Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Joe Johnson and the Phoenix Suns are streaking toward the playoffs. Johnson scored 18 of his 26 points in the first quarter as the Suns recorded a franchise record-tying 62nd win, cruising to a 128-114 triumph over the Denver Nuggets, who are glad to be done with them this season. Johnson made 10-of-14 shots from the floor overall, including 6-of-8 3-pointers. "It was like the basket was as big as you want it to be and just about anything you threw up it was going to go in," Johnson said. "That might be one of my best quarters. I have to admit it was a lot of fun. My shot was falling and the guys were finding me." Amare Stoudemire also chipped in 26 points and Shawn Marion collected 18 and nine rebounds for the Suns (62-19), who secured home-court advantage throughout the playoffs when San Antonio lost at Memphis earlier Monday. "What these guys have done all year, they just keep playing," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "I think the road record is the most amazing thing. For an NBA team on the road over .500 is an achievement and we are at 31-9 right now. They all have unbelievable nerves and all want the ball at the end, and all of them make big shots." Phoenix - which went 62-20 in the 1992-93 season, when it reached the NBA Finals - will face the eighth-seeded Grizzlies in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. The teams split their four meetings this season. "They have played us tough all four games," D'Antoni said. "They have 10 guys they keep rolling in and Pau Gasol will be a handful, but it is a lot about us. If we play the top of our game, we will be fine." "With the things that we are doing and the players we have, it is hard to stop us," Stoudemire said. "In a seven-game series, it is going to be harder. Memphis has a pretty decent squad and defensively they are pretty good." Denver (48-33) is locked into the seventh spot and will face the second-seeded Spurs in the first round. The teams also split their four encounters. "San Antonio is a similar penetration type of team that we played tonight, but not as good a 3-point shooting team," Nuggets coach George Karl said. "Tim Duncan is probably one of the best players the game and how rusty he is will be interesting." The Nuggets have lost back-to-back games after winning 10 straight. They have gone 24-4 since the All-Star break, but three of the losses were to the Suns. "I am concerned about losing - anyone would be concerned," said Denver forward Carmelo Anthony, whose team has lost consecutive games under Karl for the first time. "The way we lost tonight was embarrassing. Seventy-five points in the first half, that is a little too much." In this one, Johnson helped the Suns jump out to a whopping 44-25 advantage after the first quarter, and they led comfortably thereafter. Phoenix held a 75-57 cushion at the break and 106-86 after three quarters. The Suns set season highs in points after one quarter and in the first half. Anthony scored a season-high 36 points and Kenyon Martin added 22 and 11 rebounds for Denver, which allowed Phoenix to shoot 57 percent (46-of-81), including 14-of-27 from 3-point range. Nuggets forward Eduardo Najera suffered a fourth metacarpal fracture in his right hand late in the game when he was hit was driving to the basket. No foul was called on the play. His status for playoffs will be determined later in this week.
