Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Shawn Marion scored 23 points and Stephon Marbury added 20 as the Phoenix Suns posted their season-high fifth straight victory, a 110-93 triumph over the slumping Golden State Warriors.

Marion made 11-of-16 shots and had nine rebounds, six assists, three blocked shots and three steals in the win -- Phoenix's seventh in eight games.

"Shawn was active once again on defense," Suns coach Scott Skiles said. "I thought he did a great job on (Antawn) Jamison and that always gets him going, that always gets him somehow, some way, some easy hoops. I thought he had a real nice all-around game."

Marbury, the NBA Player of the Week, was 7-of-11 from the field and had 11 of the team's season-high 31 assists. Both Marbury and Marion sat out the entire fourth quarter, which started with the Suns ahead, 87-65.

"We're playing really well together, and we're really matching each other, jelling well together," Marbury said. "Things are looking really good for us, as far as the way we're playing on defense."

After Golden State trimmed a 15-point halftime deficit to 60-50 with 8:26 left in the third quarter, Penny Hardaway hit a 3-pointer to start a 13-0 run over the next 1:57. Phoenix was not challenged thereafter and led by as many as 29.

Hardaway registered 14 points and eight assists while Rodney Rogers added 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting for the Suns, who have won 21 of 25 games against the Warriors.

"We're coming together, and we're just playing hard every night and making sure we play tough on defense," Rogers said. "Our offense we don't worry about, because we know we can score with the best of them, and we've got a lot of weapons. The main thing is making sure we hold our opponents down."

Golden State (7-11) dropped its season-high fourth straight game and eighth in 10 contests. The Warriors were led by Larry Hughes' 19 points.

"This is tough," Hughes said. "We've just got to sustain it and play good defense. A lot of teams' runs are like eight or 10, but teams are running up, like, 20-25 on us and getting big leads. That's something we've got to work on."

Jamison contributed 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Danny Fortson had 12 and 10.

"This used to be the main focus, defense," Jamison said. "Now we aren't talking, no energy. I'm (ticked) that we can't score points. Teams are getting a lot of points off turnovers, things like that. Right now, we're just not clicking on any cylinders."

Phoenix (12-7) held Golden State to just 37 percent (34-of-93) from the field. The Suns were much more successful shooting the ball, converting 52 percent (45-of-86) of their attempts.

The Suns forced the Warriors into 23 turnovers, which led to 18 points.

"We played defense tonight," Marion said. "We took advantage of all the turnovers they had, and that's the way the whole game went."

"They kept the ball alive and made things happen," Warriors coach Dave Cowens said. "Those guys pop out and then they dribble in. They just get you running all over the (darn) place because of the initial penetration. We're (darned) if we do and (darned) if we don't. That really hurt us and it's very difficult to stop them."
