Nash powers Suns past Mavericks

Steve Nash finished with 19 points and 11 assists while Amare Stoudemire scored 22 points to lead the Phoenix Suns to a 112-106 win over Dallas on Thursday.
"We needed this win because we have been down," Nash said. "In sports and in life when you have confidence you have got a chance. We had an attitude and a spirit about us tonight. Our energy was fantastic."
Jason Richardson added 17 points for the Suns who ended a two game losing streak and a three game skid against Dallas. Phoenix also got help from its bench as Goran Dragic scored 13 points and Louis Amundson finished with 12.
"We hung in there and we scrapped," added Nash.
Stoudemire started quickly scoring all his points in the first three quarters before spending the entire fourth quarter on the bench.
Jason Terry scored 21 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 19 points as all five Dallas' starters finished in double figures.
