Phoenix Suns Escape Milwaukee Bucks On Steve Nash Hero Shot, 107-105

More: Nash hits game winner on birthday

The Phoenix Suns went into Milwaukee and avenged the Arizona Diamondbacks playoff loss to the Brewers. It wasn't easy but it sure was fun as the Suns put up a great first half and had a 21-point lead but then needed some last-second heroics from Steve Nash, on his birthday, to get the win over the Bucks. The victory marks the first time this season the Suns have won three-straight.

The Suns built the big lead with a super strong performance from Michael Redd off the bench who dropped 10 points on his former team and lead the Suns to a 33-20 second quarter. The 67 points the Suns had at the half was a season-high.

But the Bucks don't quit. This team was down 18 to the Miami Heat recently and won that game and they used strong defense and three-point shooting to come all the way back to take a lead in the fourth quarter. That set up a thrilling back and forth finish.

With the game tied, Steve Nash ran the pick and roll and took the lane to the paint and finished a lay up with five ticks on the clock.

The Suns had six players in double-digits will Redd joining all five starters. Gortat's 21 paced the field with Nash adding 18 points and 11 assists.

The boys come home for a game Thursday against the Houston Rockets.
