Suns shoot down Lakers to even series 2-2

The Suns pulled away in a rampant fourth-quarter phase to win their second straight and send the best-of-seven series back to Los Angeles tied at 2-2.

Amare Stoudemire led a balanced Phoenix attack with 21 points and Channing Frye broke through with 14 points and four three-pointers after making only 1 of 20 shots in the first three games.

Kobe Bryant sparkled with 38 points and 10 assists but the Lakers were left behind in a cloud of smoke when the Suns made three straight three-pointers to take control with an 98-89 lead in the fourth.
