After being totally outclassed in the first two games of the series in LA, Phoenix responded by taking two straight in the desert. The Suns built on a 42-point, 11-rebound effort from Amare Stoudemire in Game 3 and Channing Frye broke out of his shooting slump and scored 14 points on Tuesday, as the Suns used strong bench play to even the set with a 115-106 Game 4 win.
