Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- With a devastating attack from the arc and inside the paint, the Phoenix Suns rolled into the record books. Quentin Richardson scored 26 points, including six 3-pointers, and Amare Stoudemire added 21 points as the Suns improved to a franchise-record 18-3 with a 121-100 blowout of the Orlando Magic. Taking advantage of a road-weary Orlando squad that played the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, Phoenix came out running and dominated the transition game, outscoring the Magic on the break, 28-15. "We wanted to keep the pace of the game up - we thought they would fall short at the end," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "We took advantage of the schedule. They came in on a back-to-back and we were waiting for them." Phoenix, which is averaging a league-best 110.9 points and 8.55 3-pointers, was 13-of-30 from the arc and outscored Orlando, 56-30, in the paint en route to surpassing the 1980-81 Suns for the best start in franchise history. "It's down to where we are not pretenders, we are contenders," Stoudemire said. "We run offensively and defensively. There are certain teams that are just good fast-break teams but don't get back on defense. We get back on Defense and we know we are going to have three or four runs a game." Shawn Marion collected 19 points, 10 rebounds and a career high-tying six blocks and Joe Johnson added 18 and seven assists for Phoenix, which had five players score in double figures. Filling in for starting guard Steve Nash, who ran into early foul trouble, Leandro Barbosa scored 10 of his season-high 19 points in the first half as the Suns jumped out to a 56-49 lead at the intermission. "I feel very comfortable right now," Barbosa said. "Even though we have Steve Nash, I have to be ready to go in and help the team." Nash still managed to dish out 10 assists despite playing just 27 minutes. Grant Hill, who scored 23 points, hit a jumper with just under four minutes left in the third quarter to reduce the Magic's deficit to 75-73, but Orlando could not keep up as Phoenix closed out the period with a 13-6 run. "They played well and have a lot of weapons," Hill said. "They play like they are the best team in the league. We wanted to run but we didn't do a good job of igniting our break, which is much to their credit." Barbosa scored five points and Richardson added a 3-pointer during the quarter-ending run. "They did their best job trying to stay up with us," Richardson said. "I don't think there is anybody in the league that can run with us and sustain it for 48 minutes. We are really happy about the start but we know it is a long season, not just 21 games, and we have a lot of work to do." Steve Francis added 18 points and rookie Dwight Howard grabbed 18 rebounds for the Magic, who did not have answer for the Suns' high-octane offense. "I thought we competed with them but they are a relentless team," Magic Coach Johnny Davis said. "We had a couple of things we had to compensate for like foul trouble, that kind of thing, but they kept coming at you and we couldn't sustain it for 48 minutes." The Suns improved to 9-1 against Eastern Conference teams and have scored at least 113 points in seven of the last eight games.
