Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns had no answer for Rashard Lewis in the second half. Lewis scored 25 of his 29 points after the break as the Seattle SuperSonics handed the Suns a damaging 82-73 defeat. Phoenix, which was tied with Houston for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff spot, held Seattle to 26 percent shooting in the first half but held just a 37-35 edge. Lewis scored 16 points during Seattle's 18-3 burst to open the third quarter. He hit a jumper to give the Sonics the lead for good, 40-39, with 10 1/2 minutes left in the period and capped the run with a dunk to make it 53-40 less than four minutes later. "We were executing the play the coaches were running for us," said Lewis, who scored 16 points on 6-of-6 shooting in the third quarter. "We executed to a `T,' and that got us easy baskets." "Rashard was the spearhead of that run," Sonics guard Ray Allen said. "We made some good offensive plays." Lewis' performance was especially impressive since he had blurry vision after getting poked in the eye in the first half. "I got a little scratch and they gave me a contact lens just to protect it until tomorrow," Lewis said. "It was blurry at the beginning of the second half, but it wore off by the fourth quarter." "Tonight he got off to a slow start and had the injury, then coming back in the second half, playing big and scoring for us," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "Hopefully, that's a sign of maturity, for him to be able to have a bad half and come back in the second half to help the team win. Two years ago, he might hae been out for the game. Tonight, he really carried us in the second half." The Suns climbed within 51-43 entering the fourth quarter and 64-63 on a layup by Stephon Marbury with 8:17 remaining. But Lewis sank a jumper, Allen nailed a 3-pointer and Lewis made a layup to give Seattle a 71-63 advantage with 5:26 left. Phoenix got no closer than four points thereafter. "What can I say other than that it was just an absolute horrible performance by us defensively?" Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "They just kept going to Rashard Lewis and Shawn (Marion) couldn't stop him. I asked him and he said that he wanted him but couldn't stop him. Then, when we did have a chance, we cut it down to one, and all of a sudden we couldn't make a shot." "We just let this one slip out of our hands," Marion added. "I guess I wasn't doing what I'm supposed to do tonight, and I put it on my shoulders." Allen scored 23 points for Seattle, which won for just the third time in 11 road games. "We played like a team is supposed to play," Allen said. "We were physical and made big shots down the stretch." Marbury totaled 22 points and 10 assists and Marion added 15 points for the Suns, who tied their season low in scoring. They also had 73 points in a 13-point loss at Seattle on October 30. "I didn't sense we were tired at all," Johnson said. "They had back-to-backs and we had yesterday off, so I was expecting to come out energized." "One of our keys was for us to play at our rhythm, play our style of basketball, and they basically forced us to play at their rhythm," said Suns center Jake Voskuhl, who scored 12 points. "An up and down game plays to our advantage, but a slow-down game plays to theirs because they've got some big guys in there." The Suns limited the Sonics to 37 percent shooting (28-of-76) but shot just 41 percent (30-of-74) and were outrebounded by 50-36. "Offensively, coming out in the second half, we settled for the shots we took from outside when we could have moved the ball better," Johnson said. "We had chances and we just couldn't rebounds. Seattle beat us by 14 rebounds? Give me a break." Seattle is in 11th place in the West, just 3 1/2 games behind Houston for the final playoff berth. "This is a real big win because of where we are and the teams we are fighting with," Lewis said.
