Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers' depth has been their trademark in recent seasons. Tonight, the Phoenix Suns' bench was on display.

Tony Delk scored 22 points to lead a strong effort from the reserves and Shawn Marion added 21 and 10 rebounds as Phoenix opened its home slate with a 108-82 rout of the Trail Blazers.

Delk scored nine points and Rodney Rogers added 12 in the second quarter as the Suns' built a 64-45 halftime lead, with the reserves accounting for 40 points.

"Their bench just killed us. In the second quarter, they came in and dusted us," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "They beat us to everything, it looked like our guys were not even in shape. We didn't respond to so many situations that were right in front of us that the only reason I can think of is that our guys were tired and we weren't getting enough oxygen to our brains. It was embarrassing."

Marion started strongly with nine first-quarter points and added 10 and seven boards in the second half as the Suns won their fifth straight home opener and bounced back from a 96-94 opening-night loss at Golden State.

The Suns' reserves outscored Portland's bench, 57-33.

"We came out and played extremely well," Delk said. "We had a tough game against Golden State and the guys came back and played good defense. We had a lot of open shots."

"Tony Delk isn't bashful, that's one of the reasons we like him so much," Suns coach Scott Skiles said. "If he makes it, he'll shoot again. If he misses, he keeps shooting as well."

Shawn Kemp scored 21 of those bench points for Portland, which is 0-2 for the first time since the 1993-94 campaign. Kemp made 7-of-11 shots from the floor and grabbed seven rebounds after netting just four points on 2-of-9 shooting in an opening-night loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Rogers, winner of the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award in 1999-2000, contributed eight points during an 18-9 run that gave Phoenix a 19-point halftime bulge. The Suns shot 68 percent (15-of-22) in the period while the Blazers made only 5-of-14 attempts and committed seven turnovers.

Portland coughed up the ball eight times in the third quarter and and the Suns took full advantage, building an 83-56 cushion on a dunk by Marion with 1:48 left.

The Blazers scored the next 14 points as Steve Smith scored eight straight points to end the quarter. Rasheed Wallace opened the final quarter with six straight points, cutting the deficit to 83-69 with 9:54 to go.

But Marion sandwiched a running jumper and a layup around a 3-pointer by Delk and Cliff Robinson added a layup of his own as Phoenix built the lead back up 23 points with 8:28 to go.

Portland never got closer than 18 points the rest of the way.

Jason Kidd collected 16 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds while Rogers added 16 and Daniel Santiago chipped in 11 off the bench.

"Jason was phenomenal, he's such a unique player," Skiles said. "He caused a lot of turnovers by getting a hand on the ball. Jason might be the fastest guy in the world with a basketball in his hand on a fast break."

The Suns converted half their shots from the field (41-of-82), including 8-of-19 from 3-point range. Delk was 5-of-6 from behind the arc.

Wallace finished with 20 points and nine boards and Smith had 13 for Portland, which committed 26 turnovers.

"We turned the ball over, they got all the loose balls, we allowed them to get easy baskets," Pippen said. "All that combined gave them an opportunity to open the game up. They're a high-powered team. You aren't going to get back in the game against a team like that. They were definitely a step faster than us tonight."
