Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Rookie Pat Garrity scored a season-high 25 points as the Phoenix Suns rebounded from a devastating defeat by snapping the San Antonio Spurs' six-game winning streak with a 110-84 rout.

Cliff Robinson bounced back and had 22 points, including a 3-pointer to cap a decisive 13-2 third-quarter run that put Phoenix ahead for good. Robinson fouled Utah's Karl Malone behind the arc with seven-tenths of a second remaining Friday, resulting in three made free throws and a 93-92 loss.

"It was an unfortunate play, one you would love to get back," said Robinson of his blunder. "But that was the last thing I was going to let affect me on how I was going to approach this game. We did a really good job of moving the ball and that got us open underneath."

The Suns (18-19) became only the fourth team to score at least 100 points against the Spurs this season and maintained a 1 1/2-game lead over Sacramento for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Phoenix also set a franchise record by holding its 10th straight opponent below 100 points.

Tim Duncan scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Spurs (24-11), who suffered their most lopsided loss of the season. San Antonio, which had won 18 of its previous 20 games, is third in the West, one-half game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers.

"This was our worst performance," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We were a step behind and as a team we were very poor defensively. I think Phoenix deserves a lot of credit after what they had to go through last night."

"They played a great game all around," Duncan added. "I got my looks in the second half, I just couldn't knock them down. Their defensive scheme changed throughout the game. They came quick and sometimes they didn't come at all. It was just different."

David Robinson, who has struggled offensively, had one of his poorer games of the season with four points on 1-of-9 shooting and two rebounds in 24 minutes.

"You don't get shots if you don't make them and I wasn't making the shots," he said. "They shot well and we did not play defense together. It was awful. Defensively, we were a step behind everybody. It was one of our worst efforts. We're chasing Utah and we can't afford to do this."

Garrity started for injured forward Tom Gugliotta, who missed his fifth straight game with a knee sprain. The 6-9 forward from Notre Dame was 11-of-16 from the field. He entered the contest averaging 4.4 points in 25 games.

"Most of my shots were open shots and I think that's what happens when you're a new guy," Garrity said. "Some defenses concentrate on your other people. I was lucky to hit the first couple of my shots and get some confidence, and then it's a lot easier to shoot after that. It helps getting good, consistent minutes. I didn't think I would get this kind of minutes this early. But Gugliotta is the guy still and I'll be fine when he gets back."

Phoenix center Luc Longley also sat out with a sprained left knee and is listed as day-to-day. Veteran Joe Kleine started in the middle and frustrated Robinson for most of the game.

Rex Chapman scored 18 points and Jason Kidd added 15 and 14 assists for the Suns, who improved to 2-1 against the Spurs this season.

"I felt we did a very good job defensively," Phoenix coach Danny Ainge said. "We shot the ball very well from the outside and that makes a big difference. We made them take the shots we wanted them to take. Shooting is a beautiful thing. When you're making shots it puts a little more bounce in your step.

Danny Manning had 14 points and a season-high 13 rebounds off the bench for Phoenix, which shot 55 percent (47-of-85), including 9-of-14 from 3-point range.

Malik Rose scored 13 points and Mario Elie added 11 for the Spurs, who shot 38 percent (31-of-82) but were only 3-of-13 from beyond the arc.

Elie drained a jumper with 10 seconds left in the first half to forge a 49-49 tie. Robinson hit a 12-foot jumper to open the third quarter and the clubs traded baskets until Phoenix went ahead for good, 55-53, on Garrity's dunk with 9:25 left.

Garrity followed with a layup, Chapman drilled a 15-footer and Robinson drained a 3-pointer to cap the run, giving Phoenix a 62-53 cushion with 7:08 remaining.
