Suns Beat Kings in a Shootout

By  | 

PHOENIX (AP) - Channing Frye scored 29 points, Amare Stoudemire
had 26, and the fast-moving Phoenix Suns overcame the losses of
Steve Nash and Grant Hill to beat the Sacramento Kings 143-127 on
Tuesday night in their final home preseason game.

Nash left in the second half with an injured right ankle and Hill was ejected after getting two technical fouls for arguing with the officials.

The Suns, who broke open the game with a 42-point third quarter, hit a remarkable 51 of 56 free throws in the foul-plagued game. Thirty-six personals were called against the Kings, and starters Kevin Martin and Jason Thompson fouled out

Frye, the Suns' new starting center following the trade of Shaquille O'Neal to Cleveland, scored 16 points in the third.
