INDIANAPOLIS - If you ask the Phoenix Suns about their promising start to the NBA season, coach Jeff Hornacek is optimistic while the players are focused on the long-term goal of getting back to the playoffs.After making a late-season playoff push last spring, the Phoenix Suns have picked up where they left off and are blazing their way through their first extended road trip of the season.Gerald Green scored a game-high 23 points, Isaiah Thomas scored 16 points off the bench and two other starters scored in double figures Saturday in Phoenixs 106-83 road win over Indiana. With the victory Phoenix (9-5) got its fourth straight win - all on the road during a six-game road trip.Things are looking up in the Valley of the Sun.Were getting a little bit of a rhythm, Hornacek said. Its something about being on the road. These guys have come together and everybody is contributing.The Suns improved their road record to 5-2 this season and remain one of the leagues highest-scoring teams. And it was their ability to score in bunches that allowed the Suns to seize control against the Pacers.Green, going against his former team, caught fire with three minutes left in the first quarter and stayed hot until he took himself out with seven minutes left in the half. In that stretch, Green dumped 18 points on the Pacers and helped the Suns maintain a lead that they took into the half (55-48).Hes among the group inside the organization that feels the team has turned the corner with Hornacek at the helm. But that group also says last seasons late run and this seasons early success only will be meaningful if the Suns can be consistent over the course of an 82-game schedule.Were potentially a 48-to-50 win team, Green said. But potential doesnt mean anything if you dont prepare your potential. Right now were just trying to take it game-by-game. Just because you win four games in-a-row doesnt mean youre guaranteed to make the playoffs so were just trying to use this to build on.With the loss, the Pacers not only saw their two-game win streak end, but they lost starting centre Roy Hibbert midway through the first quarter due to a sprained left ankle. He attempted to return with 9:23 left in the first half but was unable to remain in the game. Hibbert logged just under seven minutes in the game.In his absence, Ian Mahinmi recorded 12 points and 10 rebounds but was limited in the fourth quarter because of foul trouble. The Pacers werent certain on Hibberts status immediately after the game. He had already left the arena before the game ended.Should Hibbert miss any action other than the 2 1/2 quarters he sat out Saturday, hell join fellow starters George Hill, David West and Paul George on the sidelines. Those three starters have not yet played a game for the Pacers this season.Despite relying on role players in the starting lineup because of the number of injuries, Indiana (5-8) had won four of its last five games entering Saturdays contest. Indiana was led by Rodney Stuckey, who scored 14 points off the Pacers bench. Hill scored 13 and grabbed six rebounds. Markieff Morris added 13 for Phoenix and Goran Dragic had 11.Now headed out for a two-game road trip against Dallas and San Antonio, the Pacers say theyre still confident in themselves and in the way theyre approaching games despite having three starters who havent played and awaiting an update on Hibberts left ankle.I think were here mentally. Were in every game, said Hill, who hit the game-winning shot Wednesday for Indiana in an 88-86 win over Charlotte. We still believe in each other.___TIP-INSNO HARD FEELINGS - Going against his former team, Gerald Green torched the Pacers for 18 points in an 8-minute span. Indiana had no answer, and Greens run came to an end only because he pulled himself out of the game to catch a breather.THEYRE FREE - Phoenix has taken advantage of its trips to the foul stripe this season, leading the league at 82.9 per cent going into Saturdays game. Against the Pacers, the Suns knocked down 18 of 20 free throws.UP NEXTIndiana plays on the road Monday at Dallas.Phoenix travels to Toronto on Monday. Keyshawn Johnson Jersey .

The result absolved Marcus Stroman, brilliant once again, of a tough luck loss while at the same time robbing Max Scherzer, brilliant once again, of a deserved win. LeVeon Bell Jersey ."

Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Colorado Avalanche resume a five-game road trip on Tuesday night looking to win in Carolina for the first time in seven years as they take on the Hurricanes at PNC Arena. The Avalanche had won five of six going into Mondays contest in Washington that kicked off this swing, but were bested 2-1. Alex Tanguay had a goal and Semyon Varlamov made 36 saves. Colorado had a three-game winning streak snapped. Im not happy that we lost but Im happy with our effort, said Colorado head coach Patrick Roy. We had some chances there in the third period and just couldnt put them away. Roy is expected to start Calvin Pickard tonight after the rookie was recalled from the minors on Saturday. Pickard has gone 6-6-2 in 14 games (11 starts) this season while filling in at times when Varlamov was out with a nagging groin issue. He has a 2.21 goals against average and .934 save percentage over that time. Pickard faced the Hurricanes in relief of Reto Berra on Nov. 22 and stopped all 17 shots faced as the Avs rallied for a 4-3 win. That gave Pickard the first victory of his career. Zach Redmonds second goal of the game was the winner with 1:35 to play, while Jarome Iginla had a goal and an assist. Berra was pulled less than 17 minutes into the game, but Colorado rebounded to beat the Hurricanes for the third time iin four meetings.dddddddddddd. Carolina has won four straight over Colorado as the host, with the Avs not winning in Raleigh since Jan. 12, 2008. Cam Ward gave up four goals on 35 shots faced in the November loss, falling to 3-3-1 in his career versus the Avalanche with a 3.13 GAA and .899 save percentage. Ward yielded four goals on 35 shots on Saturday as well in a 5-4 shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues. T.J. Oshie had the lone tally of the tiebreaker to lead the Blues. Oshie, the Blues first shooter, patiently skated through the slot, got Ward to bite on a fake and lifted a shot into the top of the net. Jake Allen made Oshies effort stand as he stopped all three shooters, including a slick glove save on Alexander Semin to end the game. Jeff Skinner and Victor Rask each tallied a goal and an assist, while Eric Staal and Riley Nash also lit the lamp for the Hurricanes.. For the most part, I thought we did a good job, Carolina head coach Bill Peters said. Pleased to go into St. Louis on the road against a team that is playing very well and get a point out of that. Carolina was coming off a 5-2 win over Buffalo, marking the first time the club has scored more than two goals in back-to-back games since Nov. 8-10. That was the tail end of a six-game run for the Canes of netting at least three goals.
