INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 4 (AP) -- Amare Stoudemire scored 42 points to lead the Phoenix Suns to a 121-117 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night.

Stoudemire shot 15-for-24 from the field and 12-for-13 from the free throw line. He also had 13 rebounds.

Steve Nash had 18 points and 17 assists, and Shawn Marion added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Suns (14-4), who have won three straight.

Jermaine O'Neal scored a season-high 30 points on 14-for-20 shooting for the Pacers (9-10). Mike Dunleavy scored 22 points and Jamaal Tinsley had 19 points and 12 assists for Indiana.

It was Phoenix's fifth straight win in the series.

Nash made two free throws with 1:11 left to cut Indiana's lead to 117-115, then made a 3-pointer with 42 seconds left to give the Suns a 118-117 lead.

Tinsley missed a spinning shot in close, and the Suns rebounded. With the shot clock winding down, Stoudemire's mid-range shot bounced up, then in with 6.5 seconds remaining to give the Suns a 120-117 advantage.

Indiana's Danny Granger missed a 3-pointer that could have tied the game, and the Suns rebounded to clinch the win.

Stoudemire scored 23 points to help the Suns take a 69-64 lead at halftime. The Suns led 66-51 in the second quarter, but the Pacers closed the half on a 13-3 run.

Phoenix led 96-90 at the end of the third quarter after leading by 12 points midway through the period.

Notes: Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said F Ike Diogu should be back in a few weeks. Diogu played only the first three games this season before tearing a calf muscle in his left leg. ... O'Neal is averaging 20.7 points and 12 rebounds in three games since he came back from knee and shoulder injuries. ... The Pacers were called for two technical fouls late in the third quarter - one on David Harrison and one for defensive 3 seconds. ... Stoudemire notched his third consecutive double-double. ... Tinsley has posted 10 or more assists in eight of his last 10 games.

well theres always posts after the Wins, so why not after all those losses? I didn't post this to upset anyone, but if you're going to post recaps after every win, do it for the losses too.

1) luv the bottom of your sig
2) i agree, we've shown some great signs, but how come we lost to the Sonics? It's these stupid mental letdowns that keep us from getting to the next level
3) i agree, can't wait to have diogu back, harrison got a technical against the Suns for breathing

if we can just make playoffs, i like our chances against every team except boston.
we know how to play with top teams, we have a good mix of veterans and youth.
if we can get the right match ups, for example finish 7th and aviod boston, we could go further then expected.

but first we have to make playoffs.
