Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- Playing at a high altitude clearly did not affect Amare Stoudemire, Quentin Richardson and the Phoenix Suns. Stoudemire scored 32 points and Richardson added 19, including a follow shot at the buzzer, as the Suns edged the undermanned Denver Nuggets, 107-105, for their ninth straight victory. Steve Nash collected 15 points and 10 assists for the league-leading Suns (22-3), who have won 18 of their last 19 games. Despite missing star forward Carmelo Anthony (sprained left ankle) and center Marcus Camby (bronchitis), the Nuggets hung tough, twice tying the game in the last minute on baskets by Kenyon Martin, including a driving layup that knotted the contest, 105-105, with 16 seconds left. In a hectic final sequence, Richardson had a layup attempt blocked by Denver big man Nene. Stoudemire grabbed the rebound and missed a follow shot, but Richardson tipped in the rebound to stun the Pepsi Center crowd. "My first dunk got blocked," Richardson said. "But I knew the second one was good. The light was on, and I saw the ball going threw the hoop." "It was a great game," said Phoenix head coach Mike D'Antoni, whose squad shot 53 percent (43-of-81). "I thought we were a little sluggish and they were, too. It was like two heavyweight fighters going back and forth." Denver, which played without Anthony for the second straight game, led throughout the first half and held a 54-53 edge at the break. Phoenix went on an 11-0 run to open a 75-64 advantage with 4:36 remaining in the third quarter but Denver fought back and closed the gap to 81-77 at the end of the period. "I am very proud of the effort that my players gave tonight," Nuggets head coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "We played well shorthanded against the hottest team in the league. We just came up a little bit short." Andre Miller collected his first double-double of the season with 23 points and a season-high 11 assists for the Nuggets, who shot 51 percent (43-of-84). "We made a good scramble at the end," Miller said. "It was a good effort by both teams. We had a tough road trip and we still came out and played hard." Neither team led by more than four points during the exciting fourth quarter. The final five minutes saw ties on four different occasions. "The final minutes are the fun time to play the game," Nash said. "Especially when it's close like that and you're on the road. It's just fun to challenge yourself." Martin added 22 points and 11 rebounds and Nene chipped in 19 and 10 for the Nuggets, who visit Seattle on Wednesday night. Anthony is listed as questionable for the contest and Camby is day-to-day.
