Amare Stoudemire had 36 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 blocked shots and the Suns won their third in a row while snapping Golden State's three-game winning streak with a 123-115 victory last night in Phoenix.
Steve Nash had 21 points - including 8 in a row in a big fourth-quarter stretch - and 13 assists. Raja Bell had 18 points, Boris Diaw 16, and Leandro Barbosa 14. Nash and Bell both were 4 of 6 on 3-pointers. The Suns made 12 of 24 threes, 7 of 12 in the second half.
Baron Davis scored 38 points, 2 shy of his career high, for the Warriors. Golden State had won three straight against Phoenix.
The Suns improved to 6-6 since Shaquille O'Neal joined their lineup. O'Neal was in foul trouble most of the night, playing just 15 minutes. He had 9 points and four rebounds.
Wizards 101, Cavaliers 99 - Caron Butler unleashed a month's worth of pent-up energy on his 28th birthday, returning to host Washington's lineup after a 16-game injury absence to score 19 points.
Butler, whose hip injury sent the Wizards into a February slump, scored the game's opening basket, survived some rough contact, and made six of his first eight shots.
Vogue cover boy LeBron James (25 points) turned in a spotty performance. James was called for an offensive foul in the final 20 seconds and his potential game-winning 27-footer hit the front of the rim and bounced away as time expired.
Kings 96, Trail Blazers 85 - Ron Artest scored 20 points and host Sacramento never trailed in defeating Portland.
