ATLANTA -- Phoenix blitzed the Atlanta Hawks early from the 3-point stripe. [url=http
ATLANTA -- Phoenix blitzed the Atlanta Hawks early from the 3-point stripe. Fabio Coentrao Jersey . Then, the Suns finished it off from long range. Eric Bledsoe scored 20 points, four teammates reached double figures and Phoenix won its fourth in a row, beating the Atlanta Hawks 102-95 on Monday night to pull even with Dallas for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Suns knocked down 12 of 24 from 3-point range, including back-to-back treys that clinched it. Bledsoe made all three of his attempts, while Channing Frye was 4-of-9 outside the arc to account for the bulk of his 18 points. Goran Dragic had 19 points, Markieff Morris 17 and Gerald Green 13. Overall, Phoenix shot 51 per cent from the field, while holding the Hawks to just under 42 per cent. "On offence, everybody was engaged, everybody was focused," Dragic said. "If you defend like that, then we can run, we hit 3s, and its much easier to play like that." Atlanta, trying to hold the eighth spot in the East, lost its third in a row after a season-high five-game winning streak. Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll led the Hawks with 19 points apiece. Jeff Teague and Lou Williams each had 17. With the score tied at 59, Phoenix took control with a 14-4 run near the end of the third quarter. Bledsoe got it started with a drive to the basket, and Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer picked up a technical foul for griping about the officiating. Bledsoe made the free throw, turning it into a three-point play. Frye took over from there, swishing three straight jumpers -- including a 3-pointer -- sandwiched around Dragic swiping an Atlanta pass and driving for a layup. The Suns closed the half on a Dragics end-to-end drive, the Slovenian guard banking in the shot with 1.5 seconds left for a 77-68 lead heading to the fourth. "I think the best thing about this team is theres no selfishness," Frye said. The Hawks got as close as four in the closing period, but Phoenix sealed the victory on consecutive 3s by Markieff Morris and Bledsoe, stretching the lead to 98-86 with 2 1/2 minutes left. "They put a lot of pressure on you early in the shot clock. They put a lot of pressure on matchup," Budenholzer said. "To beat a good team like that, youve got to play with a lot of energy in transition defence." Dragic (six assists) and Bledsoe (four) were able to blow past the Hawks defenders off the dribble, setting up shots both inside and out. "Theyve got good penetrating guards surrounded by shooters," Millsap said. "Youve got to choose your poison with them." Locked in a tight battle for playoff positioning, the Suns are trying not to worry about whats going on around them. They improved to 42-29, tied for eighth with Dallas and just a half-game behind Memphis, which also won Monday. Phoenix is within three games of Portland and Golden State as well. "Its about us," Frye said. "We have to play like were already in it." The teams were coming off contrasting performances on the road the previous day. The Suns overcame a 22-point deficit at Minnesota to win 127-120, their biggest comeback of the season. Atlanta, on the other hand, squandered an 11-point lead going to the fourth quarter at Toronto, outscored by the Raptors 36-15 over the final 12 minutes. Atlanta faded again at home, squandering a 52-44 lead early in the third. The Suns jumped ahead 11-2 in the opening minutes, setting the tone with its 3-point shooting. Dragic, Frye and Bledsoe hit three straight from outside the stripe, while the Hawks missed their first six shots. But Atlanta tightened up defensively and began hitting some shots, tying the game at 23 by late in the period. The Hawks were up 45-42 at halftime. NOTES: The Hawks played their third straight game without G Kyle Korver, who is hampered by back spasms. Budenholzer said theres no timetable for Korvers return. ... Shelvin Mack started in place of Korver. ... P.J. Tucker led the Suns with 11 rebounds. Phoenix held a 39-32 edge on the boards. ... The Suns swept the season series, following up a 129-120 victory in Phoenix three weeks earlier. Pepe Jersey . The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists detailed in a report how Russian and international journalists have been harassed and prevented from covering sensitive stories in Sochi such as the abuse of migrant workers and environmental issues. Cedric Jersey . -- Aaron Rodgers isnt out for revenge in Green Bays season opener. .Y. - OK, it is done.CORTINA DAMPEZZO, Italy - Lindsey Vonn is starting to sense this could be a special weekend.So is her family.Five of Vonns closest relatives are flying in to Italy in hopes of seeing Vonn match or possibly break Annemarie Moser-Proells all-time World Cup wins record.While boyfriend Tiger Woods isnt making the trip, Vonns father, her step mom, her mother, her step dad and her younger sister Laura will all be on hand when the racing begins Friday with a downhill — Vonns specialty.Another downhill is scheduled for Saturday, followed by a super-G on Sunday.So it will be a lot of people and hopefully a good weekend, Vonn said after leading the only training session Thursday by 0.12 seconds ahead of American teammate Julia Mancuso.It could also be emotional considering her repaired relationship with her father, Alan Kildow, who taught her to ski but from whom she was estranged while married to Thomas Vonn.On a course where she has already won seven times, Vonn needs one victory to match Austrian great Moser-Proells 62 wins set between 1970 and 1980.I got my first podium here and I have a really good understanding of the hill, Vonn said. Its like my European Lake Louise. Im hoping for some more great memories this weekend.Vonn has won 15 races in Lake Louise, Alberta, which is clearly her favourite slope. But Cortina is next on the list.Besides her seven wins on the Olympia delle Tofane course, Vonn also has seven podium finishes, including her career first in 2004.But the slope this year is different from past seasons. With so little snow having fallen in the Dolomites Range, the Tofanes terrain and jumps stand out more than usual.I skied pretty well today but I know I can ski better for the race tomorrow, said Vonn, who stood up out of her tuck at the end of her training run. Nani Jersey. I was a little bit intimidated by all the jumps and the air that were in the course today. But despite that I think I skied solid and Im really looking forward to tomorrow.Fridays race was originally scheduled for Bad Kleinkircheim, Austria, last weekend, but was postponed due to difficult weather conditions.Im really happy we have three races here, Vonn said. It gives me chances to get a few more wins, so well see.But heavy snow is forecast for the weekend, which could affect the schedule.I hope the weather will keep us surprised and happy this weekend, said overall World Cup leader Tina Maze of Slovenia, who was third in training, 0.18 behind Vonn.Maze, the only other skier besides Vonn to win a downhill this season, will likely be the Americans top challenger. She won one of the two downhills here last season while Vonn was out recuperating from a series of knee injuries.After initially tearing up her right knee in a crash at the 2013 world championships in Schladming, Austria, Vonn re-injured herself last season in France as she was attempting to return for the Sochi Olympics, which she ended up missing.My mom is actually coming here with her ticket for Sochi that she exchanged, Vonn said. I think she was one of the only people that bought that trip insurance that you can buy on Expedia.Vonn clearly wants to make it a worthwhile trip — for her family, her support team, her fans, and for herself.Im just going to try to ski my best, she said. And well see what happens.___Andrew Dampf can be followed at Cheap Jerseys 2018 China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
