Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Stephon Marbury was not the only one hearing cheers at America West Arena. Shawn Marion and Amare Stoudemire set the tone in the first half to help spoil Marbury's return as the Suns stopped an eight-game losing streak with a 113-95 victory over the struggling New York Knicks. Since dealing Marbury and Penny Hardaway to the Knicks on January 5, the Suns have posted a woeful 7-18 record while Marbury has brought some excitement to New York. Marbury, who spent two-plus seasons with the Suns, was cheered during pregame introductions before making his way over to give hugs to the Phoenix coaching staff. "It was great to get the respect that I got from the fans," Marbury said. "Like I said, I love Phoenix. Phoenix has been good to me. I've grown here as a person and a basketball player." But once the game started, Marion and Stoudemire quickly helped ruin Marbury's return as they combined for 30 points in the first half on 13-of-16 shooting, helping the Suns open a 56-38 lead. Marbury had a solid game with 15 points and 13 rebounds but could not prevent the Knicks from their fourth straight loss and sixth in seven games. The Knicks are 12-12 since acquiring the New York native. "They played great basketball tonight," Marbury said. "They played with a lot of confidence. They shot the ball extremely well. Amare set the tone in the beginning of the game. They all played well as a group." To make matters worse, the Knicks were without recently acquired Tim Thomas virtually the entire way after he hyperextended his left elbow in the first quarter. Marion was at his best in the first quarter, when he made all seven of his shots and scored 14 points. He had eight points in an 18-4 run over the final 5:35 of the period, giving the Suns a 31-17 cushion. "We played really well in the first quarter. Shawn didn't miss a shot," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "Everybody added something tonight, which was nice." The only thing that could stop Marion was a sprained left ankle that sidelined him late in the third quarter. He scored 18 points on 9-of-12 shooting. "It feels very similar to how it felt when I twisted it in the game against the Lakers (on Sunday)," Marion said. Stoudemire was unstoppable down low as collected 24 points and 14 rebounds. The reigning Rookie of the Year had nine points in the second quarter, when the Suns led by as many as 22 points. Stoudemire helped the Suns to a commanding 58-26 rebounding advantage. "You can't allow a team to control the boards like that," Knicks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "That was a terrible effort on our part." Joe Johnson, who has seen increased playing time since the deal with the Knicks, scored 16 of his 22 points in the second half for Phoenix, which never let the lead dip below double digits. "We got off to a solid first quarter where we were able to build the lead instead of playing catch-up like we did the previous games," Johnson said. "We didn't let up in the second half and got ourselves a good victory." Jahidi White added 12 points and Casey Jacobsen 10 for the Suns, who shot 50 percent (47-of-94). Kurt Thomas netted 25 points and DerMarr Johnson - cut by Phoenix during training camp - had a season-high 16 for New York, which shot 45 percent (38-of-84) in falling to a 0-2 on a four-game road trip.
