Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns finally figured out a way to win without Steve Nash. With Nash nursing a strained left hamstring, Leandro Barbosa filled in with a season-high 22 points as the Suns posted a 118-101 victory over the reeling Los Angeles Clippers. Phoenix, which averages a NBA-best 110.2 points, did not look the same in its three previous games without its All-Star point guard, scoring just 87.3 per game in three losses. The Suns did not miss a beat in this one because of Barbosa, who made 9-of-15 shots and grabbed six rebounds. "This was my best game," Barbosa said. "I learned a lot from Steve and I tried to do some of the things that he does. I just played like I know how to play. I can score when I have the ball, but right now it is more important to make plays for the guys." In addition to missing Nash, Phoenix also played a majority of the game without fellow All-Star Amare Stoudemire, who played just 12 minutes through three quarters because of foul trouble. After Stoudemire went to the bench 30 seconds into the second period with three fouls, reserve Jim Jackson scored seven of his 13 points in a 16-6 spurt that opened a 45-32 cushion with seven minutes to go in the half. "I am really happy for the guys psychologically that we put up 118 points without Nash or Amare almost the first half," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. Leading 60-49 at the break, Phoenix pulled away with a 12-4 run midway through the third quarter. After Elton Brand drew Los Angeles within 68-60 with just under eight minutes on the clock, Barbosa nailed a 14-footer on the other end to ignite the spurt. He added a pair of free throws before capping the burst with a driving layup that made it 80-64 with 5:16 remaining. "Leandro came in and gave us great energy," said All-Star Suns forward Shawn Marion, who scored 13 points in 31 minutes. "He was knocking down his shots and getting to the basket." Barbosa was able to take advantage of Los Angeles' thin backcourt, which was missing the injured Marko Jaric, Shaun Livingston and Kerry Kittles. "Barbosa is pretty good," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "He is very quick and can get to the rim. We didn't have an answer for the position." Joe Johnson scored 22 points and former Clipper Quentin Richardson added 18 and seven rebounds for the Suns (42-13), who shot 56 percent (45-of-80) from the field and ensured a winning record after posting just 29 victories last season. "It was definitely great to win without Steve but at the same time you have to acknowledge we were playing the Clippers," Richardson said. "They are not on the same level as the teams we played before and lost to when we didn't have Steve." Bobby Simmons scored 23 points and Brand contributed 17 and 12 rebounds as the Clippers closed a disastrous road trip. After opening its nine-game swing with a win in Memphis, Los Angeles has lost eight straight games. Despite his team's struggles, Brand his still confident that the Clippers can make a push in the Western Conference playoff race. "This trip was terrible but we still have a shot," Brand said. "We have to play harder. We have to give it all we got."
