leg after crashing into the net

PHOENIX -- The son of a baseball Hall of Famer had the biggest game of his young pro basketball career, and the Dallas Mavericks probably wouldnt have won without him. Zach Cunningham Texans Jersey . Rookie Shane Larkin, son of Cincinnati Reds great Barry Larkin, scored a career-high 18 points, half of them in the final quarter, and the Mavericks held on to beat the Phoenix Suns 110-107 on Friday night. Larkin, the 18th overall draft pick out of Miami, scored six in the last 2:42, capped by a pair of free throws with 11.1 seconds left. "Sometimes you think as a rookie that you dont want to mess up," he said. "You want to play smart, you dont want to do anything that the coach is uncomfortable (with). Tonight it was, Just go play. We need you to play and we need you to play well and do the things that you can do." Larkin was forced into extra duty when starting guard Jose Calderon hurt his knee in the first half. "Its the most minutes Ive played since college," he said. Larkin made 6 of 8 shots, including two of three 3-pointers and had five assists in 26 1/2 minutes. "Thats why we drafted him," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. "We felt like he could have this kind of impact." The Suns had a last chance to tie it when Vince Carter turned it over trying to inbound the ball after a basket by Phoenix with 6.7 seconds left. But P.J. Tuckers try from the corner rimmed out, and replays showed his foot was on the line so it would have been for two points, anyway. Monta Ellis scored 24 and Dirk Nowitzki 21 for the Mavericks, who never trailed. Shawn Marion scored eight of his 16 in the third quarter for Dallas. Goran Dragic scored 28 points, and Markieff Morris added 23, including 14 in the final quarter, and grabbed 12 rebounds. Morris twin brother Marcus scored 13 for the Suns, who have lost four of five. "We need to attack the basket more and we are in kind of a shooting slump right now," coach Jeff Hornacek said. "If you get those easy ones and now, all of a sudden, you go outside and you get a few." Dallas led 104-94 after Larkins running 5-footer with 2:53 to go. Markieff Morris four-point play with 2:30 to go cut it to 103-98, but Nowitzki sank a 20-footer and it was 106-98 with 1:47 to go. Larkins two free throws put Dallas ahead 108-101 with 1:19 left, then Dragic led the Suns on a frenzied run. His driving layup, followed by his 5-footer cut the lead to 108-105 with 14.1 seconds to play. Larkins two free throws boosted it to 110-105 with 11.1 seconds to go. Dragic scored again inside to trim it to 110-107 with 6.7 seconds remaining, then Carter lost the ball and touched it again while he was trying to inbound it for a turnover giving the Suns one last chance. Dragic found Tucker for the open jumper, but it rolled around the rim and came out. "I was already celebrating," Tucker said, "because it did everything but go down." Television replays showed Tuckers foot was on 3-point line so it would not have tied the game anyway. Dallas shot out to a 23-12 lead on Nowitzkis 3-pointer and was up 44-34 after Larkins 3-pointer with 8:22 left in the half. Phoenix scored the next eight, cutting it to 44-42 on Markieff Morris length-of-the-court pass to Tucker for a layup. The Suns cut the lead to one three times in quarter, the last at 51-50 on Gerald Greens 3-pointer with 4:03 left in the half. Dallas led 58-56 at the break. The Suns briefly tied it on Dragics jumper to start the second half, then Dallas took off again. Marion and Carter each sank a 3 in a 9-2 run that gave the Mavericks their biggest lead, 84-72 with 2:28 left in the third quarter.

Montreal played uninspired hockey for the better part of three periods in their 2-1 shootout loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night. The Canadiens (9-8-2) had taken only 13 shots after two periods, many of which werent terribly difficult for Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop to deal with. Bishop made 28 saves on the night for Tampa Bay (13-5-0). "We caught ourselves chasing, we werent supporting the play, we werent supporting the puck," said Gorges. "When you do that, you just end up skating all over the place. "If you dont play with that extra grit, that intensity, jumping onto loose pucks, being first on pucks, thats what happens." Captain Brian Gionta agreed: "We had nothing, we didnt create anything." The Canadiens didnt generate much offence for the first two periods, but were kept in the game by Carey Price, who made 44 saves on the night, including six in overtime. "That was a big performance by Carey Price," said head coach Michel Therrien. "Carey gave us a chance to stick in the game." It was a gut-check for Tampa Bay, which lost Steven Stamkos on Monday. The all-star forward and league-leading scorer broke his right tibia in the Lightnings 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins. "It was obviously a tough loss whenever you lose a player like that," said Bishop after Tuesdays game. "This is a team sport and were going to move forward. The guys played great tonight. We couldve easily won this game or we couldve easily scored more goals. "Carey Price played a great game but we hung in there until the end and a big goal by Fil in the shootout." Down 1-0 going into the third, and on the back of big saves by Price, Montreal found some momentum and some of that extra grit. They blocked 15 shots and scored once on 13 shots in the third period. Briere was credited with the equalizer at 15:22 of the third when Max Paciorettys shot went off his thigh and in. "After the first two periods, Michel (Therrien) told us to go to the net a lot more," said Briere. "There were a lot of shots where there was nobody in front of the net. "On my goal, thats what I tried to do. I tried to go to the net. It was a good play by Pacioretty too to try to hit me like that." Briere was back in the Canadiens lineup for the first time since suffering a concussion on Oct. Julién Davenport Texans Jersey. 19. The 36-year-old, who missed 10 games, played on a line with Michael Bournival and Rene Bourque. "My performance got better as the game went on," said Briere. "In the first, Ill admit, I was a little nervous, a little disorganized. In the second, I was more comfortable. In the third, we got good scoring chances. I calmed down a little bit." Ryan Malone put Tampa Bay on the scoreboard at 5:00 of the first when he deflected an Eric Brewer shot from the point. Malone, who was shoved by Canadiens defenceman Douglas Murray seconds before Brewers shot, deflected the puck while falling to the ice. The goal was his third of the season. Montreal couldnt take advantage of three power-play opportunities in the first period. They finished the game 0 for 3 with the man advantage. The Habs, who were outshot 13-5 in the second, dodged a bullet late in the period when Radko Gudas beat Price with a shot from the point. The goal was disallowed when video replay suggested Tyler Johnson had obstructed Price on the play. After Briere tied the game, Montreal took a minor penalty late in the period, and another early in overtime, but Tampa Bay couldnt beat Price on the power play. Valtteri Filppula scored the only goal in the shootout. "We didnt compete hard enough to get success for two periods," said Therrien. "To be able to score some goals, you have to compete. This is not what we did, honestly. We created some momentum in the third because we had some urgency, but Im not impressed." Tampa Bay was without leading goal-scorer Steven Stamkos, who broke his right leg after crashing into the net against the Bruins on Monday. Stamkos underwent surgery Tuesday afternoon and is expected to miss several months of play. Rookie J.T. Brown, who was recalled from Syracuse (AHL) after Stamkos injury, recorded one shot in 14:37 of ice time. Brown played five NHL games with the Lightning in 2012. Notes: The Canadiens have only won once in their last six games. They beat the New York Islanders 4-2 on Sunday. a David Desharnais and George Parros were both healthy scratches. a Defender Alexei Emelin, who has yet to play this season, is expected to dress over the weekend.
