Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Just because their leading scorer and rebounder went down, the Phoenix Suns weren't going to allow the Los Angeles Clippers to rally. Shawn Marion sustained a left ankle injury early in the third quarter, but Stephon Marbury scored 26 points and rookie Casey Jacobsen added a season-high 19 to lead the Suns to a 108-95 victory over the Clippers. "Every win is a big win for us," Marbury said. "We can't go out and half-step. Then, with Shawn going down, we might lose him for a game or two. That's going to be tough, but that's an opportunity for someone else." Marion, who averages 20.6 points and 10.0 rebounds per game, scored 14 points before rolling his ankle just over a minute into the second half. X-Rays were negative, but Marion did not return and will be re-examined Saturday. "I know I rolled it real hard to the left and it hurt," Marion said. "It's like a real bad sprain on the outer part of my ankle. I can't bend it a certain way." Rookie Amare Stoudemire contributed 16 points and Penny Hardaway had 13 and 10 assists for Phoenix, which has won four in a row overall for the second time this month and extended their home winning streak to six games. The surprising Suns have taken eight of nine overall and 14 of 17 contests at America West Arena this season. Phoenix led 55-46 when Marion went down, but Andre Miller's basket pulled Los Angeles within seven points with 10:34 remaining in the quarter. Marbury drew a fifth foul on Clippers' leading scorer and rebounder Elton Brand's on a driving layup and converted a three-play play with 4:52 to go in the period. He scored again to make it 72-60. "Stephon is playing well and coming off the screens. It's hard to guard him," said Brand, who missed two games with a strained right calf. "I got into foul trouble tonight, got to keep myself out there. I kind of hurt the team that way and wasn't able to be out there to help stop their runs." Two free throws by Jacobsen gave Phoenix an 84-64 cushion with 39 seconds left in the period. He went 6-of-9 from the field and hit five 3-pointers off the bench. "When one of your top soldiers goes, you've got to all rally around," Jacobsen said. "You have to fill the void the best you can. There's no possible way we will ever fill the void if Shawn is not in the lineup. Our coaches have prepared us well. We stuck to our game plan even without Shawn. Our defensive game plan, in particular, we made them take hard shots." Brand tied a season high with 29 points and Quentin Richardson chipped in 16 for the Clippers, who have dropped three of their last four. "We were playing pretty solid, we were all right," Brand said. "We had chances in the first half, chances in the second half." "Brand played well, I knew he would play well, I didn't have any doubt," Los Angeles coach Alvin Gentry added. "I was surprised he only ended up with eight rebounds." Los Angeles fell to 5-8 on the road and 6-12 against Western Conference foes. The Clippers have lost 16 of the last 21 meetings with Phoenix. The Suns never trailed and the game was tied just once at 2-2 before Marbury's 16-foot jumper capped an 8-2 spurt with 8:45 left in the first quarter. Phoenix was 7-of-10 from the field and took a 17-9 lead on a 3-pointer by Marion. It tied a season high with 33 points in the opening period. Los Angeles used a 13-5 run to pull within 41-35 with 6:39 left in the second, but the Suns brought a 53-44 advantage into the locker room. Phoenix had its largest lead, 88-66, in the opening minute of the fourth quarter as Hardaway hit a 20-foot jumper. The Clippers never seriously threatened the rest of the way. "We didn't make the shots we usually make down the stretch," Richardson said. "It may appear that their plan was working, but it also had something to do with taking Mike (Olowakandi) away and us being off. ... It worked perfect." The Suns shot 51 percent (44-of-87) from the field and improved to 5-1 when scoring at least 100 points. Miller had 12 points and 10 assists and Corey Maggette - back after missing 14 games following knee surgery - scored 11 points for the Clippers, who shot 45 percent (38-of-84) and had a 46-38 edge on the boards.
