Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Rookie Amare Stoudemire had an expected drop-off, but it was a lift from Penny Hardaway that proved to be the difference for the Phoenix Suns. Hardaway scored 11 of his 17 points in the third quarter and Stoudemire had another double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Suns extended their home winning streak to seven games with a 96-78 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Stoudemire came off the best effort of his young career with 38 points and 14 rebounds in Monday's 104-98 loss at Minnesota that ended a five-game winning streak. Hardaway had just six points in 23 minutes. But it was Hardaway who sparked a pair of runs in the third quarter that helped Phoenix establish control. Hardaway's 3-pointer gave the Suns the lead for good and Stoudemire fed Shawn Marion for a dunk and a 51-46 advantage with just over five minutes left in the period. The 76ers responded with a basket by Greg Buckner before Hardaway drilled 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to spark a 14-3 spurt. Hardaway's third 3-pointer of the quarter capped the burst and made it 65-51 with 2:51 to go. "When I hit the first one, that got my confidence up to take the other two," Hardaway said. "They went down and pushed us out on the lead. We play well at home, we have that confidence when we have a team on our heels, we can push away from them." Philadelphia's Allen Iverson made just 4-of-17 shots for 12 points, barely extending his streak of scoring in double figures to 152 games. In the final minute, a live rat was thrown onto the America West Arena court, lying still while its tail twitched until it was swept off the court. The Sixers also saw a rat thrown on the court in the second quarter of a loss to Utah on Saturday. "They seem to be following us, I guess," 76ers point guard Eric Snow said. "I don't know why. I hope they don't start a trend. They need to stop it because they're throwing them up so high, somebody's going to get hit and somebody's going to get hurt." That may have stunk, but so did Philadelphia's play from a pair of key players. In addition to Iverson's struggles, Snow made just 3-of-12 shots for seven points. The assignment of guarding Iverson went primarily to Stephon Marbury, who did a strong job shadowing the three-time scoring champion. Marbury sacrificed his offense and still finished with 12 points and 10 assists. "Great team effort again. Steph did a fantastic job on Iverson as well as our other guys helping out, being in position to help," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "Steph with 12 points, 10 assists, two turnovers - that was big." Iverson credited Phoenix's Bo Outlaw for guarding him well off screens. "I think Bo Outlaw changed the whole game defensively," Iverson said. "It was hard for me to get any types of one-on-ones because he kept shadowing me. Every time I came off a screen, he was right there." The 76ers were hammered on the boards by Phoenix's athletic frontcourt, 45-33. Unheralded Suns center Scott Williams, a former Sixer, grabbed seven rebounds in 15 minutes, more than any player for Philadelphia. Stoudemire had three dunks and 11 points in the first quarter as Phoenix took a 23-16 lead. The 6-10 power forward, who has 12 double-doubles, is averaging 12.4 points and 8.4 rebounds - numbers that compare favorably to Minnesota's Kevin Garnett in his rookie season. "Rebounding and defense are what I take pride in," Stoudemire said. "Everything else kind of comes for itself. I've been dunking ever since sixth grade, so that's something I've got a little swagger for, so it's all good." Marion led Phoenix with 24 points, 16 in the second half. Marion bounced back to make 7-of-10 shots over the final 24 minutes after connecting on just 3-of-10 in the opening half. "We came in here (at halftime) and had a little speech, and everybody put the pressure of the first half on me," Marion said. "I said, 'OK, I embarrassed myself,' and we came out there with energy in the second half and did what we had to do to get the win." Kenny Thomas turned in his best game with Philadelphia, totaling 20 points, seven assists and six rebounds. The 76ers also got solid play from their bench as Aaron McKie scored 13 points and Buckner added 12. Philadelphia played without second-leading scorer and top rebounder Keith Van Horn, who missed his first game with the flu. Van Horn, who missed a pair of clutch free throws in a loss here last season with the New Jersey Nets, is averaging 15.3 points and 8.5 rebounds.
