Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Without Steve Nash running the offense, the league-leading Phoenix Suns looked lost. Nash left a minute into the second quarter after getting kneed in the left thigh and the Suns were routed by the Indiana Pacers, 101-83, in their lowest output of the season. Averaging a league-best 11 assists per game, Nash suffered the injury in a collision as he drove the lane. He also suffered a scatch across the nose in the first quarter and played just 11 minutes. Nash is listed as day-to-day with a thigh bruise. "Some people said we needed some adversity to become a good team; well, there's some adversity for you," Phoenix coach Mike D'Antoni said. The Suns got a glimpse of how important Nash is to their success, managing just 15 points in the third quarter. Overall, they were held 27 points below their league-high average of 110 per game. "We deal with missing people every day," said Pacers forward Jermaine O'Neal, who scored 29 points. "But obviously, Nash is the motor that makes the car run. They have a lot of great, athletic players on that team, but without him dribbling around and penetrating and dishing, it makes it hard for them to score." Casey Jacobsen played 27 minutes in Nash's absence and scored 10 points. "He's one of the best players in the league," Jacobsen said of Nash. "You ask any team if they would like losing their best player. We didn't like it very much tonight." Amare Stoudemire scored 26 points but just two in the fourth quarter for Phoenix (31-6), which has dropped consecutive games for just the second time this season and failed to reach the century mark for just the sixth time. The Suns' previous low came in a 97-93 loss to Minnesota on December. "We need this," Stoudemire said. "It's a little bit of a wake-up call, especially on defense. We have to play hard for 48 minutes and learn to do better at things like closing out shooters." The Pacers were ready for this one, avenging their worst defeat of the season. Five days ago, they were drubbed, 124-89, in Phoenix. But Indiana never trailed in the rematch, shooting 65 percent (13-of-20) from the field in the first quarter when Nash was on the court. O'Neal scored 12 points in the period as the Pacers built a 32-23 lead. "With those guys, if you run up and down the floor with them, there's no way you are going to beat them," O'Neal said. "You have to make them play half-court offense and wear them down of defense, and that's what we did tonight." The Suns closed to 53-48 at the break, but Indiana took control in the third quarter, opening a 77-61 on Fred Jones' jumper with 1:05 left. "The difference between this game and the first one is about 40 points," D'Antoni said. "We are struggling a little bit and we aren't playing real fluid right now. We have to toughen up. Of course, losing Nash was a factor." Jamaal Tinsley scored 18 points and Jones added 14 off the bench for the Pacers, who held the Suns to 39 percent (31-of-79).
