Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The last time the Golden State Warriors were over .500 this late in the season, Tim Hardaway and Chris Mullin were still on the team.

Terry Cummings sank the go-ahead free throws with 77 seconds remaining and the Warriors used some tough defense down the stretch to snap an eight-game losing streak against the Phoenix Suns with a 94-90 victory.

After rookie Antawn Jamison converted two free throws with 4:15 remaining to give the Warriors a 90-83 advantage, Rex Chapman drained a 3-pointer and former Warrior Tom Gugliotta hit consecutive baskets to forge a 90-90 tie with 2:06 remaining. But Cummings made a pair of foul shots 49 seconds later to put Golden State ahead for good.

John Starks had a chance to put the Warriors up by four but missed two free throws with 45 seconds left. The Suns had two chances down the stretch to draw even. Rex Chapman missed a jumper and George McCloud misfired on a 3-pointer in the final 20 seconds.

"We're starting to get tight, and that's good," Starks said. "It feels good to be good and now maybe we could get better. The most important thing is to remember to take it one game at a time."

Donyell Marshall, who finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds, sealed the win for the Warriors by making two free throws with 4.6 seconds to go. Golden State missed 7-of-12 free throws in the final period and went just 21-of-38 from the line for the game.

Starks also scored 15 points for the Warriors, who have won six of their last seven after opening the season with five losses. They did not collected their sixth win last season until the 25th game. This also was Golden State's first victory over the Suns since March 23, 1996.

The Warriors have not been at .500 this late in the season since they were 8-8 on December 6, 1994.

"This is the first time in my career in the NBA that I've been at .500," said Marshall, who entered the league in 1994 with the Minnesota Timberwolves before being traded to Golden State the same season. "It's a great feeling. A lot of the players thought that if we played hard, we could win games. Well, we're starting to win games and it's exciting."

Jason Kidd finished one rebound shy of his fifth triple-double of the season for Phoenix. He had 10 points, an NBA-season high 18 assists and nine rebounds. Gugliotta led the Suns with 22 points and 10 rebounds.

"It's starting to be hard to come back game after game," Kidd said. "At least in this one, you want a chance to win at the buzzer. I couldn't make any shots and as I dished off to my team, they couldn't either."

It looked as though the Warriors were going to have their way with Phoenix in the opening quarter. McCloud hit a 20-foot jumper to give the Suns a 7-6 lead, but fueled by 10 points from Chirs Mills, Golden State close the period on a 20-6 burst to open a 13-point advantage. Mills finished with 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting.

One night after winning in Vancouver, the Suns looked like a tired team in the first quarter. They shot just 14 percent (4-of-28), finishing at 34 percent (31-of-90).

But the Suns got their act together quickly, using a 12-2 spurt to open the second quarter. Cliff Robinson, who finished with 17 points off the bench, scored six in the surge. Golden State still held a 42-38 advantage at intermission.

"They outhustled us. They looked fresher than we did in the first," Phoenix coach Danny Ainge said. "We came around but by that time, we were already behind. We need more production from other players than Gugliotta and Jason."

Mills made a layup to give the Warriors a 68-61 lead with 1:58 left in the third quarter, but Phoenix closed within 71-67 after three quarters.

In addition to Marshall's 11 rebounds off the bench, Jamision grabbed a season-high 16 boards. Golden State held a 57-46 advantage on the glass.

The Warriors shot 45 percent (33-of-73).
