Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Shawn Marion carried the Phoenix Suns early and late. Marion had a huge game and sparked a late run as the surprising Suns extended their winning streak to seven games with a 95-86 victory over the disappointing New Orleans Hornets. Coming off Tuesday's triple-overtime loss at Golden State, New Orleans hung tough for much of the night and used an 11-0 run in the fourth quarter to take an 84-82 lead with 4:31 remaining. But Marion helped the Suns respond. He converted a three-point play and scored inside before Quentin Richardson drained a 3-pointer with 2:14 left to cap an 8-0 surge that gave the Suns the lead for good. A member of the United States' disappointing Olympic team, Marion collected a season-high 33 points with 15 rebounds en route to his 10th double-double of the season. He scored 15 points in the first quarter. "I took what was given to us," Marion said. "Sometimes if you get an open three, you have to shoot it because that could be the best shot you get." Richardson added a season-high 21 points for the Suns (11-2), who are off to their best start since opening the 1980-81 campaign with a 14-2 mark. Phoenix was able to continue its winning ways despite playing the second half without point guard Steve Nash, who left the contest late in the second quarter with a concussion. Nash is not expected to miss any games. "It wasn't pretty but it was a good win for us without Steve (Nash) and Leandro Barbosa," Suns Coach Mike D'Antoni said. "Without our gas, the motor, our guys gutted it out. It was one of those games you gotta win." Amare Stoudemire contributed 14 points and 14 rebounds and Joe Johnson, who ran the point after Nash left, scored 13 points. "We knew as a team we would all have to step up when Steve went out," Johnson explained. "We had to find a will and a way. It was kind of tough playing the point because they are two of the most pressuring guards in the league, Armstrong and Wesley. I just tried to make plays when I could and keep us in it." Lee Nailon scored 22 points for the Hornets, whose introduction to playing in the Western Conference continues to be a struggle. New Orleans has lost 10 of its first 11 games. "eight of those games, we've been in them the last three or four minutes but fall apart at the end," Hornets coach Byron Scott admitted. "We don't buckle down on the defensive end get stops. That is what good teams do. On the other end, we don't have guys that are making shots." To make matters worse, the Hornets could be without center Jamaal Magloire, who suffered a fractured right ring finger late in the contest. He will be re-evaluated when the team returns home.
