|Stoudemire Leads "Los Suns" Over Spurs
|PHOENIX (AP) -- Los Suns ganaron. That means the Suns won.
Amare Stoudemire had 23 points and 11 rebounds, Channing Frye made 5 of 6 3-pointers, and Phoenix, wearing its orange "Los Suns" jerseys in part to protest Arizona's new anti-immigration law, pulled away for a 110-102 victory over the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night, taking a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinals.
Steve Nash and Jason Richardson scored 19 apiece and Grant Hill added 18 in a grind-it-out game played at the Spurs' pace until the Suns started hitting 3-pointers. After starting 1 of 7 from long range Phoenix made eight of its next 12.
Tim Duncan had 29 points and 10 rebounds and Tony Parker added 20 points for the Spurs.
The best-of-seven series shifts to San Antonio for Game 3 on Friday night.
