Nash comes to rescue as Suns rally past Clippers


Nash comes to rescue as Suns rally past ClippersLOS ANGELES (AP) - Mike D'Antoni is gone to the New York Knicks, yet some of the Phoenix Suns are still playing as if he's coaching them.

Steve Nash scored 15 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, when he rallied the Suns to a 109-107 season-opening victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.

Grant Hill had 19 points and 13 rebounds, Leandro Barbosa added 17 points, Amare Stoudemire 16 and Channing Frye 12 for the Suns, who won their fifth in a row over the Clippers after a four-game sweep last season.

"Primarily because this was our first game of the season and we're really not sure how good we can be yet, it was just a big win for our confidence," Nash said. "We won it with some timely execution and a few stops."
