The Suns having been fighting for relevancy for two months and still had to work their way out of the corner Thursday night, going through a game of 24 lead changes and 19 ties until the Clippers (39-24) missed their final four shots of the game to end their five-game win streak.
The Clippers had won 13 of their past 15 games but mismanaged clutch time, burning their last time outs on inbound plays to wind up with none for their final two plays of the game – an inbound with five seconds on the shot clock and a length-of-the-court try with two seconds remaining in the game.
“It was a gut-check game and we did everything we could to just hang in there and find a way to pull it out at the end,” Suns coach Alvin Gentry said.
