Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Penny Hardaway and Shawn Marion pushed the Phoenix Suns closer to the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Hardaway and Marion each scored 24 points as the Suns won their third straight and reduced their magic number to one for a postseason berth with a 117-101 victory over the Golden State Warriors. Phoenix won for the seventh time in nine games and can earn a playoff spot with a victory in one of its final three games or with a loss by the Houston Rockets. The Suns next host the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday in a possible preview of a first-round playoff series. "It's good, the magic number is still one," Marion said. "We've still got to get another one. We've got to go take our time and get the next one." The Suns had four players score 20 points or more. Rookie Amare Stoudemire scored 21 points, Joe Johnson added 20 and Stephon Marbury finished with 15 points and 10 assists. "We're playing great right now," Hardaway said. "We just want to keep the momentum that we have going right now." The fast-paced contest produced numerous spectacular plays, but was difficult from a coaching standpoint. "It was very entertaining for the game, certainly for the fans, but not for me," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "I'm very proud of these guys, they battled. We had big contributions from everyone." Marbury made two free throws and fed Marion for a basket as Phoenix took an 85-82 lead into the fourth quarter. Hardaway and Johnson each made jumpers to start the fourth for a seven-point advantage. The Warriors pulled within 98-92 on a pair of free throws by Gilbert Arenas with 5:35 remaining. Johnson and Marion answered with baskets and Marion fed Stoudemire for an athletic three-point play for a 105-92 advantage with 3:38 to go. "We did what we needed when we had to, which was in the fourth quarter again," Johnson said. Jason Richardson scored just two of his 27 points after halftime to lead Golden State. Richardson also grabbed 10 rebounds and his 25 points in the first half matched a season high for a Suns opponent. "I didn't think we came out aggressive in the second half," Richardson said. "You've got to step up and I don't think we did." The loss officially eliminated the Warriors from playoff contention, but the fact they were in it was a surprise for a franchise that had become accustomed to 60-loss seasons. "Our guys competed in our 79th game and we were not eliminated from the playoff race until after this ballgame," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "The team made a lot of progress, a lot of strides." Hardaway notched his first triple-double of the year in his last game and followed it up by making 11-of-17 shots, grabbing seven rebounds and handing out six assists. His 24 points was a season high and eclipsed a 21-point effort at Dallas on March 22. "Penny had a triple-double last game and was 11-for-17," Johnson said. "He's been pretty much every day working with his shot and spending a lot of time with it." Stoudemire dunked four times in the fourth quarter and scored 14 points. He added 10 rebounds for the game and helped Phoenix to a 58-34 advantage in points in the paint. Golden State played well in the first quarter, taking a 26-19 lead on Richardson's jumper with 4:43 to go. Richardson scored 14 points as the Warriors took a 36-33 lead. Antawn Jamison's three-point play made it 47-37 early in the second quarter before a 3-pointer by Johnson keyed nine straight points by the Warriors. After a free throw by the Warriors' Bob Sura, the Suns used a 16-6 surge to grab a 62-54 advantage on Johnson's layup. Jamison scored 24 points and Troy Murphy added 14 and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which held a 48-43 edge on the glass. Point guard Gilbert Arenas added 13 assists.
