Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns played like a team looking to make the playoffs. The Washington Wizards did not. With both squads vying for the final postseason berth in their respective conferences, the Suns routed the Wizards, 109-83, as Stephon Marbury scored 23 points and reserve Joe Johnson added 19. "We played hard all the way through," Marbury said. "We really wanted this game tonight. We came out and played with a sense of urgency from the beginning to the end. Probably our first game we've done that." Marbury had nine points in a 17-0 run that broke open the game in the first quarter. Michael Jordan put Washington ahead, 15-9, with a fadeaway jumper with 5:14 left, but the Wizards did not score again in the period. "From that point on, we didn't even compete," Jordan said. "They made a push at us and we just wilted. From that point on, it wasn't a game. It was like we were in uniform and they were doing anything they wanted against us. It was very, very embarrassing and I can't believe we got paid for tonight. "It is just not fun being part of a game like this with no emotion or energy, no dignity at all." Shawn Marion, who chipped in 18 points, capped the Suns' outburst with a dunk for a 26-15 lead. "We were stopping them on the defensive end, creating easy baskets for us and pushing the game like that," Marion said. "We pushed the tempo of the ball and started running and finally started playing like we're supposed to be playing." Rookie Amare Stoudemire contributed 16 points and eight rebounds for Phoenix, which remained tied with Houston for the eighth spot in the West - 3 1/2 games ahead of Golden State. The Suns, who recorded their most lopsided victory of the season, matched last season's win total with their 36th. They snapped a three-game losing streak against Washington and earned a split of the season series. "Best game from start to finish all year," Phoenix coach Frank Johnson said. "Defensively, we were really good, we got after it and did what we had to do to speed up the game. We had to play this type of game in order to win. When we played them in Washington, (Jerry) Stackhouse and Jordan were just too good in that situation." Jordan scored 14 points, Larry Hughes had 13 and Christian Laettner 12 for the Wizards, who stayed one-half game behind Milwaukee for the final berth in the East. "We don't have a lot of firepower, so when teams get after us it is not like we score easily. And we could never come close to stopping them," Washington coach Doug Collins said. "That was bad. Other then the first six or seven minutes, we were never in the game. I still don't know this team and we played our 68th game." Washington opened its six-game western road trip with its fourth consecutive loss away from home. The Wizards have dropped 11 of their last 13 road games. Marion nailed a 3-pointer from the corner with 1:36 remaining in the second quarter to push the Suns' advantage to 49-27. Phoenix's bulge grew to 90-60 on two free throws by Marbury with 9:10 left in the fourth. "I thought we came out and we got off to kind of a good start, and then I think it was the first time we came out aggressively and finished the game aggressively," Johnson said. "It was a great game for us, a big confidence boost, and we just need to carry it on to Dallas tomorrow." After starting 1-of-6 from the field, the Suns shot 66 percent (21-of-32) the rest of the half, building a 51-34 lead, and finished 46-of-84 (55 percent). Phoenix outrebounded the Wizards, 46-32, and outscored them in the paint, 60-16. "Sixty points in the paint and it wasn't like they were post-ups," Collins said. "They beat us in every way." Stackhouse, Washington's leading scorer at 22.4 points per game, managed just seven along with nine assists. Bobby Simmons contributed 10 points as the Wizards shot 40.5 percent (32-of-79), including 3-of-13 from 3-point range.
