Rudy Gay's hitter gives Spurs to win the Sols

SAN ANTONIO: The player of San Antonio Spurs moved to Rudy Gay after his victory won by the match against Phoenix, but this celebration reached a cool dose of reality once they touched the dressing room.

Gay got a 21-foot jump to the buzzer and the Spurs surpassed Devin Booker's 38 points to escape with a 126-124 victory over Tuesday night, spreading the streak of solos to nine games.

"He is very fortunate to win the game," coach of San Antonio, Gregg Popovich, said. "I thought they were stumbling, they made us out, they did us physically, they did not take us into account, we had no respect for them or for the game. We did not play, it was a pathetic performance and Phoenix was stolen."

The Suns lost their four previous games in an average of 23 points and were without a scorer, Deandre Ayton, but the Spurs needed a clutch shot at the bell to win.

"It's a victory," Gay said. "I'm not happy with how it happened, but we have won. This is part of being a good team: you have to find ways to win."

LaMarcus Aldridge got 29 points and 14 rebounds for San Antonio, which is 2-0 in a four-game match, despite playing without hurt DeMar DeRozan. Gay finished with 16 points, five rebounds and five assists.

The Suns lost their eleventh defeat to San Antonio, even when Booker equalized their season at high points.

"Shoot down again consecutively and lose three or four of the party winners, you have to be locked in the game," Booker said. "It's not just the final shot".

Phoenix tied it with 19.6 seconds remaining. Booker steals Marco Belinelli's step and fed Josh Jackson for an unquestionable fact that made 124.

With the passing of time, Gay was isolated and he was knocked out by a bridge over Kelly Oubre Jr. to the left, as the watch expired to help San Antonio avoid anxiety.

"Salute Rudy for doing it," Oubre said.

The Spurs entered allowing 109.7 points per game, 13 in the NBA, but struggled to contain the Suns. Phoenix had six players in double figures, including 22 points from Jamal Crawford.

"We are not as physical as we were when we were playing well," said San Antonio defender, Derrick White, who had 15 points. "We have moments when we are doing the right things but we have not been consistent with that."

The Suns were 13 for 29 in 3 points and shot 60 percent of the field to turn a 12-point deficit into the third quarter in a close victory.

San Antonio was 14-2 that began in the middle of the third position with an advantage of 94-82. Phoenix played up to 96-95 in the fourth position, 106-105 in the middle of the period and 119-118, with two remaining minutes.

"We just resisted the storm," Crawford said. "They launched some of our hay makers and they did not fold, we showed growth and went ahead. We gave ourselves an opportunity, that's all you can ask for."

The Spurs ended up with seven players in double figures, including all the headlines. Davis Bertans scored 18 points and Belinelli scored 17 off the bench.


Suns: The last victory from Phoenix to San Antonio was on February 27, 2013, when Jermaine O & # 39; Neal scored 22 points on the bench in a 105-101 victory. … Ayton lost his sixth consecutive game with a left skeleton.

Spurs: DeRozan has seated the third consecutive game with a left knee. There have been four games missing this season, all in the last two weeks. … Belinelli was 4 for 7 in 3 points to reach 1,100 races 3 in his 12th season. … Aldridge has 17,968 career points, moving to World B. Free, Calvin Murphy and Lou Hudson and the first 75 scorers in NBA history.


Bertans was not invited to participate in the 3-point draws contest during the weekend of all the stars despite leading the league in a percentage of 3 points.

This confuses your teammates.

"I think he's one of the best 3 point shooters in the league," Gay said. "I do not know why he is not in the 3-point contest."


Phoenix has three days off before playing in Atlanta. The Suns seek their first win since January 12.

"At this point, everyone has made some effort," Crawford said. "It may be good to move away from him for a day and do it again."


Alone: ​​host Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night.

Spurs: It houses the Brooklyn Nets this Thursday night.
