Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Coming back from an ugly loss to one of the elite teams in the Western Conference, the Phoenix Suns were facing the right opponent. Shawn Marion scored 21 points to lead a balanced attack as the Suns pulled out a 101-95 victory over the hapless Washington Wizards. Phoenix recovered from Saturday's 105-76 loss in San Antonio, winning for the fourth time in seven games. Taking advantage of one of the worst teams in the weak Eastern Conference, the Suns took a 71-59 lead into the fourth quarter and a 91-81 cushion with just over 2 1/2 minutes remaining. Phoenix had trouble putting away the game, but Washington - the worst foul-shooting team in the East - was done in by its ineptitude at the line, making just 26-of-43 attempts. Both Marion and coach Mike D'Antoni admitted it was an ugly performance and were troubled at the team's inability to close out the game. The Suns led by as many as 15 points in the second half but let Washington within five in the fourth. "It was an ugly one," Marion said. "One of our biggest flaws as a team is we play down to our competition. We play well against the good teams and play bad against the bad teams." "It wasn't pretty. It was probably one of the least prettiest I have ever seen," D'Antoni said. "That is what happens when you come out with concentration and sink to the level out there. You just don't play the game that way." The Wizards were within 94-88 when Gilbert Arenas was fouled by Leandro Barbosa with 31 seconds to play while attempting a 3-pointer. But Arenas missed two of three from the line and the Suns sealed the win by making seven of their final eight foul shots. "I missed two key free throws at the end that could have changed the game," Arenas said. "If I hit them we wouldn't have had to go for the threes or we could have played straight defense and not have had to foul." Larry Hughes scored 32 points and Arenas added 30, but Washington still lost for the 12th time in 15 games. Joe Johnson added 18 points and Amare Stoudemire chipped in 15 for the Suns, who shot 49 percent (37-of-75). Both teams dressed only nine players. The Suns were without centers Jahidi White and Jake Voskhul and point guard Howard Eisley, all out with injuries. Washington was missing injured guards Steve Blake and Juan Dixon and swingman Jerry Stackhouse, who was in Atlanta tending to a personal matter.
