Notebook: Suns 106, Spurs 85


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Feb 22, 2014 12:09 AM - Updated Sat Feb 22, 2014 12:09 AM

THE FACT: The Phoenix Suns trail the Los Angeles Clippers in the Pacific Division by only 2.5 games.

THE LEAD: The San Antonio Spurs ran out of horsepower at the end of their rodeo trip.

In rolling to a 106-85 win, the Suns took advantage of a Spurs' team that played its ninth and final game of the lengthy, annual trip that accommodates a rodeo in their home arena.

The Suns moved to 33-21 as they make a push not only for a playoff spot, but perhaps even a shot at a top-four seed and the homecourt advantage in the first round.

Backup guard Ish Smith, looking like Magic Johnson against the weary Spurs, put on a running and passing show in leading the Suns on a stunning 19-0 run in the second quarter.

That made it 38-25, Suns, who controlled the game the rest of the way.

Markieff Morris had a great all-round game for the Suns with 21 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals. Channing Frye added 17 points.

Smith rolled up a career-high 15 points and tied a career high with seven boards.

For the Spurs (40-16), who continued to rest star guard Tony Parker, Danny Green had 15 points.

The Suns have won 11 of their past 15, including three straight.

QUOTABLE: "I'm like Ricky Bobby. I just want to go fast."
-- Ish Smith

THE STAT: The Phoenix Suns are 20-6 when playing with one day of rest, including 12-3 at home.

TURNING POINT: Trailing 25-19, the Suns got the pace moving early in the second quarter; the result was a dazzling 19-0 run.

QUOTABLE II: "Nine in a row is a bit much by anybody's standard."
-- Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, pregame on the end of the rodeo trip

QUOTABLE III: "They were probably itching to get home. They had an off night."
-- Suns coach Jeff Hornacek on the Spurs

QUOTABLE IV: "A lot of credit goes to Jeff. He will try to deflect it all because of who he is. He sets a tone and has a lot of credibility for the way he has carried himself through his career. He is persistent...he played a hard-nosed brand of basketball. He played in a system where standards were high in both places, Utah and Phoenix. His players have the character to respond, adjust and buy into his system and the way he wants to play. They don't have any problems or drama. They compete."
-- Gregg Popovich on Hornacek and the Suns

QUOTABLE V: "We figured that with out style, Ish would be a good fit. He can push the ball. He's an energy guy that other guys can feed off of."
-- Jeff Hornacek on Ish Smith

HOT: Smith shot 7-for-9; Morris, 8-for-10.

NOT: The Spurs hit 2-for-21 on 3-pointers.

GOOD MOVE: Hornacek used Smith extended time, sometimes alongside Goran Dragic, to force a fast pace.

IN THE ARENA: Though there scattered empty seats throughout the building, the Suns called the game a sellout of 18,422. That's the Suns' first sellout of the season and first since April 5, 2013 vs. Golden State.

ROOKIE WATCH: The Suns' Archie Goodwin had nine points in 14 minutes. The Suns' Alex Len had two points in seven minutes.

NOTABLE: The Suns held the Spurs to 35 points in the first half, a Spurs' season low for either half...Even with the easy win, the Suns a lengthy scoring streak snapped. Dragic (eight points) had scored 15-plus in 25 straight games.

UP NEXT: For the Spurs, Wednesday vs. Detroit, Friday vs. Charlotte and Sunday, March 2 vs. Dallas. For the Suns, Sunday vs. Houston, Tuesday vs. Minnesota and Wednesday @ Utah.
