Barbosa's 27 points lift Suns past GrizzliesPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -- Leandro Barbosa scored 16 of his team-high 27 points in the fourth quarter, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 43.8 seconds left as the Phoenix Suns rallied to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 107-102 Monday night.
The Grizzlies had rallied from a 17-point third-quarter deficit and led 102-100 on Rudy Gay's dunk off an offensive rebound with 1:30 remaining.
But Barbosa sank his second 3-pointer of the game to give Phoenix a 103-102 lead.
After a pair of Steve Nash free throws, O.J. Mayo missed a straightaway 3-pointer with 6.9 seconds to allow Phoenix to escape with its ninth straight win over Memphis.
