Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- It's starting to look less likely that the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns will meet again in just over a week. Penny Hardaway recorded his first triple-double in over a year and Shawn Marion also had a big game as the Suns rolled to a 112-89 rout of the Mavericks. One night after agian being humbled by the Los Angeles Lakers, the Mavericks were overwhelmed by the Suns. The latest loss dropped the Mavs (57-21) - who had at least a share of the Midwest Division since opening night - one game behind the San Antonio Spurs. "I don't have a lot to say about the game, it wasn't much of a game," Mavs coach Don Nelson said. "We came out flat and we could just never get it together." The Mavs also are a game behind the Spurs for the top seed in the Western Conference and appear headed for a much tougher first-round matchup in the postseason if they fail to catch the NBA's hottest team. "We just need to be in the mind-set of playing good basketball going into the playoffs," Mavs guard Nick Van Exel said. "No matter who we play, it's going to be tough for us the way we're playing right now. We've just go to play better basketball as a team and hopefully the rest will take care of itself." Led by Hardaway, who collected 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, the Suns (42-36) moved 2 1/2 games ahead of Houston (40-39) for the conference's final playoff spot. It was the first triple-double for the oft-injured Hardaway since December 29, 2001 against Denver. "Triple-doubles are hard to come by," Hardaway said. "You don't see a lot of them and I'm proud no matter how I get it. I didn't know until about two minutes before I went out that I just needed a rebound. That's when I just started to focus on the rebound." Marion finished with 31 points and 15 rebounds as the Suns won for the fourth time in their last five games while beating the Mavs for the second time in three tries this season. The Suns' latest win over the Mavs was an impressive one as they never trailed and led by as many as 23 points. Point guard Stephon Marbury added 20 points and rookie Amare Stoudemire 17 for the Suns, who were efficient on both ends of the floor. They shot 51 percent (45-of-81) and held the high-scoring Mavs to 40 percent (32-of-80) while also forcing 19 turnovers that they turned into 26 points. "The first thing I havet to look at is that they shot only forty percent and that was huge for us," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "We followed our game plan to a tee, we had a few lapses but overall I was pleased with tonight's performance. "The best thing about this game is we moved the ball extremely well against the zone, not holding the ball and getting easy buckets. It was a fun game to watch and very entertaining." Marion started hot, scoring 11 points in the first quarter to help the Suns open a 36-25 advantage. A jumper by Van Exel, who scored 22 points, pulled the Mavs within 45-41 with 5:51 left in the first half. But the Suns reeled off the next seven points, capped by a layup from defensive-minded Bo Outlaw for a double-digit lead with 3:46 to play before intermission. Van Exel and Dirk Nowitzki, who scored 26 points, were the only players to reach double figures for Dallas, the NBA's highest-scoring team. Phoenix shot 53 percent (22-of-41) and held a 57-44 advantage at the break. The Suns continued to pour it on in the second half. A jumper by Hardaway off a pass from Marbury opened a 65-48 cushion. They led by double digits the entire quarter and held a 86-70 advantage entering the final period. "A win tonight is big, especially how we won," Marbury said. "I think we've been playing real good basketball. If we just continue to play with that same kind of effort, I think we can put ourselves in a nice position." Dallas never made a run in the fourth quarter and Marion's 3-pointer with 5:27 left gave Phoenix a 105-82 bulge.
