SACRAMENTO, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Jared Dudley scored 20 points and Steve Nash overcame a cut lip to record 15 assists Saturday in the Phoenix Suns' 98-84 victory over Sacramento.

Nash needed four stitches to close the gash, suffered in the second quarter when Sacramento's Isaiah Thomas hit him with an arm while running into a Marcin Gortat pick.

Nash, however, returned to the game and finished with four points as the Suns won for the fourth time in five games.

The Kings got 26 points from DeMarcus Cousins and Marcus Thornton netted 21.
