Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Phoenix Suns fans were poised to welcome home former point guard Kevin Johnson. Another former playmaker, Penny Hardaway, gave them quite a show from his new position.

Hardaway scored 27 of his 33 points in a blistering and perfect first half as the Suns pulled away early and held on for a 90-82 victory over the lifeless Golden State Warriors.

Johnson was coaxed out of retirement Thursday after superstar point guard Jason Kidd suffered a broken left ankle. The long-time Suns star was expected to play for first time since retiring after the 1997-98 season but was not in uniform. He nevertheless received a standing ovation upon being introduced to the America West Arena crowd.

Hardaway, who became exclusively a shooting guard when he arrived in Phoenix from Orlando, was 10-of-10 in the first half. He finished 11-of-14 from the field, 11-of-13 at the line and added six rebounds and six assists.

"It's something that I have to do," Hardaway said. "I have to score points and be aggressive on the offensive end. I'm a scorer by nature. I haven't scored like that since I was in Orlando. I haven't had that kind of mentality because we have so many scorers, I always deferred."

Hardaway managed just one basket over the final 24 minutes as the Suns scored a season-low 27 points but still had enough to hold off the slumping Warriors.

"In the first half we pushed the ball and we moved at will," Hardaway said. "In the second half, they came out played harder and tightened up defensively."

Donyell Marshall scored 28 points, including a basket that cut the deficit to 79-73 with 7:41 to play. But Phoenix responded with a 7-2 run, sealing its 16th victory in 18 meetings with Golden State.

Golden State has lost five straight and 13 of 14 overall as it dropped to 7-29 on the road.

"The first half and the second half were two different games," Golden State coach Garry St. Jean said. "To give up 27 points in the second half, we really took care of business. But in the first half, you can't dig a hole like that on the road against a quality team. Penny hit two jumpers and the rest were layups. That's why he had 27 in the first."

Larry Hughes scored 16 points, Mookie Blaylock 11 and rookie Vonteego Cummings added 10 for the Warriors, who watched helplessly as the Suns buried 24-of-40 shots to take a commanding 63-40 lead at the half.

Rookie Shawn Marion scored all 15 of his points in the first half and grabbed a season-high 14 rebounds for Phoenix, which finished at 44.5 percent (33-of-74) from the field after going a dismal 9-of-34 after the half.

"We got basically no effort at all out of the locker room," Phoenix coach Scott Skiles said. "For the first few minutes they did whatever they wanted to. We were happy to have the win, but it was just not an accpetable performance."

Randy Livingston started in place of Kidd and had 10 points and seven assists.

"We wanted to go out and do a good job early," Livingston said. "In the Laker game, I got in some foul trouble early and didn't really feel comfortable. We got in the flow tonight, I got a little bit better. It's gonna take some time to adjust and then when Kevin comes in, it's gonna take more time. They just need to get used to me and I need to get used to them."

Hardaway hit three straight jumpers to give Phoenix the lead for good, 11-6, with 8:10 remaining in the opening period. He added two layups in the first quarter as Phoenix ran out to a 30-23 lead.

Hardaway hit a 12-footer, a seven-footer and made three layups in the second quarter as the Suns opened up a 23-point halftime cushion.

His sharpshooting display came to an end with 7:37 remaining in the third quarter when he threw up an airball from 17 feet.

The Warriors opened the fourth quarter with a 13-4 run, closing to 79-73 on Marshall's layup with 7:41 to play. But Hardaway's layup capped the ensuing 7-2 burst, making it 86-75 with 3:29 remaining.

"We played well in the second half, but the lead was just too much to overcome," Marshall said. "It was frustrating. We had our heads down and said here we go again. We showed how bad we could be in the first half and how good we could be in the second half."
