PHOENIX - When the Phoenix Suns big lead was fading away fast in the fourth quarter, P. Custom Golden State Warriors Jerseys .J. Tucker put a stop to the collapse.The Suns forward, not usually a big part of the high-scoring teams offence, scored 10 of his 12 points and grabbed seven of his 10 rebounds in the fourth quarter to help Phoenix hold on for a 106-98 victory over the worn-out Washington Wizards on Wednesday night.P.J. doesnt get a lot of opportunities, Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. But late in the games, he really gets tuned in.Goran Dragic scored 20 points to lead five Phoenix players in double figures.The Wizards trailed by 22 in the first half and 18 early in the fourth quarter before twice cutting it to four.It was our fourth game in five nights and we were playing teams that were pretty fast, Washingtons John Wall said, Denver and L.A. and now them, so it was tough. Im not looking for excuses but we definitely didnt have the same energy as we usually do.The Wizards Otto Porter scored eight consecutive points to slice the lead to 101-97 with 1:17 left, but Markieff Morris high-arching 15-footer with 23.9 seconds to go put Phoenix up 103-97.But it was Tucker from long-range and on the boards that pulled this one out.He drilled two big 3s to extend the lead back out there, Hornacek said, and then P.J. does what he usually does — gets big rebounds at the end of games.Phoenix, which hadnt played since Sunday, improved to 5-2 with one to go in its franchise-record eight-game home stand.Isaiah Thomas had 18 and Morris 16 for the Suns.Porter and Marcin Gortat scored 14 each for the Wizards.Washingtons standout backcourt of Wall and Bradley Beal were a combined 10-for-31 shooting. Beal was 5 of 15 for 13 points. Wall, who tweaked his ankle the previous night against the Lakers and has been bothered by migraines, missed his first five shots and finished 5 for 16 for 11 points.Brandan Wright scored 13, his most since coming to Phoenix.We let our inefficiency from an offensive standpoint drain our energy in the first half, Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. You cant do that — missing some easy layups, missing some easy shots. It just kind of sucked the energy out of us.Washington scored the first seven of the second half, then later mounted a 9-0 run to cut it to 62-57 on Paul Pierces driving layup with 6:39 left in the third.Consecutive 3s by Dragic, Thomas and Marcus Morris restored the lead to 76-59 and the Suns were up 80-66 after three.A lineup entirely made up of Washington reserves went on a 17-3 run to cut the lead to 91-87 with 6:58 left. The Suns scored the next eight, four by Tucker, to go up 99-87, but Porters scoring binge made it close one last time.They had their bench come off with some energy, some unexpected energy, Tucker said. But you expect them to make a run. In those type of games, when theyre making runs you got to get offensive rebounds and make sure you secure defensive rebounds and make free throws.The Suns swept the season series from Washington for the sixth time in eight seasons.TECHNICAL ADJUSTMENTCoach Jeff Hornacek has softened his no-technical policy. Trying to eliminate the flurry of technical fouls his players draw, he decided to bench anyone who got one for the rest of that game. Dragic and Markieff Morris did and sat as Phoenix lost the last two. Now the benching is at Hornaceks discretion. He wants the players to police each other.TIP-INSWizards: Nene sat out the game with a sore right foot. ... Paul Pierce returned after missing the Lakers game with a sore right big toe. ... Washington is 8-4 in the second of back-to-back games.Suns: Phoenix is 15-6 since going with a starting lineup of Bledsoe, Dragic, P.J. Tucker, Markieff Morris and Alex Len at Charlotte on Dec. 17. ... Suns are 8-1 when playing on two days rest. ... Suns practiced at owner Robert Sarvers house when US Airways Center was being used for Super Bowl media day on Tuesday.UP NEXTWizards: Return home to meet Raptors on Saturday.Suns: Conclude eight-game homestand against Bulls on Friday. Kevin Durant Jersey . - Free agent defensive end Will Smith has signed with the New England Patriots. Klay Thompson Jersey . Ricciardo made it only halfway around the Jerez track before his RB10 rolled to a stop and began spouting smoke from the back. After team mechanics tended to the car, Ricciardo went back out for a mere two trips around the circuit before calling it quits. . Pressley missed all of last season with Cincinnati because of a knee injury, but the 5-foot-10, 249-pounder had been expected to fill a need on Clevelands roster.CHICAGO - Soldier Field was mostly empty when the final few seconds ticked off. The Chicago Bears trudged off the field and into a morose locker room, while the New Orleans Saints went in search of a playoff berth.For Jay Cutler and the Bears, it just keeps getting worse.Cutler threw three interceptions and was sacked seven times in Chicagos 31-15 loss to New Orleans on Monday night. The Bears gained 159 of their 278 yards and scored both of their touchdowns in the final period, long after the Saints had grabbed control of a rainy matchup of underachieving teams.This is not a good feeling. Its not easy to go out here and lose the way were losing and be in these situations that were in, left tackle Jermon Bushrod said, before pausing for a couple seconds. Its not easy. We just have to find a way to get through it.The last-place Bears (5-9) have lost three in a row and six of eight. They have been outscored 106-60 the last three weeks, dropping each of those games by at least 13 points.Its certainly been three disappointing weeks and tonight was no different, coach Marc Trestman said. I thought defensively our guys really gave everything they had tonight. They were just on the field too long.Drew Brees was 29 for 36 for 375 yards and three touchdowns, helping New Orleans (6-8) grab sole possession of first place in the woeful NFC South. Carolina (5-8-1) drops to second, and Atlanta (5-9) is in third.The Saints finish the season with a home game against the Falcons and a visit to lowly Tampa Bay (2-12).The tendency after success is to relax, and its not time to relax, Brees said.New Orleans was coming off a 41-10 home loss to Carolina and had one of the worst defences in the league entering the weekend, but it was working on a shutout before Cutler threw a 1-yard pass to Marquess Wilson with 12:47 remaining for the second-year receivers first NFL touchdown. He also found Alshon Jeffery for a 7-yard touchdown with 30 seconds left in the game.They had a good plan, Cutler said during a brief postgame press conference. They mixed it up against us pretty well.Chicago had just six first downs and 119 yards after three quarters. David Hawthorne finished with three sacks for New Orleans, and Pierre Warren had two of the Saints three interceptions. Zaza Pachulia Jersey. .I thought we did a real good job, New Orleans coach Sean Payton said, praising his defence. We forced some turnovers. I thought we got the pressure weve been looking for. I thought our third-down defence was much improved.The Saints went ahead in the second quarter after wasting several opportunities in the opening period. Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller was called for a 17-yard pass-interference penalty trying to defend Jimmy Graham, setting up New Orleans with a first down at the 8.Brees then rolled to his right on the first play of the second quarter and found an open Josh Hill, who lunged across the goal line for an 8-yard touchdown.The first half was so bad for Chicago that its best play might have been Patrick ODonnells 56-yard punt that went out of bounds at the New Orleans 5 with about four minutes left in the second. But the Saints responded with a 10-play, 95-yard drive.Brees threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Marques Colston with 38 seconds left, giving the Saints a 14-0 lead.I think we responded well as a team, Brees said. We were embarrassed about what happened last week.It also was an embarrassing week for the Bears after offensive co-ordinator Aaron Kromer admitted Friday that he asked for the forgiveness of players and other coaches Monday while apologizing to them for remarks he made to an NFL Network reporter that were critical of Cutler and the offence.But offensive tackle Jordan Mills said the situation with the coaching staff had no effect on the Bears play in the game.People make mistakes. Were not perfect, Mills said. That had nothing to do with our focus this week.NOTES: Bears kicker Robbie Gould was inactive with a right quadriceps injury, leaving the kicking duties to Jay Feely for the second straight week. Safety Chris Conte and offensive lineman Michael Ola missed the game because of back injuries. ... Saints LT Terron Armstead (neck) started and LB Junior Galette (knee) played after they were listed as questionable.___Online:AP NFL websites: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
