Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Amare Stoudemire tought Tyson Chandler and Eddy Curry a lesson. Stoudemire collected 26 points and 15 rebounds as the unbeaten Phoenix Suns cruised to a 94-74 victory over the winless Chicago Bulls. A 2002 first-round pick directly out of high school, Stoudemire has needed virtually no adjustment period to the NBA. His power game has seen him win 2003 Rookie of the Year honors and the MVP of the 2004 Rookie Challenge at All-Star Weekend. This game was no different as Stoudemire simply overwhelmed Chandler and Curry, who also entered the NBA directly out of high school and still are feeling their way. They offered hardly any resistance to Stoudemire. Stoudemire made 8-of-15 shots, including a couple of mid-range jumpers, and 10-of-11 free throws. He nearly had a double-double in the first half, when the Suns settled matters, then scored 12 points in the third period. "I just came out with a lot of energy and intensity," Stoudemire said. "I tried to warm up good in the warmups and my game was just on." "You can write down 25 points for him almost every night," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "He is playing with a lot of confidence right now and he is knocking down his outside shots." A pair of 7-footers, Chandler and Curry did not know how to handle the double-teaming defense of the Suns. They each took only one shot in the first half, combining for just five rebounds as Chicago dug itself a 49-34 hole. "I thought we double-teamed pretty well and hit (Curry) hard," D'Antoni said. "We are pretty athletic and we caused him some problems. Our guys covered him pretty well." Joe Johnson scored 20 points and Chicago native Quentin Richardson added 16 points for the Suns (4-0), who have won their games by an average of 23 points. "I knew in training camp we were going to open some eyes," Stoudemire said. "We just kept getting better every day. The sky is the limit for us." Phoenix failed to score 100 points for the first time this season, but it may have been dragged down by the poor play of Chicago (0-3). In the first quarter, the Bulls had more turnovers (5) than baskets (4), shot 0-of-8 from 3-point range and scored just nine points. "Our goal is 100 points, but there will be nights like this," D'Antoni said. "To play like this defensively and get a 20-point win on the road is important. It's also important to play defense and not just play good offensively all the time. It was a little ugly tonight but a good step for us." Rookie Luol Deng scored 18 points for the Bulls, who shot 33 percent (31-of-94) and were booed throughout. Richardson scored 12 points and Johnson 11 in the first half, while the Bulls were shooting 31 percent (14-of-45), including 0-of-13 from the arc. Curry, returning from a two-game suspension, got a quick hook from coach Scott Skiles. "I was nervous my first game back," said Curry, who scored three points on 1-of-5 shooting. "There was a lot of expectations. I just couldn't get it going." "If they get double-teamed, they have to pass the ball out and make the proper play," Skiles said. "When they get the ball inside, they have to make an NBA move." Shawn Marion had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Steve Nash handed out 12 assists for the Suns, who shot just 40 percent (32-of-80).
