NBA: SUNS EDGE LAKERS
The Phoenix Suns rained in three-pointers from all angles to secure a 115-106 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, levelling their Western Conference finals series and re-igniting their title hopes on Tuesday.
The Suns pulled away in a rampant fourth-quarter run to win their second straight game against the defending NBA champions and send the best-of-seven series back to Los Angeles at 2-2.
Amare Stoudemire led a balanced Phoenix attack with 21 points and Channing Frye broke through with 14 points, including four three-pointers, after making only 1-of-20 shots in the first three games.
'I believe that every night (I will shoot well). I put in the time and my team mates believe in me,' Frye told reporters having sparked his team and a frenzied home crowd with three long-range shots in the second quarter.
'I have to thank team mates and coaches for believing in me. I take pride in wearing the Suns uniform.'
