Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Stephon Marbury took the finale of a five-game road trip into his own hands. Marbury collected 21 points, 10 assists and four steals and fueled a third-quarter surge as the Phoenix Suns completed a successful trip with a 102-88 victory over the Atlanta Hawks, who have lost three straight games. After dropping the first two games of their trip, the Suns bounced back by beating Boston, Philadelphia and Atlanta. Marbury had 28 points and 10 assists Friday and followed with another solid performance. Returning to the city where he played his lone season of college basketball, Marbury took control at the outset of the second half. In a 12-2 run, he set up three baskets and scored the last two, capping it at 62-53 with a driving layup at the 7:24 mark. "It was a hard game," Marbury said. "I think for us we were looking at that long plane ride. At halftime, we made our minds up to go out there and dominate the game." "When we play with energy and have a sense of urgency, that's what this team does when we seem to play well," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "We lost some games that I felt we shouldn't have lost because we did not play with urgency. When we play teams that say they are - on paper - better than us, we know if we don't play with energy, we are going to lose the game." The Hawks trailed, 78-65, entering the final period and got no closer than nine points thereafter. The Suns opened their largest lead at 101-83 on a 3-pointer by Joe Johnson in the final minute. Shawn Marion scored 24 points and rookie Amare Stoudemire added 17 and 14 rebounds for the Suns, who have won seven of the last eight meetings with the Hawks. "We felt like we weren't playing as well as we are able to in the first half," Marion said. "We came out in the second half and played better mentally." Jason Terry scored 20 points for Atlanta, which wasted a 12-point second-quarter lead and had a four-game home winning streak snapped. "We're not going out there and giving our all. It's frustrating," Hawks forward Ira Newble said. "I am embarrassed for myself and my teammates for the performance tonight, all the way down the line." The Hawks took a 51-50 lead on a dunk by Shareef Abdur-Rahim in the first minute of the second half before Marbury took over, finding Marion for a jumper. Stoudemire and Theo Ratliff traded layups before Marbury found Marion and Dan Langhi for mid-range jumpers and a five-point lead. Marbury sank a jumper and drove for a hoop to cap the burst. "At that point, we needed that," Marbury said. "Whenever we're in a situation to get the easy buckets, we get the easy bucket." A 3-pointer by Glenn Robinson, who made just 5-of-18 shots, pulled Atlanta within 85-76 with 7:12 remaining. Stoudemire retaliated with a jumper, and Phoenix held a double-digit lead the rest of the way. "We talked about reacting the opposite way when opponents make a run," Hawks coach Lon Kruger said. "When someone makes a run, you have to bristle up. We have to pick up our heads and not have the response that we did." Langhi scored 11 points for the Suns, who shot 44 percent (41-of-93) and committed just 10 turnovers, none by Marbury. Abdur-Rahim had 16 points and nine boards and Ratliff had 12 and 12 for the Hawks, who shot under 41 percent (33-of-81) and committed 16 turnovers. Robinson scored 12 points, nine below his average. A 3-pointer by Terry gave the Hawks a 26-16 lead late in the first quarter. They pushed the advantage to 40-28 midway through the second period, but Penny Hardaway scored seven points and Marbury six to help cut the deficit to 49-48 at halftime. "We just didn't play with any enthusiasm, didn't get after it," Terry said. "They made a little run at us, and we kind of folded. We had a good lead on them, and then all of a sudden, it turned around. It turned so quick."
