Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Howard Eisley was the unexpected answer for the Phoenix Suns down the stretch. Eisley scored 16 points and made a pair of key baskets in the final 2 1/2 minutes to help the Suns hold off the struggling Seattle SuperSonics, 104-99. Amare Stoudemire added 24 points and Shawn Marion chipped in 18 and 13 rebounds for the Suns, who have won back-to-back contests for the first time since a four-game winning streak January 15-19. "We are playing strong right now," Stoudemire said. "The last few games we have come out in the first quarter and played strong throughout the fourth. Tonight we struggled just a little bit in the fourth but we maintained and we got back in rhythm." Phoenix led by as many as 17 points in the second half and held a 94-81 lead after a jumper by Marion with 5:54 remaining. But Seattle stormed back, scoring nine straight points to pull within 94-90 on a 3-pointer by Ray Allen with 3:44 left. But Eisley stopped the run with a jumper with 2:27 remaining, then made it 98-90 on with a layup with 56 seconds to play. "I just wanted to make sure we got a good shot off, not necessarily me shooting the ball," Eisley said. "It happened to be me with the ball, and fortunately for our team, I made them." Seattle got within 102-99 on a 3-pointer by Ronald Murray with nine seconds left, but Phoenix's Joe Johnson sank a pair of free throws two seconds later. "These guys are not gonna go away," Suns caoch Mike D'Antoni said of the SuperSonics. "It's always gonna come down to a rush finale - that's just the way the NBA is. Ray Allen and Murray and those guys will hit some shots at the end. We weren't smooth towards the end but it was a good effort and a big win for us." Allen scored 23 points but made only 6-of-22 shots for Seattle, which has lost five of its last six games and 12 of 16. "What I have to do is watch film. I have to watch film of myself and not necessarily this game," Allen said. "We got to watch other teams that are good and see the things that make them good. That's the toughest thing about this game - we could put together runs, we could get stops, but it's the small things we don't do. We just seem disjointed." "It's just one of those nights where he wasn't 100 percent on his game and he still got 25," D'Antoni said. "He's an All-Star and it was just one of those nights that he was a normal, good NBA player and he didn't have his Superman costume on tonight." Phoenix took the lead for good on a layup by rookie Leandro Barbosa 2:40 into the contest and held a 29-20 advantage after one quarter. The Suns extended their cushion by a point in the second period and took a 81-71 edge into the final 12 minutes. "With the month that we've had and the losses we've had, we just need to come out and compete," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "You've got to play hard and you've got to know that you can't come out and flip the switch on and expect to beat anyone." "Whoever comes in here, whenever they want to score, they do," Seattle guard Antonio Daniels said. "If we continue to play like that, we'll continue to lose. Until we get some heart, and become hard-nosed aobut ourselves, then things will begin to turn around."
