Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Stephon Marbury and Rodney Rogers sank clutch 3-pointers in overtime as the Phoenix Suns posted a 111-104 victory over the Utah Jazz.

Marbury finished with a season-high 33 points and Rogers added 12 as the Suns outscored the Jazz, 13-6, in the extra session.

Marbury's 3-pointer from well beyond the arc gave the Suns a 103-98 lead with 3:17 left in overtime. Exactly two minutes later Rogers drained a wide open 3-pointer that extended the lead to 107-99.

While Marbury and Rogers were keying the offense, the defense was smothering. Utah shot just 2-of-10 in overtime and committed four costly turnovers.

"The difference in the overtime was our defense," Marbury said. "Plain and simple, we got out there on them and scored a few buckets and played tough defense. That's what won the game."

"It's tough to play here," Rogers added. "No matter how big a lead you have on them you have to stay on them. If you don't they are going to make a run and come back. The big thing is we took the hit and they took the lead but we kept fighting."

Phoenix squandered a 21-point second quarter lead, allowing the Jazz to chip away.

Utah played poorly defensively in the first half as it fell behind 62-50 after 24 minutes. The Jazz trailed 48-27 midway through the second quarter but finished the half on a 23-14 surge to get within striking distance.

"One of the things I thought hurt us to start off with is we gave up 62 points in the first half," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "They had a ton of offensive rebounds and fast breaks. We couldn't keep our concentration. You give up 62 and all of those offensive rebounds, that makes it difficult to win."

Utah opened the fourth quarter on a 14-3 run that cut the deficit to 65-64 and finally took the lead on Karl Malone's layup that made it 82-81 with 6:11 to play in regulation.

The Jazz extended their lead to 93-89 with just over three minutes left in regulation. But the Suns answered back with six consecutive points and Shawn Marion's jumper gave them a 95-93 edge with 2:17 to play.

The Jazz appeared to seize control on Donyell Marshall's 3-pointer with 1:25 left. John Stockton drove and kicked it out to a wide open Marshall, who gave Utah a 98-95 lead.

"The focus is really at the end of the game," said Stockton. "But falling behind by 21 early in the game is something we certainly can't afford to do. Big deficits are difficult to come back from and when everything is not clicking, it's extra difficult.

"You use a lot of energy trying to come back and then when you end up going into overtime, I think that all works against you."

After Marshall's basket, Marion committed an offensive foul with 1:14 to play to put the Jazz in an excellent posistion to pad their lead. Malone missed a short jumper and Rodney Rogers and Marbury combined for three free throws that tied the game.

Jake Tsakalidis hounded Malone and did not allow him to penetrate for a high-percentage shot.

"Jake was the only guy that did a good job on Malone, I thought," Phoenix coach Scott Skiles said. "Otherwise we struggled. He was getting us deep under the basket laying the ball in and I thought Jake did a great job. He didn't really fall for Karl's shot fakes and I thought he just did a great job tonight."

Malone, who played the final 36 minutes of the game finished with 27 points, but shot just 10-of-28. He missed four of his final five shots as Utah shot 42 percent (38-of-90).

"It's frustraing," Malone said. "I had the ball in my hands down the stretch and I didn't make it happen and that's part of it. You're either the hero or the goat. I just didn't make the shots down the stretch and we didn't win the game. If I play well we have an opportunity and if I don't play well we don't have a good opportunity.

The Jazz dropped to 0-3 in overtime and have not won consecutive games this season.
