 at Minnesota on Jan. 10)...The Suns swept the Bobcats for the seventh time in the 10-season series.

UP NEXT: For the Bobcats, Tuesday @ Golden State, Thursday vs. Spurs and Tuesday, Feb. 11 vs. Mavericks. For the Suns, Tuesday vs. Bulls, Wednesday @ Houston and Saturday vs, Warriors.
