Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Tom Gugliotta scored 10 of his 21 points in the pivotal third quarter and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Phoenix Suns received a desperately needed visit from the Golden State Warriors and cruised to a 93-78 victory.

Gugliotta hit 5-of-6 shots in the third period, including a tip-in that triggered a 22-6 burst to close the quarter. He added a layup and two jumpers in that run, which gave the Suns a commanding 77-56 lead.

"We didn't let them go on a big run, like we've been doing. We were able to go on a run on them," said Gugliotta. "Everybody in this locker room knew the importance of this game, and we knew how important it was to get a good start."

With a 48-42 halftime edge, Phoenix took command by hitting 57 percent (12-of-21) from the field in the third quarter and holding Golden State to 30 percent (6-of-20).

Known this decade as one of the NBA's better home teams, the Suns entered this contest with two straight home losses and six in their last eight games at America West Arena.

The Suns welcomed the Warriors and continued its dominance at home in the series. Golden State has won just twice in its last 27 trips to Phoenix, including a 102-89 defeat on February 28 when it scored an NBA record-low six points in the fourth quarter.

Rookie Antawn Jamison had 16 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which fell 1 1/2 games behind Phoenix for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Warriors were coming off Tuesday's stunning 93-90 win over the league-leading Trail Blazers.

"This was probably the biggest game of the season for us. We had a chance to move up a position into the playoff spot," Jamison said. "We did a terrific job yesterday, and playing back-to-back, that should not be an excuse. We should've been ready for this game."

John Starks, Donyell Marshall and Chris Mills -- Golden State's top three scorers -- combined to shoot an abysmal 3-of-29 from the floor for just eight points.

Jason Kidd collected 14 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and six steals for the Suns, who made 16 steals and forced 22 turnovers. Cliff Robinson scored 16 points and Luc Longley added 13 and nine rebounds as Phoenix grabbed a season-high 52 boards, which was still eight fewer than the Warriors.

"I think the team knew that this was an urgent time, with Golden State coming in and only being a half game back," Kidd said. "I think we came out with that energy that we needed and we moved the ball like we did, where everybody was touching it. We got everybody involved. This could be a team that's fun to watch."

Golden State shot just 34 percent (31-of-90) from the field while Phoenix hit 39.5 percent (34-of-86) of its shots.

The Warriors went scoreless for the first three minutes of the game and faced a 24-14 deficit after one quarter. Golden State battled back behind Jamison, who scored four points in a 9-0 spurt that tied the game, 32-32, with 4:41 left before halftime. The Warriors grabbed their first lead just over a minute later on Jamison's layup.

Robinson helped turned the game in the Suns' favor by scoring all but one of his team's points in a 12-4 run to close the first half.

Gugliotta took over in the third after Warriors starting forward Jason Caffey went to the bench with his fourth foul.

"When (Caffey) got his fourth foul early, the Googs matchup just killed us," said Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo. "They took advantage of us. They defended very well and we were a step slow all night."

Gugliotta rebounded a missed free throw by Robinson, leading to a 3-pointer by Kidd. The 6-10 forward followed that with a layup, won a jump ball with Marshall that led to Longley's jumper and hit a six-footer to make it 67-52. Gugliotta later fed George McCloud for a lay-in and buried a jumper for a 71-56 advantage with 1:19 remaining.

Bimbo Coles and Terry Cummings each scored 14 points for the Warriors, who were outscored in the paint, 50-28.
