Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns may have gotten off to a slow start in the first quarter, but the Utah Jazz couldn't contain the NBA's best transition game any longer than that. Joe Johnson sank 5-of-5 3-pointers and scored a season-high 30 points to lead the Suns to a 108-86 victory over the Utah Jazz. In the first quarter, the Jazz did not look like a team that had played at home a day earlier and traveled to Phoenix. Led by Matt Harpring's 10 points, Utah jumped out to a 26-19 lead before Phoenix's high-octane offense produced a season-high 41 points while shooting 69 percent (11-of-16) from the field in the second quarter. "We wore them down a bit," Suns Coach Mike D'Antoni said. "They played last night and we kept running them. We had spurts, from everybody." Starting with a dunk by Shawn Marion, Phoenix went on a 16-5 run over the first three-plus minutes of the second quarter to take a 35-31 lead. Leandro Barbosa, who scored 10 points, hit a 3-pointer to put the Suns ahead for good and Amare Stoudemire capped the spurt with a three-point play. Stoudemire scored 11 of his 19 points during the second quarter and Nash - who had 11 assists - added nine of his 13 over that stretch, including a baseline jumper with two-tenths of a second left to give the Suns a 60-49 lead at intermission. Johnson had two 3-pointers and scored 12 points in the third quarter as Phoenix extended its lead to 89-72 after 36 minutes. "We have a talented ballclub and I think the sky is the limit," Johnson said. "I think the first quarter, they came out with a lot of energy and that caught us off guard but like good teams, we found a will and a way to win." Marion produced his 16th double-double of the season, posting 16 points and 13 rebounds, including six and three in the second period. "In the second quarter, it just happened, we had everything going," Marion said. "We were stopping them and creating easy baskets for us. When we do that, we play our best." Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 11 rebounds and Mehmet Okur added 11 and 11 for Utah, which surrendered a season-worst 60 points in the first half. "We did some good things in the first quarter, then we stopped doing what we were doing," said Harpring, who scored all of his 15 points in the first half. "We weren't executing, we were doing more 1-on-1 stuff. When we got bad shots, they got rebounds and then they're off to the races." The Suns outscored the Jazz, 14-10, on the fast break and entered Wednesday's game leading the league with 19.4 fast-break points per game. Utah point guard Carlos Arroyo was benched in the first half following a vocal argument with coach Jerry Sloan in the third quarter of Tuesday's win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Raul Lopez started in place of Arroyo and dished out eight assists. He was held to just two points before leaving with a strained right abductor. The Suns have won six straight games, averaging 116 points during that span with an average margin of victory of 15.5 points. Their 19-3 record is the best start to a season since current Suns point guard Steve Nash led the 2002-03 Dallas Mavericks to a 21-3 beginning. "This team destroys you and destroys your will to win," Sloan said. "They play as efficient as any team I've seen in a long time. They do everything you want a team to do, and they seem to like each other."
