Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Things appear to be back to normal for Jason Kidd and the Phoenix Suns.

In his first home game since his arrest for assaulting his wife, Kidd was greeted with an ovation and collected 17 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds to lead the Suns to a 101-92 victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies.

Kidd was arrested at his home January 18 and admitted to hitting his wife, Joumana. He was charged with misdemeanor assault and took some time away from the team to mend his marriage.

"You never know how the crowd's going to respond, and they responded in a positive way tonight," Kidd said. "I heard it all. Sometimes you expect the worst and sometimes it doesn't take place and I'd just like to thank the fans for that.

"My job is to play basketball, and off the court with the situation, I've said to just leave it alone and let it go, and let me and Joumana work on it -- which we are -- and we'll get through this."

The Suns went 1-3 without Kidd, who returned midway through a six-game road trip. They lost their first two games with their All-Star point guard, who was jeered in Boston, but notched a 95-82 victory at Atlanta on Monday.

"Boston was tough," Kidd admitted. "Basketball-wise, everything is back to normal. My private life, we're working on it."

When Kidd was introduced, the crowd of 16,502 at America West Arena gave him a warm greeting and the loudest cheers of any Suns player. The 6-4 guard responded with one of his patented all-around performances.

"It goes to show that they know it's a personal thing," Suns forward Cliff Robinson said. "Basketball is basketball, but he and his wife have to solve their problems."

"I don't know that I had an impression when he was introduced," Suns coach Scott Skiles said. "I had the clipboard in my hand and I was ready to diagram the first play. I wasn't paying a whole lot of attention. I guess I would have noticed had it been a little more negative."

Clifford Robinson scored 25 points and Tony Delk added 18 off the bench for Phoenix, which has taken eight consecutive home meetings from Vancouver.

Mike Bibby, Kidd's counterpart, had 26 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the Grizzlies, who have lost eight of nine overall and 13 straight on the road. Vancouver has not won in the United States since a 96-87 victory at Boston on November 26.

"I'm really proud of these guys," said Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe, whose team's last three losses had come by a combined 87 points. "They played their hearts out and hung in with a good ballclub and actually gave ourselves a chance to win the game."

Phoenix held an 87-83 lead before consecutive baskets by Michael Dickerson and rookie Stromile Swift pulled Vancouver into a tie with 5:36 left. Dickerson had missed his first 11 shots while Swift, seeing increased playing time with the trade of Othella Harrington, collected nine points and eight rebounds.

The Suns responded with six straight points to take the lead for good. Rodney Rogers made a shot, Kidd had a layup and Shawn Marion sank a jumper for a 93-87 advantage with 3:05 remaining.

The Grizzlies got within 95-92 in the final minute, but Bibby missed an open layup and Rogers made two free throws to seal it with 25 seconds to go.

"We fought hard to come back," Bibby said. "There were times we needed plays and didn't make them. If we keep playing hard, good things will come."

Marion collected 14 points and 11 rebounds and rookie center Jake Tsakalidis added a season-high 13 and eight for the Suns, who shot 50 percent (42-of-84) from the field and made 16-of-18 free throws.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 17 points and Grant Long added 13 for the Grizzlies, who shot 42.5 percent (34-of-80) and hit 19-of-22 from the line but committed 19 turnovers.

Bibby scored 18 points in the first half but the Grizzlies still trailed, 59-47. Two free throws by Tsakalidis gave Phoenix a 65-53 advantage before Abdur-Rahim scored six points in a 15-2 spurt, including a layup that gave Vancouver a 68-67 lead with 4:01 left in the third quarter.
