Suns beat Thunder; Stoudemire injured

Oct 24, 2008 - 4:56 AM PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Amare Stoudemire scored 17 points before suffering a dislocated left pinky with just under four minutes left in the third quarter as the Phoenix Suns defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder, 102-93, on Thursday.

Reserve Leandro Barbosa and Steve Nash scored 15 points apiece for Phoenix in a sloppy contest that saw each team commit 23 turnovers.

The injury to Stoudemire does not seem to be serious and, according to coach Terry Porter, the All-Star would have stayed in the game had it been a regular-season contest.

The Thunder were led by Russell Westbrook's 22 points and six rebounds, but the rookie point guard dished out only four assists compared to eight turnovers.

Kevin Durant scored 19 points and Johan Petro added 17 for the Thunder, who fell to 1-5 in the preseason.

Oklahoma City concludes its exhibition schedule Friday at the Los Angeles Lakers before opening the season Wednesday when it hosts Milwaukee.

Phoenix finished its preseason slate with a 5-3 record and opens the regular season Wednesday in San Antonio.
