Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Golden State Warriors suffered through the worst fourth quarter in franchise history, scoring just six points as the Phoenix Suns rallied for a 102-89 victory.

Golden State's output in the fourth period tied an NBA-record low and broke the club mark of seven points scored in the second quarter of a 102-74 loss to Portland on New Year's Day 1983.

In the final period, the Warriors shot 2-of-21 from the field, including 0-of-10 from 3-point range. They also were 2-of-5 from the foul line. Golden State had scored nine points in the fourth quarter on two prior occassions.

"You start with good defense by Phoenix," said Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo. We missed some good shots. But for the most part, we didn't execute very well. Our shot selection was not as good as it had been. We didn't get any offensive rebounds in the (fourth quarter) until late."

The six-point fourth quarter tied the record set by the Detroit Pistons at Orlando on December 7, 1993.

Trailing 83-76 entering the period, the Suns scored the first 11 points and opened an 87-83 lead on Rex Chapman's free throw with 5:52 left. Clifford Robinson scored six straight points during the spurt and finished with 20.

Tom Gugliotta also scored 20 points for the Suns, who exacted revenge after suffering a 94-90 loss at Golden State on Friday. Phoenix has won three of its last four.

"I don't know if our defense was tremendous or we were so bad in the other parts of the game that it looked tremendous," said Gugliotta. "In the fourth, we gave them one shot and it was a shot with a hand in their face. We rebounded the ball and it ignited our break."

Tony Delk scored 18 points and John Starks and Jason Caffey added 14 apiece for Golden State, which lost for just the second time in eight games.

"It was a lackluster performance in the fourth quarter," Starks said. "As a team we have to learn from that. We had the lead going into the quarter. We had to be aggressive in the fourth and take it to the basket."

Jason Kidd tallied the first four points of the fourth on a 17-foot jumper and two free throws. Robinson nailed a short jumper, gave the Suns the lead for good with a layup off Chapman's feed, and pushed the advantage to 86-83 by throwing down a dunk with 6:33 left. Chapman converted the second of two free throws, capping the 11-0 spurt.

"We've been sitting back and letting those guys pretty much do what they want," said Robinson. "We've got to play that kind of defense for 48 minutes. We know it's hard work, but that's how you win games."

After a layup by Donyell Marshall brought the Warriors within 87-85, Danny Manning ignited a 9-0 run with two short jumpers. Kidd followed with a three-point play and then found Manning for a layup that made it 96-85 with 2:35 left.

"It was a pride factor because we were getting embarrassed and we were tired of it," said Kidd.

John Starks hit two free throws with 2:16 to play, but the Suns scored six straight points as Gugliotta hit two free throws, added a layup moments later, and Robinson added two from the line with 22 seconds remaining.

The six fourth-quarter points were a season low for a Suns' opponent. The San Antonio Spurs scored eight points in the fourth against Phoenix in a 79-76 loss on February 17.

"Once again I thought that was two completely different games by the same team," said Suns coach Danny Ainge. "That seems to be our trend recently. It's frustrating and it's gonna be harmful when we start playing better teams."

Marshall came off the bench to accumulate 11 points and 11 rebounds and Chris Mills added 10 points for Golden State, which shot 39 percent (35-of-90), including connecting on just 6-of-24 from 3-point range. Caffey grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds as the Warriors built a 54-40 advantage on the boards.

Kidd scored 17 points while dishing out 11 assists and Gugliotta and Robinson each grabbed seven rebounds for the Suns, who shot 47 percent (34-of-72). Phoenix committed just nine turnovers and was 29-of-35 from the foul line.

The Warriors took their biggest lead of the game with 5:33 left in the third quarter on a layup by Chris Mills that made it 79-64. But Phoenix closed the period with a 12-4 run to pull within seven points on two free throws from Gugliotta with 30 seconds remaining.
