GAME RECAP

Cedric Ceballos and Antonio McDyess scored 17 points apiece to lead seven Suns in double figures as Phoenix beat the Golden State Warriors for the fifth straight time, 91-76.

Suns guard Jason Kidd fell one rebound shy of his first triple-double of the season, finishing with 10 points and 10 assists. Rex Chapman chipped in 14 points for Phoenix, which won its third game in a row and fifth in the last six home contests.

"I knew I needed one rebound.," Kidd said. "I had my chance a couple of times, I didn't get it. It's something I'm not gonna kill myself over, the win is more important."

Tony Delk scored 15 points and Joe Smith added 13 for Golden State, which committed 27 turnovers and made just 5-of-12 free throws. The Warriors dropped their seventh consecutive road game, dropping to 1-12 away from home.

"Turnovers killed us, we gave up a lot of points on second chances," Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "In terms of what we were trying to do, we did a lot of things really well. We just didn't give ourselves a chance to win."

Ceballos hit all four of his field-goal attempts and scored 11 points in the fourth quarter, including four straight that built a 74-61 lead with 8:50 to play.

"Luckily Golden State was in here, and they're struggling," Ceballos said. "So we jumped on them and did what we were supposed to do."

A layup by Delk trimmed the deficit to 76-67, but the Suns reeled off the next eight points to seal their third straight win.

Kidd hit a layup and, after making a steal on the other end, found Ceballos for a fast-break dunk. Kidd fed Ceballos once again on the break for an easy layup before a lay-in by McDyess gave Phoenix an 84-67 cushion with 3:01 to go.

Golden State got no closer than 11 points thereafter and suffered its third straight defeat.

"I don't think they played all that well, but when they did miss, they got a lot of second shots and converted them for easy baskets," Warriors guard Brian Shaw said. "On top of that, we didn't make our free throws. All those things together mean a long night."

Steve Nash had 11 points and eight assists while Danny Manning and Cliff Robinson added 10 points apiece for Phoenix, which shot 49 percent (36-of-74) from the field and made just 16-of-29 free throws. The 76 points tied the third-lowest total ever allowed by the Suns.

"Our defense was pretty good, we were forcing a lot of turnovers," Phoenix coach Danny Ainge said. "But offensively, we're still not executing well enough. We're making some progress, we're winning the games we should win and our defense is good."

The Warriors trailed by nine at halftime but pulled within 54-52 on a three-pointer by Bimbo Coles, who had 12 points and six assists.

Phoenix then took control with an 8-2 spurt, capped by two free throws and a jumper by Chapman with 2:29 left in the third quarter. McDyess scored seven points in the period, helping the Suns to a 66-57 lead.

"Everybody expected us to win this game," McDyess said. "We've just got to continue to play hard and better against good teams."

Erick Dampier registered 11 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks for Golden State, which has beaten the Suns just once in the last nine meetings and has lost five straight in Phoenix.
