Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns forgot about Anthony Carter until he made the shot that turned the San Antonio Spurs' shaky season opener into a success. Carter scored his first points of the fourth quarter on a layup with 25 seconds left as the defending champion Spurs rallied for an 83-82 victory over the Suns. Carter signed as a free agent with San Antonio in July and started in place of injured point guard Tony Parker, who is sidelined with a sprained left ankle. He made just four of his first 14 shots in his debut with the Spurs, prompting the Suns to leave him unguarded. Phoenix paid for the decision when Carter, who had been 0-for-3 in the period, followed in Bruce Bowen's miss to give San Antonio an 83-82 lead. "The guys kept telling me to keep shooting, even when my shot wasn't falling," Carter said. "There's nights when you can't make a basket, but you can always make a big play." "He deserves a lot of credit," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He never hung his head, played the entire game." The Suns missed three jumpers on their final possession and failed to avenge their first-round loss to the Spurs in the 2003 playoffs. All-Star guard Stephon Marbury, who hit a game-winning 3-pointer in Game One against San Antonio last season, missed two jumpers in the final nine seconds. "When Marbury got the ball with a few seconds to go, I thought 'Please don't let it go in,'" Spurs forward Malik Rose said. "The game played out well. It's the way we wanted to start the season." San Antonio's Tim Duncan had 24 points and 12 rebounds as the Spurs rallied from a 15-point deficit after raising their second NBA championship banner and received their rings prior to the game. The Spurs were rusty, shooting just 43 percent (31-of-73) from the field and committing 20 turnovers. But they scored 18 points off 18 turnovers by the Suns and held Phoenix to 36 percent (30-of-83). "It was a wonderful win for us," Popovich said. "(It) probably won't go down as one of the greatest played basketball games. We were discombobulated, but we hung tough for 48 minutes." "As the game wore on, we kind of learned a little bit what we needed to do," Duncan said. "I definitely think we stole one. We fought the whole way, and luckily it's a 48-minute game, not 46 or 42." Marbury finished with 24 points, seven rebounds and six assists and Shawn Marion scored 20 points for the Suns, who got just 10 points and seven rebounds from reigning Rookie of the Year Amare Stoudemire. "He's got to understand that now they are looking to go after him," Phoenix coach Frank Johnson said of Stoudemire. "He's young and those things are going to happen." Phoenix got off to a fast start, scoring 16 of the game's first 18 points, highlighted by nine from Marbury, who had 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting in the opening 12 minutes. The Suns had their biggest lead at 25-10 after a jumper by Penny Hardaway with 90 seconds left in the first quarter. Phoenix had a 28-19 lead after one period but managed only 14 points in the second quarter as San Antonio pulled within 42-38 at halftime. The Spurs ended the third quarter with eight consecutive points, led by a pair of baskets from Rose, to pull within 68-67 entering the final period. They missed their first six shot of the fourth quarter and trailed, 77-71, with 5:49 remaining. Duncan buried a jumper and Manu Ginobili made a pair of free throws before Hedo Turkoglu sank an 18-footer to give the Spurs their first lead at 77-76 with 3:53 to play. Phoenix struggled to get rebounds down the stretch as Stoudemire and center Jake Voskuhl each fouled out in the final 5 1/2 minutes.
