Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The frustration continues for the Seattle SuperSonics. Stephon Marbury hit an off-balanced jumper with 0.5 seconds remaining as the Phoenix Suns posted an 89-88 victory over the Sonics, who suffered their fourth straight loss in the final seconds. "Actually, the play was for Shawn (Marion)," said Marbury, who was just 3-of-12 from the field. "But the way they marked their defense up, it didn't allow us to get to him, so I ended up with the ball at the end." Seattle, which has lost those games by a combined seven points, took an 88-87 lead on Rashard Lewis' spin move on the right baseline with 11 seconds remaining. With the clock running down, Marbury answered with a leaning jumper from the right elbow. It was first his basket since the 5:12 mark of the second quarter. "Oh, what a great shot," Phoenix coach Frank Johnson said. "He said he had it going all the way. When you go 3-of-12 and then you hit the one, you only remember the last one. That's the only one I remember. He was 1-for-1 when it counted." After calling timeout to get the ball at midcourt, the Sonics had a chance as Brent Barry lofted a pass inside to Desmond Mason, who appeared to have position for a layup. But Marion blocked the shot from behind as time expired. "That was a perfect lob for him," Marion said. "If I didn't slam it against the backboard, that would have been a dunk for him." Mason did not expect a foul to be called, but thought goaltending could have been. "Any other time of the game, it might have been a foul," Mason said. "But it is the last play of the game and they're supposed to let you play. That's the way it's supposed to be. It was close, but I thought I got the ball to the glass before his hand hit it." Seattle coach Nate McMillian remains at a loss to explain his team's recent bad luck. "Is there a movie going on?" he said. "I mean, what's going on? My guys are playing. They keep fighting, they keep fighting, but we just can't seem to get any breaks." Prior to Lewis' basket, however, the Sonics came up empty on 10 straight possessions, missing seven shots and comitting three turnovers. Phoenix, which led by as many as 17 in the first half, improved to 12-3 at home despite scoring only 38 points in the second half. The defenses dominated in the fourth quarter with Phoenix scoring just 16 points and Seattle 15. The Suns were 5-of-15 from the field in the quarter and the Sonics 7-of-20. "I told our guys breaks have to start coming our way soon," McMillian said. Marion led the Suns with 30 points and 11 rebounds, while Penny Hardaway added 20 points. Rookie Amare Stoudamire chipped in with 11 points and Stephon Marbury handed out 12 assists. Lewis scored 24 points and Pedrag Drobnjak added 21 for Seattle, which has dropped four in row for the first time since December 4-8, 2001. The Sonics are just 7-12 since starting the season 8-2. Seattle closed to 51-50 at the intermission, and the contest was close throughout the second half. It featured 12 ties and 16 lead changes. Phoenix only 43 perfect from the field, but hurt the Sonics by making 12-of-26 3-pointers. Seattle was just 3-of-8 from beyond the arc. Mason scored 13 points off the bench and Gary Payton added 12 on just 5-of-18 shooting for the Sonics.
