LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Amare Stoudemire and the Phoenix Suns burned the Los Angeles Clippers for a second straight night.

Stoudemire had 42 points and 11 rebounds, shooting 15-for-20 from the field and leading the Suns to a 142-119 rout of the Clippers on Wednesday night.

Steve Nash had 21 points and 12 assists for the rejuvenated Suns, who played their second game under interim head coach Alvin Gentry and are back to their old ways of up-tempo basketball following Monday's firing of Terry Porter.

Shaquille O'Neal had 16 points and six rebounds, helping complete a four-game sweep of the season series. Grant Hill played 21 scoreless minutes while shooting 0-for-5.
