PHOENIX (AP) - Derrick White scored a season-high 25 points, Bryn Forbes added 24 and the San Antonio Spurs coughed up a 20-point lead in the second half before rallying to beat the Phoenix Suns 120-118. San Antonio led 96-83 going into the fourth quarter, but Phoenix chipped away. Ricky Rubio converted a three-point play to push the Suns ahead for the first time at 113-111, but Forbes hit his eighth 3-pointer with 2:33 remaining to put the Spurs back up. Devin Booker missed a long 3 with about two seconds left that would have won it. Booker led the Suns with 37 points, including 22 in the third quarter.
