Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Even with nothing left to play for, the Phoenix Suns had no problem disposing of the hapless Golden State Warriors in the season finale for both teams.

Cliff Robinson scored 23 points as the Suns ran past the Warriors, 99-88, after learning that they no longer could gain home-court advantage in the opening round of the playoffs.

The Suns (53-29) knew soon after the opening tip that San Antonio had knocked off the league-leading Los Angeles Lakers, 103-98, at the Alamodome. The fourth-seeded Spurs (53-29) will host Phoenix in the first round of the playoffs by virtue of a superior conference record.

"We had an opportunity to secure home-court advantage and we didn't do it," Phoenix coach Scott Skiles said. "Now we have to go and try to win the series without it, try to win one there and that gives us home court."

"For us to worry about those guys (San Antonio) winning and losing when we had the opportunity to do it ourselves," Robinson said. "It makes no sense to do that."

Perhaps disheartened by the news, the Suns fell behind 23-17 after one period but pulled within 46-45 at the half. Todd Day scored six points during a decisive 12-1 fourth-quarter run that put Phoenix ahead to stay, 83-73, with 8:06 to play.

Penny Hardaway scored 17 points for the Suns, who swept four games from the Warriors this season and have won the last six meetings overall.

"It's kinda disheartening going into the playoffs," Hardaway said. "It's a tougher game to get up for because we felt San Antonio was going to beat the Lakers and we really squandered an opportunity to have home court for the playoffs. So coming into this game we weren't focused, but we knew we had to try and play well this game and try to carry it into the playoffs. So it wasn't really a lot of emotions out there."

Larry Hughes scored 20 points for Golden State (19-63), which ended the season on a four-game losing streak.

"It'll be a lot better next year," Hughes said. "We'll have a fresh start. I know what I need to do and the team knows what they need to do. I need to become a go-to player. I need to become a better rebounder and shooter. It's not going to happen in one summer, but it's going to be a good start."

Day finished with 11 points and Toby Bailey added 10 off the bench for Phoenix, which shot 51 percent (39-of-76), held a 51-38 rebounding advantage and overcame 29 turnovers.

Mookie Blaylock scored 14 points and rookie Vonteego Cummings and Mark Davis added 11 apiece for the Warriors, who shot 38 percent (32-of-84) and outscored the Suns, 22-14, at the line.
