Notebook: Suns 94, Pelicans 88


Bradley Handwerger, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Apr 10, 2014 12:02 AM - Updated Thu Apr 10, 2014 12:02 AM

THE FACT: Phoenix has won eight of the past 10 games against New Orleans, including all four this season.

THE LEAD: Gerald Green scored 21 points and Goran Dragic had 20 points and nine assists as Phoenix held off New Orleans 94-88 Wednesday night at the Smoothie King Center. Green, who had flu-like symptoms a day earlier, didn't appear to have any lingering effects. He was an efficient 8-of-14 shooting in just 24 minutes.

New Orleans (32-46) nearly pulled off the upset with five of its top seven scorers sidelined with injuries, including forward Anthony Davis, who sat while mending from back spasms. But while Jeff Withey, who set a career-high with 17 points, and Darius Miller, who scored 14 points, picked up some of the slack, the Pelicans' usual scoring suspects still playing went silent. Tyreke Evans scored only 10 points and Brian Roberts had only 2.

The Suns (47-31), meanwhile, were able to counter by shooting 48.8 percent from the floor, including 9 of 19 form 3-point range. Twelve of Green's 21 points, in fact, came from behind the arc. Phoenix also forced 14 Pelicans turnovers, turning them into 16 points.

Eric Bledsoe finished with 16 points, six assists and six rebounds while PJ Tucker added 15 points and nine rebounds off the bench for Phoenix.

QUOTABLE: "They're all 'can't lose' at this point and we didn't play very well."
-- Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek

THE STAT: 26-8 -- That was Phoenix's advantage in fast-break points. New Orleans couldn't find a way to slow down the Suns and Phoenix took advantage of the quick pace and the poor Pelicans shooting.

TURNING POINT: New Orleans looked like it finally was going to get over the hump and put Phoenix away, going on an 11-3 run that had the Suns reeling. So much so, in fact, that Green was called for a technical foul for arguing a foul. But Phoenix answered following an Austin Rivers missed jumper. Bledsoe's fourth assists, this one to Dragic for a layup, stopped the Pelicans and put Phoenix back on the offensive.

QUOTABLE II: "I have nothing to complain about with our group. We held that team to 94 points. We couldn't score in the first and third quarter, but we scrapped and played the way we like to play. Just couldn't put the ball in the basket enough times."
-- Pelicans coach Monty Williams

HOT: The Pelicans' Jeff Withey doesn't see much playing time but he has been taking advantage of the little he does play. Since March 29, the rookie is 20 of 25 shooting, including 7 of 10 Wednesday against Phoenix.

BAD MOVE: The Pelicans were within one point late in the game when Williams decided to keep the team's two-highest scorers of the game on the bench. The gambit failed to pay off as New Orleans didn't score a point in the final 2:18 of the game.

NOTABLE: The Pelicans' Evans played through a right calf injury suffered in the first half. ... Markief Morris scored 10 points and had six points off the bench for Phoenix. ... For only the third time this season, four Pelicans scored in double figures off the bench. ... Phoenix took only 10 free throws. ... Luke Babbitt had a season-high for New Orleans.

UP NEXT: For the Pelicans, Friday @ Oklahoma City, Saturday @ Houston, Monday vs. Oklahoma City. For the Suns, Friday @ San Antonio, Saturday @ Dallas, Monday vs. Memphis.
