Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Suddenly, the Phoenix Suns are developing a very potent triple threat. Stephon Marbury scored 38 points, Shawn Marion added 31 and rookie Amare Stoudemire collected 17 and 13 rebounds as the Suns ran their home winning streak to 10 games with a 107-99 victory over the Utah Jazz. "I certainly don't know if it answers the question that was asked by some of the reporters earlier of whether Steph and Shawn deserve to be All-Stars, but they played like All-Stars tonight," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "They were huge for us, especially in the second half and down the stretch when they were making plays. That was big for us." In Marbury's first season with the Suns, they finished with 36 wins and missed postseason for the first time in 14 years. About the only positive from last season was the Suns finishing in the lottery, which enabled them to use the ninth overall pick on Stoudemire. Along with Marbury, who seems to be adjusting to the Suns, and Marion, whose scoring average has improved in each of his first three seasons, Stoudemire has emerged as one of the best first-year players in the league. "They present some tough problems for you because they have tremendous quickness with Marion and Marbury," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "And then you have Stoudamire, who is like a rope. He is so quick and active." Despite having John Stockton guarding him, Marbury has always had big games vs. Utah. He has averaged 28.3 points in this season's three meetings with the Jazz and has averaged 25 points in his career against Utah. "We have never been able to contain him," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "This goes back when he first came in the league with Minnesota. He's always been able to get on top of the basket if we don't step up and do things necessary to stop him. That aside, he had a tremendous game." Against the Jazz, all three made major contributions and hit clutch baskets down the stretch. "They made some big shots, and Stephon, he was great tonight," Jazz forward Matt Harpring said. "We had to stop him and when we stopped him, he found the open man. When you give up big shots like that and they make them, it's tough when you're on the road. They've got the crowd; they've got everything behind them. Sometimes you have to give the other team credit for making shots." In 44 minutes, Marbury finished 13-of-24 from the floor. His hook shot gave the Suns a 93-90 lead with 1:55 remaining. Marion, who made 10-of-19 shots, hit a long 3-pointer with 1:29 left to extend the lead to 96-92. Stoudemire made 7-of-8 shots. His dunk with 62 seconds to play made it 99-92 and finished off Utah. "I think that was a key dunk," Stoudemire said. "I got the loose ball and just went up strong." Marbury scored 22 points in the second half. The Suns outscored the Jazz, 33-25, in the fourth quarter en route to their 14th win in 18 games overall and 17th home win. The Jazz, who came leading the league in field-goal percentage at 47 percent, shot just 35 percent (7-of-20) in the final period after shooting 54.5 percent (30-of-55) in the the first three quarters. Most of Marbury's baskets were on driving layups through multiple defenders, but he also dished out eight assists. His biggest one was when he found Marion open for a long 3-pointer. "Tonight we really just wanted to try to pretty much attack those guys," Marbury said. "We knew they pack it in inside the paint, so it's really hard to drive. But tonight we just ket pressing the issue. Eventually we knew that if we continued to attack the paint, we knew it would open up for easy shots." The trio combined for 86 points as rookie Casey Jacobsen was the only other Sun in double figures with 10. Sunday was the first time since in nearly eight years two Suns reached 30 points. It last happened on January 19, 1995, when Charles Barkley and Dan Majerle netted 30 apiece. Harpring and Karl Malone scored 26 points apiece for the Jazz, who had won six of seven, including Wednesday's 99-93 home victory over the Suns. Despite Harpring's big game, he scored just eight in the second half. He made 7-of-8 shots as the Jazz took a 48-43 lead into the locker room, but the Jazz were never able to increase the lead. Marbury's three-point play forged a 60-60 tie with just over five minutes remaining. Jacobsen's free throws gave Phoenix its first lead since the first quarter at 68-67 with 3:12 remaining. "We made adjustments," Malone said. "We just couldn't get the ball where it needed to go. You give them credit. It got away and it away in their favor. They did what they supposed to down the stretch and we didn't."
