Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Quentin Richardson's breakout game kept the Phoenix Suns from a losing streak. Richardson made a team-record eight 3-point attempts en route to scoring a season-high 37 points as the Suns improved to 8-1 on the road with a 121-99 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. The Pacific Division-leading Suns improved to 14-3, just behind Seattle and San Antonio, who are tied for the best record in the league at 15-3. After winning nine consecutive games, Phoenix lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, 97-93. "It's big for us to come out and get this tonight," Richardson said. "Anytime a big winning streak is stopped, it's important to get another going." With the Suns trailing, 45-43, midway through the second quarter, Richardson keyed a 19-2 run with five baskets from the arc to help Phoenix take a 62-50 lead into the break. Richardson scored 18 points in the period. "I just kept shooting and just kept hitting," Richardson said. "I'm just glad that it happened on a night that we won. It wouldn't have mattered if we had lost." "He was smoking hot tonight," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "He definitely had some heat checks out there." Richardson added 14 points in the third quarter, which teammate Joe Johnson ended with a 3-pointer from the corner as time expired to open a 99-76 advantage. Portland never got within single digits in the second half. "Richardson making all those threes demoralized the people who were guarding him," Trail Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "Our defense was on our heels." The 24-year-old Richardson made 12-of-19 shots overall, missing just four shots from 3-point range, and all five of his free-throw attempts in his best game since signing with the Suns as a free agent this past offseason. "Any player waits for a night like this, where the rim seems kike a hula-hoop to them and everything keeps going in," Richardson added. "(Richardson) went absolutely bananas," said Suns forward Shawn Marion, who added 14 points and nine rebounds. "He kept it going, so we were going to keep finding him. What more can you ask?" In the first 11 games, Richardson averaged just 9.6 points, but in the last six he is scoring 21.5 a game. "During the course of a game you try and spread it around," said Suns guard Steve Nash, who finished with 11 assists. "But when a guy gets going like that, you just want to feed him." The Suns made 15-of-27 attempts from the arc, while the Trail Blazers missed all nine of theirs. "I thought we would come with a better defensive effort tonight," Cheeks said. "That didn't happen." Portland's Zach Randolph collected 24 points and 11 rebounds, but he scored just 11 points after the first quarter. "I think it's time for a change," Randolph said. "Starting lineup, personnel, I don't know. I know we got to go to practice and work on a lot of things." Phoenix didn't win its eighth road game last year until March 15 at Houston. "Sometimes when you're on the road it takes a little more pressure off of you," Marion said. "I think that maybe a reason we are playing so well away from home right now."
