Suns Steal Game 1 In Dallas

DALLAS (AP) _ Boris Diaw hit a short turnaround jumper with five-tenths of a second left as the Phoenix Suns took Game One of the Western Conference Finals 121-118 at Dallas.

Diaw's go-ahead basket came after Devin Harris drained a 16-footer that put the Mavericks up 118-117. But Diaw pushed the Suns ahead with the last of his game-high 34 points before Tim Thomas added a pair of free throws with two-tenths of a second remaining.

Steve Nash had 16 assists, the most by anyone this postseason. Nash also contributed 27 points, including ten straight just before he fed Shawn Marion on a go-ahead dunk in the final minute.

Marion finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds while Thomas added 17 points.

Harris paced the Mavericks with 30 points while Dirk Nowitzki added 25 and 19 rebounds.

Game Two is Friday at Dallas.
