Peja Stojakovic sank a 22-footer at the buzzer to give the New Orleans Hornets a 132-130 double-overtime victory over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night in Phoenix.
The win made the Hornets 3-0 against the Suns this season, with two of the victories in Phoenix.
Chris Paul scored 42, one off his career high, but had only two after regulation for New Orleans. Jannero Pargo scored 12 of his 22 points in the two overtimes. Stojakovic added 26 points and David West 21 and 13 rebounds for the Hornets, who were without Tyson Chandler because of the flu.
Amare Stoudemire had 26 points and a season-best 20 rebounds for Phoenix. Steve Nash had 32 points and 12 assists but committed 10 of the Suns' 20 turnovers. Boris Diaw, starting in place of the departed Shawn Marion, scored a season-high 22. Leandro Barbosa also scored 22, including 4-of-5 on 3-pointers. Nash was 5-of-9 on 3s.
The Suns forced the first two overtimes with dramatic 3-pointers by Barbosa and Nash. They almost did it again when Barbosa made a 3 to tie it at 130 with 3.2 seconds left in the second OT.
But after a timeout, the Hornets got the ball to the sharpshooting Stojakovic, whose smooth jumper ended it, snapping New Orleans' three-game losing streak.
PISTONS 100, HEAT 95: At Auburn Hills, Mich., Rasheed Wallace had 26 points and 10 rebounds to lead Detroit past Miami.

Richard Hamilton and Chauncey Billups made enough free throws on the next three possessions to seal the win for the Pistons, who have won sixth straight.
Miami, the NBA's only team without 10 wins, has lost five in a row and 20 of 21.
