Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- While the Seattle SuperSonics could not buy a basket from long range, Joe Johnson could not miss. Johnson made all five of his 3-pointers and matched a season high with 30 points to lead the Phoenix Suns to a 110-99 victory over the SuperSonics. A meeting of the league's top two 3-point shooting teams was a mismatch. Johnson's perfect effort from the arc keyed the Suns' 10-of-17 showing. The Sonics were done in by a 3-of-27 performance, including Vladimir Radmanovic's 0-of-8. "They just missed, it happens," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "That's why you can't read that much into one game. They missed shots that they would a lot of times make. Some days you are going to hit them and they, like us, hit them most of the time. It was just one of those nights." Phoenix has won two of three from Seattle this season in a series between two of the most surprising and exciting units in the league. Johnson was the key in both victories. The 6-7 swingman scored 24 points with 10 rebounds in a win at Seattle on December 18. He was held to six in a home loss to the Sonics on February 11 but had it going early in this one. "I kind of took what the defense gave me tonight," Johnson said. "I just took it upon myself to use my ball-handling abilities to get into the lane and make plays. They were paying a lot of attention to Steve (Nash), doubling him in full court, and he was just kicking it up and we were making plays." Johnson finished the scoring in the first quarter with his first 3-pointer and added 12 points in the second to help the Suns take a 60-50 halftime lead. After Seattle pulled within 101-94 with less than three minutes left, Johnson scored four straight points to keep Phoenix comfortably ahead. "Tonight Joe was on fire and they had no answer for him and that's why we got the win," said Suns All-Star center Amare Stoudemire, who contributed 22 points. Shawn Marion chipped in 18 and 10 rebounds for Phoenix, which was aided by the two fourth-quarter technical fouls on Seattle coach Nate McMillan. McMillan was visibly upset with the officiating and picked up the two fouls in just over a two-minute span early in the fourth, the second after Sonics guard Antonio Daniels appeared to be fouled hard on a drive to the hoop but received no call. McMillan offered no excuses, however, and instead pinned the loss on his team's execution. "We've got to control the tempo," he said. "Most of their points were coming in the paint. You've got to control the ball, keep them out of the paint and force them to shoot over you." Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis combined to score 53 points and had Seattle's only three 3-pointers. Radmanovic, who along with Allen and Lewis entered the day among the top eight in the league in 3-pointers made, was 2-of-13 from the floor. "We relied on the 3-point shot too much tonight and unfortunately those shots didn't go in," Radmanovic said. "And on the other end of the floor, they took us apart and basically did what they wanted. They had too many points in the paint and in transition, and that's what happens." Allen agreed with McMillan's take on the loss. "Defensively we kind of just let them have pretty much what they wanted and by the fourth quarter I think we dug ourselves too deep a hole, and we really couldn't get out of it," he said. The Suns extended their winning streak to three games while the Sonics had their three-game run snapped. Seattle forward Nick Collison left the game early in the second quarter after suffering a broken nose when he was elbowed by Phoenix reserve center Steven Hunter. Collison will be re-evaluated Monday and is listed as day-to-day.
