Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns bent, but Amare Stoudemire would not allow them to break, keeping their winning streak alive. Stoudemire scored 33 points - topping 30 for the third consecutive game - to help the Phoenix Suns win their 11th straight contest with a 106-94 victory over the Toronto Raptors. The Suns are off to a franchise-best 24-3 start and tied their second-longest winning streak, trailing only a 14-game streak set December 1-30, 1992. Steve Nash, who scored 18 points and had 13 assists, broke Magic Johnson's record of 10 consecutive winning games with double digits in assists, set in 1986-1987. "It is kind of embarrassing in a way," Nash said. "Magic is one of the greatest players every to play the game and to be mentioned with him is a big thrill and honor. But by no stretch am I Magic." Phoenix threw away a 20-point lead when Matt Bonner's jumper tied the contest at 80-80 with 8:36 left. "We always play hard when we are down by 20," Raptors coach Sam Mitchell said. "You can't keep getting down by 20. You have to play like you're being embarrassed to start the game. For whatever reason, we get down by 20 and our pride is challenged and we play hard." Stoudemire, who has averaged 31.7 points in his last three games, scored six in an 18-5 run that put the Suns back on top, 98-85. "We kind of took it easy for a couple of minutes," Stoudemire said. "That is something we have to work on. We can't have those type of letdowns. I told (Nash) it is time to pick it up. I was ready to do that and Steve read me and gave it to me." Quentin Richardson had two of the Suns' 14 3-pointers during the outburst and finished with 18 points, while Shawn Marion scored 18 and grabbed 18 rebounds, as the Suns raised their record to 11-1 against Eastern Conference opponents. Jalen Rose came off the bench to score 19 points and Chris Bosh added 18 for the Raptors, who fall to 2-15 on the road. Toronto's bench outscored Phoenix's 50-9. "They kept coming," Rose said. "What is impressive about them is everyone knows their role and Nash keeps them happy. They have shooters like Richardson and Johnson, and Stoudemire is a beast." The Suns, who have not lost since December 3 against the Minnesota Timberwolves have won 20 of their last 21 games. It took Phoenix 71 games to pick up its 24th win last season. "I can't complain too much. We are 24-3," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "It is human nature to play in spurts. But I think our guys are smart enough to know that when we go on the road or play certain teams, we have to put them away. We talked about coming out and having a good fast start, but we had spurts and runs."
