Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Clippers handed the Phoenix Suns their final loss of a difficult 2003-04 campaign. The Suns equaled their win total from last season by dominating the Clippers from start to finish. Joe Johnson scored 23 points and Shawn Marion added 22 as the Suns started fast and cruised to a 108-91 victory over the Clippers. With its fifth straight win, Phoenix (29-4) built upon the finest start in franchise history and recorded the ninth-best 33-game start in league history. The turnaround is largely due to point guard Steve Nash, who came over from Dallas as a free agent in the offseason. "I think it's a tribute to all of us," said Nash, who finished with 10 points and 10 assists. "I think I may be getting a little more credit then a I deserve. I know I'm a big part of this team, but I think we're all important parts to our success." The Suns are on pace to finish 72-10 and match the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for the NBA's best all-time record. "With the addition of Steve Nash and Quentin Richardson, that has made the team great," Johnson said. "We've grown in a year. "This is a championship caliber team. So long as we keep playing hard and staying focused, I think the sky is the limit for us." This one was never in doubt after a furious first half by the Suns. Marion scored 16 points and Johnson and Amare Stoudemire 14 apiece as Phoenix raced to a 69-46 halftime lead. "We just came out and took them out of the box early," Marion said. "We came in and handled our business. We knew they could show signs of life and we took it out of them." The Clippers never got closer than 13 points thereafter, falling for the sixth time in their last seven home games vs. the Suns. "That team is like the ocean," Los Angeles coach Mike Dunleavy said. "It's rolling in. It's going to go back, but it's coming. My point is this is a team that comes in waves at you. Their offense keeps coming at you and rolls you. They are the best shooting team in the league, you have to limit their runs." Quentin Richardson, who leads the Western Conference with 97 3-pointers, made his first less than two minutes in to give Phoenix the lead for good, 7-4. He provided three more from behind the arc in less than a minute in the second quarter for a commanding 45-22 lead. The Suns made 10-of-17 3-pointers in the first half and never trailed. Richardson scored 19 points, part of a 91-point effort by the Suns' starters. "I don't know whether our offense intimidates the other team or not but we have confidence in ourselves and each other," Richardson said. "Every game we feel like we can win. That's a tribute to our working hard and meshing very quickly as a team. We've got five guys out there who can score, as well as other guys on the bench." The first time the teams met this season, Phoenix scored 98 points over the last three quarters en route to a 122-111 win. This time, it had 95 in the first three before emptying the bench in the closing minutes. Bobby Simmons scored 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for Los Angeles, which was just 1-of-9 from 3-point range to have their three game winning streak halted. "I don't think we played particularly bad, we just didn't shoot the ball well and that hurt us," said Clippers leading scorer Corey Maggette, who finished with 15 points despite turning his ankle in the third quarter. "We need to find a way to make shots, especially when we play Phoenix." As poorly as the Clippers shot, Maggette still praised the Suns. "The Phoenix Suns are a very talented team," he said. "They have so many weapons on their team. Joe Johnson, Q. Richardson, Shawn and Amare. They have a lot a firepower. ... They know how to play."
