PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns were worn out from an overtime victory in Denver the previous night. Larry Johnson Jersey . The Boston Celtics hadnt played since the All-Star break. So the Suns 100-94 victory over Boston Wednesday night was an uphill affair, with Phoenix relying on balance rather than its trademark high energy. Six Phoenix players hit double figures, led by Markieff Morris 18. Goran Dragic and Gerald Green added 17 points apiece for Phoenix. Channing Frye had 15, among them a crucial 3-pointer with 1:20 left. Markieffs twin brother, Marcus, scored 10 of his 11 in the second half, including a 32-footer at the third-quarter buzzer. P.J.

Phoenix made four of six free throws to make it 92-86, then Gerald Wallaces two free throws sliced the lead to 92-88.

Dragic missed a reverse layup and Boston got the ball with 23 seconds to go. But rather than try for a game-tying 3, the Celtics went for two.

The Celtics outscored Phoenix 16-4 to start the second half to lead 66-56, but the Suns got the last dozen of the quarter, capped by Marcus Morris long one at the buzzer.

Nicolas Batum Jersey .ca has you covered for whos in, whos out and what to expect from all 30 teams. http://www.basketballhornetsauthority.com/kemba-walker-hornets-jersey-c-2/ . Dragic was a game-time decision because of a sore right ankle that had kept him out of Wednesdays loss at Utah, but played all but the last 10 seconds of the second half in the first 40-point game for a Phoenix player since Amare Stoudemires 44 on March 19, 2010. MULHOUSE, France -- On a day local Roman Catholics were celebrating the feast of Saint Anthony, two other Tonys had their own reason to celebrate in the Tour de France. Germanys Tony Martin took the stage win Sunday, and Frances Tony Gallopin took the yellow jersey during an up-and-down Stage 9 in the eastern Vosges mountains. Martin, a three-time world champion known more for time-trial dominance, showed that he could climb too; Italys Vincenzo Nibali, who has been wearing the leaders yellow jersey, didnt lay a hard enough chase of Gallopin to keep it. French media -- delighted to see the countrys first yellow jersey holder since Thomas Voeckler wore it in 2010 -- reveled in the fact that Gallopin will lead Frances most beloved race on the Bastille Day holiday Monday. The 29-year-old German, meanwhile, said his stage victory might have been an "omen" for Germanys World Cup ambitions against Argentina -- which it turned out to be. Gallopin, of the Lotto Belisol team, said hed been plotting a move for the yellow jersey since Stage 5 -- when he positioned himself for a challenge because Nibali was unlikely to want to hold it all the way to Paris on July 27, when the race ends. Its a lot of pressure to try to carry the leaders shirt so long, through the Alps and Pyrenees ahead. But Nibali knows that Gallopin is unlikely to make it up the big climbs ahead, and the Italian didnt lose any time against his biggest rivals -- highest among them, two-time Tour champion Alberto Contador. Gallopin, by finishing about 5 minutes ahead of Nibali, easily erased his deficit to the Italian and now leads him by 1:34. Portuguese rider Tiago Machado is third overall, 4:08 back. But, like Gallopin, he is not considered a Tour contender. "Its with great pride that I will ride on the national holiday day in the yellow jersey," said 26-year-old Gallopin, adding that he feared he may not keep it after an uphill finish at the super-steep Planche dees Belles Filles on Monday. Frank Kaminsky Jersey. "Its a little bit scary, but I will enjoy the day." "It was always a dream of wearing the yellow jersey," said Gallopin, who finished 2:45 back of solo breakaway leader Martin. Contador finished safely in the main pack along with Nibali and is 4:08 back in ninth place overall. They will resume their contest in the toughest stage so far -- Mondays 161.5-kilometre (100-mile) trek from Mulhouse to the famed La Planche des Belles Filles, featuring four steep Category 1 climbs. The pack takes its first rest day on Tuesday. "It was a tough day," Contador said, looking ahead to Monday. "Well have to decide whether or not we try to attack or ride defensively." The Tour paid tribute to those who died in the First World War -- 1914-18 -- by riding along the battlefields where millions died. Sundays route took the peloton past a landmark remembering the Battle du Linge in 1915, where some 17,000 French and German soldiers fell in three ferocious months of fighting. The groves and thickets in Le Linges mountainous pass helped mask lethal sections of barbed wire protecting tight German defensive lines. Shortly before the days most difficult climb -- a Category 1 ascent of 10.8 kilometres (6.7 miles) up Le Markstein -- Martin broke away, and Gallopins chasing group was about two minutes behind with Nibali more than six minutes adrift. Martin, some 18.5 minutes back, was no threat to Nibalis yellow jersey. Nibali lost more and more ground, and urged his Astana teammates to step up the pace as they reached the last of the climbs -- a short, sharp ascent up Grand Ballon. But they left themselves with far too much to do. Martin, who narrowly beat Tour champion Chris Froome in a time trial last year, continued to surge ahead, with tail winds making for a quick descent down to the finish. The departure of Froome in Stage 5 due to injury has blown the race wide open.
