Despite Missing Nash, Suns Stun Clippers

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Shannon Brown scored a season-high 21 points, including four free throws in the final 1:33, and the short-handed Phoenix Suns beat the Los Angeles Clippers 91-87 on Thursday night to end a four-game road losing streak.

With the Suns playing the middle game in a stretch of three in as three nights, coach Alvin Gentry had Steve Nash and Grant Hill both sit out in street clothes.

Channing Frye had 12 points for Phoenix and Jared Dudley added 11 points and six rebounds. Sebastian Telfair, filling in for Nash at point guard, had seven points, eight assists and a critical steal of Chris Paul in the final seconds in his first start since Nov. 22, 2010, with Minnesota.

Blake Griffin had 25 points and eight rebounds for the Clippers.
