PHOENIX -- Amare Stoudemire scored 29 points and the Suns dominated San Antonio most of the night Wednesday in a 112-101 victory in Phoenix.

That snapped the Spurs' four-game winning streak and kept the Suns tied for second in the Western Conference with four games to play.

Jason Richardson scored 20 and Steve Nash had 16 points and 12 assists in Phoenix's 11th victory in 12 games. Neither played in the fourth quarter, when Goran Dragic was at the controls while the Suns fought off a rally to pull away and lead by as many as 17.

Roger Mason led six Spurs in double figures with 18 points. Richard Jefferson added 17.

Manu Ginobili, who had averaged 22.5 points since the All-Star break, scored 10 on 5-of-14 shooting, 0 of 5 on 3-pointers.
