Hot at home, Suns tire out exhausted Washington

December 21, 2009|By Sports Digest

Steve Nash had 15 points and 15 assists before sitting out the fourth quarter Saturday night in a 121-95 rout of the Washington Wizards that pushed the Phoenix Suns to 10-0 at home. Amare Stoudemire had 23 points and 14 rebounds and Jason Richardson scored 22, as the Suns remained the only team in the NBA without a home loss. Gilbert Arenas, who had 45 points and 13 assists as the Wizards ended a six-game losing streak with a win at Golden State on Friday, scored 22 in 23 minutes but made just six of 21 shots. Phoenix shot 52 percent to 36 percent for the Wizards. "Everybody was trying to carry it over," Washington's Nick Young said of the team's play the previous night, "but it's tough to play back-to-back fast-break games." Young had 20 points and Antawn Jamison 15 for Washington, which finished its West Coast swing with a 1-3 record.
