Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks were trying for their longest winning streak in nearly 16 years. The Phoenix Suns were not impressed.

Shawn Marion collected 24 points and 17 rebounds as the Suns snapped the Bucks' eight-game winning streak with a 92-81 victory.

"He (Marion) can put up double-digit rebounds any night he wants to," Phoenix coach Scott Skiles said. "He's long and his activity under the basket really bothered them."

Penny Hardaway added 14 points for Phoenix, which opened a 21-point lead late in the first half and coasted to its 19th win in 21 meetings with Milwaukee.

"We just carried ourselves in the first quarter and did what we had to do to get a win," Marion said. "Everybody rebounded well and we stopped their big scorers from getting off. There was a lot of energy on both sides of the floor."

The Bucks tried to rally in the second half, but go no closer than 11 on several occasions and missed all 15 of their 3-point attempts.

Sam Cassell scored 24 points for Milwaukee, which was seeking its first nine-game winning streak since reeling off 10 straight wins from February 6-28, 1986.

"We got outworked tonight," Bucks coach George Karl said. "They had a good game plan. They forced our guards to drive to the basket and we just didn't execute. We never had momentum. We never got the crowd into the game."

Phoenix is 9-2 at the Bradley Center since the 1991-92 campaign.

Led by Marion, the Suns maintained a 58-41 edge on the boards, including a 20-9 advantage on the offensive glass.

"Phoenix's guts are their offensive rebounds," Karl added. "We let them dominate us on the boards tonight. That's why we got dominated on the scoreboard. They are a hard team to play. They have great athleticism and they crash the boards well."

Playing without injured Glenn Robinson, the Bucks could not stay with the Suns early as Phoenix opened a 26-15 lead on Rodney Rogers' layup with 1:29 remaining in the first period.

Rogers played only played 18 minutes, leaving with a twisted ankle after taking a charge from Anthony Mason in the second quarter.

"I took a charge on Anthony Mason and he fell on my ankle," Rogers said. "I just twisted my ankle there. I lost my shoe, too. Good thing my shoe came off or I might have broken my ankle."

The Suns essentially put away the contest by outscoring the Bucks 29-16 in the second period to open a 55-36 lead at the intermission.

"In the first half, I thought we had a really good defensive game," Skiles said. "We really didn't let Ray Allen get loose. It was the second game in a row that we won and didn't shoot well because of our defense."

Phoenix shot under 40 percent (37-of-93) from the field. The Suns were coming off a 103-100 overtime victory over Minnesota that snapped the Timberwolves' nine-game winning streak.

"We've played hard the last two games and busted up two winning streaks," Skiles said. "When we play hard, we normally play well and then win games."

Allen made just 2-of-15 shots and was held to only 10 points, including six in the first half.

"Our tendency in the past has been to play bad against (Stephon) Marbury's teams," Allen said. "We did not play well tonight at all. We just haven't gotten a handle on this team for whatever reason over the last couple years."

Milwaukee shot only 39 percent (30-for-77) and was held to its lowest point total since a 95-77 loss at Minnesota on January 2.

"We had a bunch of opportunities to get back in this game, but we wanted to get in a shootout with them," Mason added. "We need to learn from games like this."
