Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) - Steve Nash insisted on playing despite suffering a mild concussion four days ago. The Phoenix Suns were glad he did. Nash scored 20 points and dished out 14 assists to help the Suns to their eighth consecutive victory Tuesday night, 115-102, over the Utah Jazz. "Every time we missed a shot, they were out on the break," Jazz forward Carlos Boozer said. "Steve Nash is probably one of the best point guards in the game right now." Nash, who left Friday's game against the New Orleans Hornets when he took an elbow to the face from David West, scored all his points in the first three quarters. His scoring wasn't needed in the fourth, as Amare Stoudemire and Quentin Richardson combined for 19 points. "We play hard, we play together and we play unselfish," Richardson said. "We play to our strengths. We don't have guys trying to get out of what they do best. Our guys stick to it. If you play like that and continue to play smart, you can't help but get positive results." "I though they (the Jazz) did a good job," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "But we just kept coming at them. Amare got on the break a couple times and broke their back. Quentin hit a couple of big ones, (so did) Joe Johnson. Everybody contributed something." Stoudemire scored 29 points - nine in the fourth quarter - along with nine rebounds. He took a feed from Nash for a two-handed dunk to cap a 16-4 run in the final period that broke open the contest and gave the Suns a 103-92 lead. He also put the finishing touches on the Jazz in the closing minutes, scoring a pair of buckets, including a three-point play and a pair of free throws on three successive possessions to give Phoenix its biggest lead, 110-94. "We played a little up and down, played bad here and there," Richardson said. "But we always know that at some point we're going to get a run off. In this game, it just happened right where we needed it to close them out." The Suns, who entered the game's final quarter with a slim 82-80 lead, finally got their outside shooting game going in the fourth, and it proved deadly for the Jazz. After making just 3-of-18 3-pointers through the first three quarters, the Suns connected on 5-of-8 in the fourth period, including three during the 16-4 run. "We got some key shots there toward the end when we needed to," Suns forward Shawn Marion said. "They made a run. They're a good team ... but we buckled down there at the end, got some stops and pushed the lead out to where they couldn't catch up with us." Richardson had two 3-pointers and scored 10 of his 18 points in the final period. Marion had 21 points, nine rebounds and four blocks for the Suns, who have the NBA's best record (12-2) and finished their most successful November with their longest winning streak in five years. "We had a lot of energy," Stoudemire said. "That's why it's important to be in good shape because in the fourth quarter, we really came out strong. We probably played the fastest in the fourth quarter to seal the game. Those key threes put the game away for us." The Jazz lost for the sixth time in eight games as they played without All-Star forward Andrei Kirilenko, the league's leading shot-blocker averaging nearly five per game, who was placed on the injured list with a sprained right knee. Utah clearly missed his presence on the defensive side of the ball, registering just one blocked shot, and allowed the Suns to shoot nearly 54 percent (42-of-78) from the field in raising their road record to 7-1. Rookie Kris Humphries, activated before the game, provided a bit of a lift off the bench for Utah, scoring 13 points and picking up the Jazz's lone blocked shot. Boozer led the Utah with 27 points - none in the fourth quarter - and a season-high 18 rebounds. Matt Harpring started for Kirilenko and scored 19 points.
