Nash and Suns outlast 76ers 119-115

JASON Richardson scored 29 points, while Steve Nash added 21 points and tied his season-high with 20 assists as the visiting Phoenix Suns beat the Philadelphia 76ers 119-115 last night.

The Suns eclipsed the 100-point barrier for the eighth straight game to open a season, which hadn't happened since the 1990-91 season.

Jared Dudley contributed 18, Amare Stoudemire added 17, Grant Hill had 11 and Channing Frye 10 for the high-flying Suns, who entered the game averaging a league-high 109.7 points per game.

Phoenix, which hit 15-of-30 3-pointers, has won three straight and finished its five-game road trip with four wins and a loss.

Andre Iguodala scored 24 points, Marreese Speights added 20, Thaddeus Young had 15 and Lou Williams 13 for the Sixers.

Spurs 131, Raptors 124

At San Antonio, Manu Ginobili scored 36 points without Tim Duncan and Tony Parker in the lineup as the Spurs beat the Toronto Raptors.

Ginobili hit four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter as the Spurs fired despite their two leading scorers being sidelined with ankle injuries.

Richard Jefferson had 24 and George Hill added 22 for San Antonio.

Chris Bosh had 32 points and nine rebounds for Toronto, but his third 30-point game of the season wasn't enough after another soft defensive game for the Raptors.

Jazz 95, Knicks 93

At New York, Carlos Boozer and Andrei Kirilenko each scored 23 points as the Jazz won at Madison Square Garden for the first time in more than five years by beating the Knicks.

Mehmet Okur had the go-ahead basket with 1:16 to play and finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Jazz, who opened a difficult four-game road trip by winning in New York for the first time since Feb. 20, 2004.

Deron Williams was limited to five points but had 16 assists. Utah, which earned its first road victory of the season, visits Boston next and wraps up the trip Saturday night at Cleveland.

Rookie Toney Douglas scored a season-high 21 points for the Knicks, who nearly dug their way out of another huge deficit with a big fourth-quarter rally. But he missed just before the buzzer, sending New York to its fourth straight loss.
