Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- As the Phoenix Suns continue to rise, the Los Angeles Lakers continue to fall. Shawn Marion scored 23 points to lead a balanced attack as the Suns turned back a handful of rallies by the Lakers in a 107-93 victory, their eighth straight home win. "They made a run at us, so we kept our composure, kept our lead and just made a run at them again," said Marion, who led five Suns in double figures. The Suns have been the most surprising team in the NBA this season, returning to prominence after missing the playoffs last year for the first time since 1988. The three-time defending champion Lakers have been the most disappointing team as they find themselves struggling for a playoff spot. "It's surprising to some people, but to us, we feel like we can go out and play with anyone," Suns guard Stephon Marbury said. "I'm kind of surprised at seeing the Lakers not play as well as they normally do, but it happens." The Suns had yet to face the Lakers before a home-and-home series this weekend that could be a measuring stick of how much each team has changed. Los Angeles presented not much of a test for Phoenix, which improved to 15-3 at America West Arena. "We have them tomorrow night and we've got to be ready because it will be a more physical game," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. This is a good barometer because they really came in here and really wanted to win," guard Penny Hardaway said. Marbury had 17 points and 10 assists and rookie Amare Stoudemire added 17 and eight for the Suns, who dared the Lakers to beat them from outside. The strategy worked as Los Angeles shot 2-of-21 from 3-point range. "Our first priority was to have them beat us from the outside," Johnson said. "Kobe (Bryant) is capable of doing it, but you need to let those other guys try to beat you." Bryant scored 37 points on 15-of-32 shooting but missed all eight of his 3-pointers. Rick Fox was 0-of-6 from the arc. Shaquille O'Neal had 25 points and nine rebounds for the Lakers, who were playing for the first time in six days and fell to 4-14 on the road. "It was just a terrible shooting night for us," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "The fact that we climbed back into the game three times in the second half and still couldn't do anything is indicative of where we're at in the season right now." The Suns used a 14-0 run to take the lead for good in the second quarter. A pretty driving layup by Marbury capped the burst at 38-25 with 7:10 left. The Lakers fought back to 54-53 on a dunk by Bryant with 7:52 remaining in the third quarter. Phoenix's Penny Hardaway answered with a layup, Stoudemire and Marion dunked, and Stoudemire made a layup for a 62-53 advantage with 5 1/2 minutes to play. Two free throws by Bryant made it 62-59 before Phoenix closed the quarter with a 9-2 run to open a 10-point lead. LA got no closer than nine points in the final period. "We made a couple of runs, but they made the plays in crucial situations, got to loose balls in crucial situations and won the ballgame," Bryant said. The Lakers repeatedly fouled and called timeouts down the stretch in a futile attempt to get back in the game. That did not sit kindly with the Suns. "This way Phil can say we took (42) foul shots, even though most of them were in the last few minutes," Johnson said. "We got mired in some disputed calls," Jackson said. "It was a poorly officiated game. It was a terribly officiated game by some referees that are pretty good officials." Bo Outlaw scored a season-high 12 points and Hardaway added 11 for Phoenix, which shot 47 percent (37-of-79). The Lakers shot 41 percent (37-of-91).
