National Basketball Association Playoff Game Capsules
(Tuesday, May 25th)
Final Score: Phoenix 115, LA Lakers 106

Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Channing Frye broke out of his shooting slump and scored 14 points, as the Phoenix Suns used strong bench play to even the Western Conference finals with a 115-106 Game 4 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at US Airways Center. The Suns were dominated in the first two games at the Staples Center, but rallied behind a 42-point, 11-rebound effort from Amare Stoudemire in a 118-109 victory Sunday night. Stoudemire had 21 points and eight rebounds Tuesday, while Steve Nash contributed 15 points and eight assists. Frye came into the game 1-for-20 in the series and had missed his last 17 shots until knocking down a three-pointer midway through the second quarter. He went 4-of-8 from long distance and Phoenix's reserves outscored the Los Angeles bench players, 54-20. Leandro Barbosa had half of his 14 points in the last quarter. Jared Dudley added 11 points, while Goran Dragic contributed eight points and eight assists for the Phoenix reserves. Phoenix's bench players accounted for all the points during a 14-2 run in the fourth quarter, turning a two-point deficit into a 10-point cushion with just over five minutes left. Kobe Bryant went 6-of-9 from beyond the arc, on the way to 38 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds for the Lakers. Lamar Odom had 15 points and 10 rebounds off the bench, while starter Pau Gasol also scored 15, but the Lakers lost the battle of the boards by a 51-36 count. Game 5 is Thursday in Los Angeles.
