Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- By the time Rasheed Wallace got going, Stephon Marbury was too far in front. Marbury scored 33 points and Shawn Marion came up big in the fourth quarter, lifting the Phoenix Suns to their second straight impressive win, a 98-92 triumph over the Portland Trail Blazers. Coming off Tuesday's victory at San Antonio in which he scored 35 points and missed just two shots from the floor while playing all 48 minutes, Marbury had another effective game against the Trail Blazers, who usually present opposing guards problems with their size. Marbury used his quickness against the Blazers to get to the basket, finishing 12-of-22 from the field and making all six of his foul shots in 46 minutes. He scored 15 points in the first half, helping the Suns to a 49-41 lead. "We needed them. These are very important games," Marbury said. "There's no time for fatigue. Coach is stressing that. We've just got to go out and play the way we've been playing for the remainder of the season if we want to make the playoffs." Wallace - the Blazers' leading scorer - went scoreless in the opening half. The volatile forward came on to finish with 22 points but it was not enough. "We knew he wasn't gonna go scoreless the whole game so we wanted him to get the ball," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "The first half was slow for him, then he stepped up." Marion saved his best for the fourth quarter, when he scored 12 of his 22 points, including 6-of-6 at the line. As a team, the Suns went 14-of-15 from the line over the final 12 minutes. The Suns, who won for just the second time in their last six home games, remained two games in front of Houston for the Western Conference's final playoff spot. Despite facing a rested team, the Suns never trailed through the first three quarters and held a 73-67 entering the final period. Tom Gugliotta opened the fourth quarter with a basket for the Suns before the Blazers reeled off the next seven points, capped by Antonio Daniels' 3-pointer, to pull within 75-74 with 8:37 remaining. Gugliotta, who recently returned from the injured list, scored 12 points to lead a strong effort by Phoenix's bench. He went 5-of-5 from the field as five Suns reserves combined to go 13-of-19 from the field. "To come out and be productive is what you strive for," Gugliotta said. "Coming back from injuries you tend to get impatient. Everyone tells you it's going to take a few games, but when you get out there you want to have a positive connection right away. It didn't happen right away, so tonight it was good." One of the reserves for the Suns was Penny Hardaway, who was activated from the injured list earlier in the day. He had one basket in 15 minutes. "Obviously, this was a huge win for us," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "If you go down and look at our bench, it's certainly strengthened by getting Penny (Hardaway), Scott (Williams), and Gugliotta back." A layup by Ruben Patterson, who finished with 12 points, gave the Blazers their first lead of the contest at 78-77 with 6:19 to play. Marbury and Patterson traded baskets before Marion gave the Suns the lead for good with 4 1/2 minutes remaining when he drilled a 3-pointer from the top of the key and drew a foul on Patterson. He hit the free throw for a 83-80 lead. Daniels hit a 3-pointer with 53 seconds to go, pulling the Blazers within 88-86. But Marion hit an open jumper 22 seconds later, and the Suns made all eight of their free throws, including 6-of-6 by Marion, to hold on. "We put together two good wins," Marion said. "We finished it off tonight. We won last night in San Antonio, and closed it out tonight. We had a good team coming in here, and held them off." "We had our opportunities but they came up with the plays and made the shots when they had to," Blazers center Dale Davis said. "It was a bang-bang game. We have to sharpen some things up down the stretch." Phoenix, which beat Portand for the third time in as many tries this season, shot 50 percent (36-of-72) and held a 40-39 edge on the boards. Derek Anderson added 16 points and Damon Stoudamire 10 for the Blazers, who shot just 39 percent (33-of-85). Marbury picked up where he left off Tuesday in the opening quarter when he scored 13 points to help the Suns grab a 30-20 lead. While Marbury was enjoying another big game, it was a rough night for Blazers guard Scottie Pippen, who missed all seven of his shots and scored just one point. Wallace, who took just three shots in the first half, scored seven points in less than four minutes to start the third quarter, pulling the Blazers into a 53-53 tie. But the Suns answered with an 18-6 run, capped by a 3-pointer by Marbury to take their biggest lead at 71-59.
