Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- With Tracy McGrady and Mike Miller sidelined, Grant Hill had to carry the Orlando Magic, but his ankle could not bear the weight. Rookie Amare Stoudemire's dunk over a hobbling Hill with 1:14 remaining lifted the Phoenix Suns to their fourth straight triumph, an 87-84 victory over the road-weary Magic. McGrady, a superstar, and Miller, an emerging star, are the Magic's top two scorers. But McGrady sat out with a bruised lower back and Miller was sidelined with strep throat. Hill had missed most of the last two seasons with a broken ankle and had sat out the back end of some back-to-back games this season with ankle soreness. Nevertheless, Hill took charge of the offense and had his usual all-around solid game with 11 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. But he made just 4-of-15 shots and clearly was favoring the ankle in the final period. "If those guys had played, I might have sat out," Hill said. "It has been like this sometimes on back-to-backs. I just have to try and work through it." A free throw by Andrew DeClercq gave the Magic an 83-82 lead with 2:01 to play. At the other end, Stoudemire took a pretty feed from Penny Hardaway, dunked and drew a foul. His free throw gave the Suns an 85-83 lead with 1:46 left. Orlando's Darrell Armstrong split a pair of free throws, and the Suns again went down low to Stoudemire. The 6-10 rookie rose for a dunk that was blocked by Hill. But he quickly recovered the loose ball and went up again for a dunk that Hill could not block, again drawing a foul with 1:14 remaining. "That was a big play," Hill admitted. "I should've tried to wrap him up and foul him and make him make the free throw but I was kinda surprised I got the first one. I just jumped up there." "I figured I would go up strong," Stoudemire said. "I didn't think (the first one) was a block. I thought I went up and got fouled and I was kinda hot. I got the rebound and went in real strong." Stoudemire missed the free throw, leaving Phoenix with an 87-84 lead. In the final 65 seconds, Jeryl Sasser, Hill, Armstrong and Garrity missed potential tying 3-pointers, saddling the Magic with their fifth straight road loss. Shawn Marion had 19 points and 11 rebounds, Hardaway added 16, 10 and eight assists and Stoudemire scored 15 points for the Suns, who just returned from a five-game trip and now embark on a two-game swing through California. "It was really important (to win) because you would've squandered away what you did on the road with all those wins if you come home and lose," Hardaway said. "You want to keep the streak going and have some momentum going into Sacramento." "I was kind of jet-lagged still, a little bit," Marion said. Garrity scored a season-high 21 points and Sasser had career highs of 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Magic, who fell to 0-2 on a five-game trek. "The only mistake we made was that we didn't have to take the three," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "We told the guys out of the timeout, if you have the three, take it. But we wanted to take it to the basket and get within one and foul. But the guys decided to take the three and I will never fault the effort." The Magic began with great effort, opening a 28-18 lead after one quarter behind six points from Sasser, a second-year guard making his first career start. The Suns closed to 51-43 at halftime and made a push in the third quarter. Marion had a jumper and 3-pointer in an 11-2 surge that gave Phoenix a 54-53 lead. "The energy wasn't there early and it certainly showed in the first quarter and that's why I went to the bench early," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. The Magic trailed, 75-70, early in the final period, but Sasser scored six straight points before feeding Darrell Armstrong for a basket and a 78-75 lead with 6:52 to go. There were five lead changes and a tie thereafter, and neither team led by more than three points. Stephon Marbury had 12 points and nine assists and former Magic Bo Outlaw scored 10 points for the Suns, who shot 40 percent (31-of-77). Armstrong scored 10 points for Orlando, which shot under 35 percent (30-of-86).
