Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns began the second half of the season with a rude awakening from the Los Angeles Clippers. Andre Miller and Elton Brand scored six points apiece in a decisive fourth-quarter run as the Clippers rallied for a 107-106 victory over the Suns. All signs pointed to a Phoenix victory as Los Angeles came in with a four-game losing streak and 17 wins - the third-lowest total in the Western Conference. Phoenix had 13 wins in its previous 14 home games and its 20-4 home record was second in the West behind Dallas. "Certainly a disappointing loss, especially after winning three in a row and after the way we were playing at home," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "We scored 106 points, certainly good enough to win, but when you can't stop anyone, when we allow them to shoot 53 percent from the field, you aren't going to beat many teams in this league." "Those guys made big plays at the end of the game and we didn't step our defense up when we were supposed to," Phoenix guard Stephon Marbury added. "They were the better team tonight at the end of the game." The Suns still appeared headed to a win with a 94-88 advantage and 7:22 remaining. But the Clippers responded with a 15-2 run and took a 103-96 lead with 2:41 to play. "We need to go out there and play hard every night," Brand said. "Even though we don't have a good record from the first half, it's important not to lose sight that the season isn't over and that we have a chance to come back and make something out of it." "I thought we did a good job of continuing to attack for the entire game," Los Angeles coach Alvin Gentry added. "The big thing that fueled our 15-2 run was defensive stops. You've got to have stops." Brand finished with 29 points and Miller scored 10 of his 19 in the fourth quarter as the Clippers ended a six-game road skid. Phoenix pulled within 105-103 as rookie Amare Stoudemire and Shawn Marion combined for four free throws. But with a chance to tie, Marion put up a jumper with Brand in his face. His 18-footer with three seconds left was short and Miller sealed the win with a pair of free throws. "That was the play we were looking for," Johnson said. "He had Brand on him. I'll take Shawn in that matchup anytime." The Suns shot 51 percent (42-of-82) from the field and were 10-of-17 from the arc. But they went to the foul line just 15 times and were outscored in the paint, 62-34. In the decisive quarter, the Clippers outscored the Suns, 30-25, and shot 62 percent (13-of-21). They trailed 81-77 entering the final period after an 8-1 run chipped away at an 11-point deficit. Phoenix trailed 59-58 at halftime but outscored Los Angeles, 21-11, over the first 8:05 of the third quarter. The Suns took an 80-69 lead on a 17-foot jumper by Marbury. But a turnover by Marbury was converted into a layup by Lamar Odom. Brand and Miller also made layups and Phoenix imploded, committing three turnovers and missing its final six shots of the quarter. "The only thing I can blame it on is our defense," Suns guard Joe Johnson said. "Our defense stunk. I feel like we didn't play good team defense and I don't think we played good individual defense, either." Marbury led the Suns with 33 points and Marion added 21 but scored just four in the fourth quarter. Los Angeles also overcame a double-digit deficit in the second quarter as a 3-pointer by Marion made it 44-34 with 8:46 remaining.
