Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns left Scott Skiles yearning for the good old days. Shawn Marion scored 21 points and grabbed a season-high 16 rebounds as the Phoenix Suns continued one of the best starts in team history by victimizing the woeful Chicago Bulls, 100-82. Skiles guided the Suns to a 116-79 mark and two playoff appearances from 1999-2002 but now is at the helm of one of the worst Bulls' teams in almost 40 years. Chicago has dropped all nine of its games this season - the worst start by a Bulls' squad since the 1967-68 team also opened 0-9 en route to a 29-53 mark. "We just keep looking on the bright side that we are making improvements out there, but it doesn't take away from the fact that we can't get a game right now," Bulls center Eddy Curry said. "It is mentally and physically draining on everybody on this team. I think we are doing a good job of sticking together and trying to play through this thing no matter what." Phoenix led 53-48 with 3:28 remaining in the first half when they closed the quarter on a 12-2 run and Chicago never recovered. "We were playing tough as has been the case," Skiles said. "We had several minutes where instead of not playing as well as we could have we fall off the cliff and get unhinged. They went up by 15 and we had to play catch up." While the Bulls fell to 0-5 on its seven-game road trip, the Suns improved to 9-2 and matched Seattle for the best record in the league. The start is the second-best in club history, trailing only the 1980-81 squad, which opened 14-2. "We're pretty happy where we are right now and how we have come together," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "It feels good and the guys have a real good chemistry right now. There will be some tough times ahead, but so far so good." Amare Stoudemire had 21 points and Steve Nash added 15 for the Suns, who have won seven straight at home against the Bulls. Stoudemire who was named Western Conference Player of the Week earlier in the day, had his string of 30-point games snapped at four. His run of 15 consecutive 20-point contests dating to last season is the longest current run in the league. "We knew this was a team we should get a win against," Stoudemire said. "We weren't playing that good and weren't scoring that good early but we fought through it. We are a good ballclub and down the stretch we have a tendency to show it. Once we got going it was a rout from there." Rookie Ben Gordon scored a season-high 20 points and Curry added 17 for Chicago, which is the only winless team in the league. Marion has at least 12 rebounds in seven of his last eight games. "We have so many weapons on the floor nobody can match up with us," Marion said. "We slowed down in the third but it was just a matter of time before we got running again." The teams combined to miss 36 of 48 3-pointers, with Phoenix going 7-of-30 from the arc. The Bulls also missed 10 of 23 free throws.
