Phoenix Suns earn a victory without Nash

Phoenix Suns were good enough to defeat Portland even when their most important player, Steve Nash, was not fit for the game. The score was 109-102, and Leandro Barbosa and Amare Stoudemire scoring all 13 Suns points in overtime.

In fact, Stoudemire notched 36 points and nine rebounds overall, while Barbosa netted 25 points and had seven assists and six rebounds.

We must notice that Phoenix has now won three of four, and cruised to their sixth straight victory over the Trail Blazers.

According to the report, Raja Bell had 15 points and six assists, while Shawn Marion donated 12 points and got 13 rebounds.

Finally, Zach Randolph recorded his 29th double-double of the season with 33 points and 10 rebounds, only nine points and four rebounds of that total coming in the first half. In fact, Brandon Roy poured in 27 points in the loss, Portland's third straight. IN the end it was a good victory.

Lakers defeat Hawks with Bryant's 27

The most important basketball player in Los Angeles had another productive night. Bryant netted 11 of his 27 points in the final quarter Monday as the Los Angeles Lakers posted a 90-83 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

What's more, Lamar Odom added 15 points and 18 rebounds for the Lakers, who have won three of their last four games. Andrew Bynum had 14 points and 10 rebounds for the yellow team of Los Angeles.

In the other hand, Josh Smith had 20 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for the Hawks, who had won three of their previous four games. Joe Johnson was high scorer for the Hawks with 27 points, but hit just 10-of-26 from the floor.

Just when two Zaza Pachulia free throws pulled Atlanta within 68-65, the Lakers used a 12-7 run to open up a 80-72 lead with 4:24 left in the fourth quarter. Kobe scored nine straight points during that stretch. An impressive mark.
