The Nets' hot shooting from 3-point range continued in Phoenix on Friday. And this time, it actually carried them to their third win of the season, a 110-103 victory over the Suns.

Phoenix was playing without Steve Nash and Grant Hill, and the score was tight most of the night. The Nets went up seven late in the third quarter when Deron Williams hit three 3-pointers in less than 90 seconds. They went up 12 midway through the fourth, but the Suns cut the lead down to three with less than three minutes to go.

The Nets were able to hold them off though, with Anthony Morrow hitting the dagger off a Williams feed with less than a minute left.

The Nets shot 50 percent from the field and 15-for-32 from 3-point range. Williams had a double-double early in the third quarter and finished with 35 points and 14 assists, hitting six of his nine threes. MarShon Brooks was among five other Nets in double-figures with 20 points, adding a big assist to Kris Humphries down the stretch.

On the injury front, shin splints in his right leg kept Shawne Williams from playing the second half. He said after the game that he will need surgery after the season to repair a fracture in on his lower left leg.
