Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns celebrated a little bit too soon. An alert Donnell Harvey threw a length-of-the-court pass to Ryan Bowen, who made a layup just before the buzzer as the Denver Nuggets stole an 80-79 victory over the Suns. "When I saw Ryan running downcourt, throwing a hand up, I knew he was by himself," Harvey said. "When I threw it, it was right on the money and he got the layup for the win. I used to play quarterback in high school, so it was kind of neat to have a flashback." "That's a tough way to lose a game," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "Getting back in transition has been an Achilles'heel for us all year. I kept preaching to our guys that we were going to get burned, and we got burned tonight. We started celebrating a little bit too early, and they took off." The Nuggets snapped their NBA record for consecutive games with fewer than 80 points and have posted back-to-back victories for the first time since a three-game winning streak from April 12-16. "That was instinct," Nuggets coach Jeff Bzdelik said of the final play. "In fact, I was trying to call a timeout, so I'm glad they didn't listen to me. I'd fine myself if they had called a timeout. (Harvey) was right on the money." "That's a TD, for real," Denver forward Juwan Howard added. "The Broncos need to sign Donnell Harvey." On Friday, Denver defeated the Los Angeles Clippers, 72-70, when James Posey made an 18-foot jumper at the buzzer after an inbounds pass from Harvey. In this one, the Nuggets took a 78-76 lead with 40 seconds remaining on an alley-oop layup by Harvey. Stephon Marbury made just 1-of-2 free throws 12 seconds later, but the Suns got a chance at victory when Kenny Satterfield missed a layup and Harvey a tip with 5.7 seconds to play. After a timeout, Marbury missed a banked floater from the right side of the paint, but Shawn Marion swooped in and dunked with one hand with six-tenths of a second to play. But the Suns forgot to get back on defense and the lefthanded Harvey winged the ball to Bowen, whose layup just beat the final buzzer. After a mandatory instant replay review, the referees said the ball was released in time. "I looked up and saw we had 0.6 seconds," Bowen said. "I wasn't sure whether or not we had a timeout, so I just took off running down the court and D-Harv saw me about the 3-point line. I knew he was going to throw it to me so I wanted to get as close to the basket as I can so I don't have to take a shot. I can actually get a layup in, and it just worked out for us." "I thought the buzzer went off," Marion said. "I thought it ws over with and everybody turned around and saw the ball up in the air, and everybody sprinted back. It's a hard one." Posey scored 20 points and Howard had 16 for the Nuggets, who improved to 4-10. "I've never had a win like that," Howard said. "But you know what, we truly deserve that because we've been working our butts off. Tonight, like last night, hard work is definitely paying off." Marion contributed 19 points and Marbury 13 and a season-high 14 assists for Phoenix, which has lost three in a row. Midway through the fourth quarter, Denver went on a 12-0 run, taking a 69-67 lead on a jumper by Satterfield, who scored the final six points of the burst. "We're a young team and we're battling," Bzdelik said. "Our team shows great character, great passion, great heart, great enthusiasm. For them to battle through this and begin to reap the reward of working on their execution, it's big." Phoenix led 23-18 after one quarter and 39-31 at halftime. Denver got within 58-53 entering the final period before the Suns extended their advantage to 67-57 on a layup by Bo Outlaw with 9:17 to play. "Of course, you're going to say we did too much celebrating now because the game is over," Marbury said. "We thought we won the game, but it's never over until the horn sounds, and they made a great play by not calling a quick timeout. They just pretty much went with it, which is the best way to get you, too." "They just ran right past our guys, past two or three of our guys, and it went in," Johnson added. "Hopefully, we can learn from that."
