Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The hottest team in the Western Conference could not fend off a rally by another surging team. Shawn Marion scored 24 points and Stephon Marbury added 20 as the Phoenix Suns dominated the fourth quarter and rallied for an 88-81 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. The Trail Blazers had won 10 of their previous 11 games but had a four-game home winning streak snapped by the red-hot Suns, who have taken 11 of 14 to climb up the Western Conference standings. Portland look like it was on its way to another victory with a 72-62 lead at the 10:15 mark of the fourth quarter. But Joe Johnson sank a runner to spark a decisive 20-2 run for Phoenix. The Suns scored 14 consecutive points and took the lead for good on a driving layup by Marbury with 6:20 left. "I think in the first half we weren't as aggressive as we were in the second half, and that was the difference in the game," Marbury said. "We rebounded the ball, we got in the passing lanes, we made them handle the ball in the backcourt and we put pressure on their guys." "I think their pressure really affected us," Portland guard Antonio Daniels said. "We didn't counter their run very well at all. Our defensive intensity wasn't there tonight like it has been in the past 10 or 11 ballgames, and I think that proved to be the difference." Bonzi Wells made a layup with 5:18 remaining - Portland's first basket in nearly five minutes - to pull the Blazers within 76-74. But the Suns scored six consecutive points on a pair of free throws by Marbury, a tip shot by Marion and Penny Hardaway's 17-foot jumper with 3:35 to go. "I thought they played harder than us in the first half and they just outhustled us. We played harder in the second half and good things happened," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "Every time we play hard and turn it up and play with a sense of urgency, we always have a chance." The Blazers never recovered, scoring just 14 points on 5-of-20 shooting in the fourth quarter. "This was a tough loss for us because it looked like we had a little control of the game," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "But each time that it looked like we had control of the game, they were making a run to come back. We couldn't make the big shots down the stretch, and that was really the difference." Johnson finished with 17 points and Hardaway added nine for Phoenix, which shot just 45 percent (31-of-69) but held Portland to 36 percent (32-of-88). Wells scored 18 points and Rasheed Wallace collected 12 and 10 rebounds for the Blazers, who made only 3-of-20 3-pointers and went to the line just 18 times on their home floor. Phoenix had a 9-6 lead less than five minutes into the game before Portland went on a 15-2 run. Wells scored seven points during the burst, which gave the Blazers a 21-11 lead with 3:15 left in the opening period. Portland did not relinquish the lead until Phoenix's decisive run and had its largest lead at halftime, 49-36.
