Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Jason Kidd's domestic dispute gave the Phoenix Suns their own problems at home.

One night after his arrest for hitting his wife, Kidd sat out and was missed as the Suns lost at home to the Golden State Warriors for the first time in nearly six years, 103-95.

On Thursday, Kidd was arrested at his home in nearby Paradise Valley after his wife, Joumana, made a 911 call. The All-Star guard admitted to police that he had hit his wife and will be arraigned next week on the misdemeanor charge.

An embarrassed Kidd faced the media Friday afternoon and opted not to play in order to focus on his family situation. The Suns clearly were not the same without their best player and the NBA leader in assists and triple-doubles.

"It's unfortunate it happened," Suns forward Rodney Rogers said. "Jason has to deal with it. We're here to support him."

Elliot Perry started for Kidd and was ineffective, missing all four of his shots. Shooting guard Mario Elie was ejected in the fourth quarter and reserve guard Tony Delk scored nine points.

The Suns were sloppy without Kidd, committing 24 turnovers that led to 29 points. They fell to 18-19 without Kidd since he joined the team midway through the 1996-97 season.

"We had our point guard out there, it just wasn't our starting point guard," Suns coach Scott Skiles said.

"I think their not being used to playing without Jason really affected them getting the ball where they really wanted it," Warriors coach Dave Cowens said.

Phoenix also was without forward Tom Gugliotta, who returned to New York to be with his ill mother. But Skiles said that was no excuse for his team's poor effort.

"It goes without saying, both (Kidd and Gugliotta) are great players," Skiles said. "But I suppose if I said that, I would be discounting Adonal Foyle, Danny Fortson. Erick Dampier, Larry Hughes and Chris Mills didn't play for them either, which is basically their starting five. I think that pretty much sums it up."

"I don't feel sorry for them," Warriors guard Bob Sura said. "Nobody feels sorry for us and we've had guys missing out there all year."

Antawn Jamison collected 24 points and 13 rebounds and rookie Marc Jackson had 20 and a season-high 16 for the Warriors, who ended an 11-game skid in the Valley of the Sun dating to March 23, 1995.

"It's definitely a big win for us," Jamison said. "It's been frustrating because we've been putting ourselves in positions to win a lot of games but we've always been coming up short. Tonight, they didn't have Kidd and he controls so much of how successful they are and what they ddo. We definitely felt like we could get it."

Cliff Robinson scored 30 points and Rogers added 23 for the Suns, who are 5-6 at America West Arena following a 10-1 start. Phoenix has lost two of three to Golden State this season.

The Suns used a 13-2 run and took a 77-74 lead on a pair of free throws by Rogers with 10:35 to play. But the Warriors answered with a 20-3 burst during which Elie unraveled. He was hit with a pair of technicals 13 seconds apart and threw his headband to the floor before leaving the court.

"They're (referees) having a bad year, that's why everybody's getting fined," Elie said. "If they're going to take a grand from me, I should at least deserve it."

Jamison and Sura scored five points each and Jackson added four as Golden State opened a 94-80 lead with 5:17 left. Phoenix got no closer than six points thereafter.

Sura scored 18 points and Mookie Blaylock added 16 and seven assists for the Warriors, who shot 44 percent (35-of-79) from the field and held a 46-36 rebounding advantage.

Shawn Marion had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Suns, who shot 49 percent (37-of-75) and were outscored 31-15 at the line.

Jamison and Jackson scored 10 points each in the first half to offset 20 by Robinson and give Golden State a 52-47 lead.
