Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) - It was more highs for Amare Stoudemire, Quentin Richardson and the Phoenix Suns and more lows for the New York Knicks. Stoudemire scored 29 points and Richardson added 25 on seven 3-pointers as the Suns rolled to a 133-118 victory over the floundering Knicks, who have lost a season-high seven in a row. The Suns fell four points short of the NBA season high as they shot 54 percent (46-of-85) from the field and had five players with at least 17 points, including recent arrival Jim Jackson. It was their most points since finishing with 134 against the Los Angeles Clippers on January 14, 1995. "We had wide-open shots because guys have confidence in each other," Jackson said. "We believe in the system. The philosophy is that we can make more jump shots than you can. That is what they told me when I walked in the door. Now I believe it." Stoudemire overpowered the Knicks inside as he made 15-of-23 free throws, the most attempts by a visitor in Madison Square Garden history. He broke by one a record shared by five players, including Michael Jordan, Moses Malone and Dominique Wilkins. Stoudemire also made 7-of-13 shots, including a few mid-range jumpers. He just missed finishing with 30 points for the third straight game and 16th time overall. Richardson was 7-of-14 from the arc, leading an outside attack that saw the Suns drain 16-of-32 3-pointers, the most ever made against the Knicks. Jackson sank five shots from the arc and Joe Johnson three as Phoenix matched its team record for 3-pointers in a game for the second time this season. "We were feeling it," Richardson said. "It was a lot of fun. Every time you turned around it felt like we were knocking them down. This is the most fun I am having since my AAU and high school days." Johnson scored 24 points, Shawn Marion added 20 and 11 rebounds and Jackson scored 17 for the Suns, who won easily despite an ordinary game from Steve Nash. The floor leader had nine points and seven assists. Phoenix took the lead for good in the second quarter and never slowed down. It had 65 points at halftime and 100 after three quarters before fighting off a half-hearted surge by New York in the final period. "We put up a lot of points tonight," said Phoenix coach Mike D'Antoni, whose team topped 120 for the ninth time this season. "We shot the ball extremely well. We don't shoot the ball that well every night." "They don't play like most teams," Knicks coach Herb Williams said. "They play at the 3-point line. They were launching 3-pointers and tonight they got hot." Jamal Crawford scored 40 points for the Knicks, who had a handful of showy numbers but lost for the 11th time in 12 games. They fell to 0-2 under interim coach Herb Williams, who replaced Lenny Wilkens over the weekend. "They play totally different basketball," said Knicks guard Stephon Marbury, who had 11 points and nine assists. "They were making threes well beyond the 3-point line. They weren't shooting threes uncontested. Guys were pretty much in their face and they were still making threes." The Knicks have dropped seven in a row for the first time since an eight-game skid January 5-21, 2002. They also allowed their highest total since giving up 141 at Portland on November 15, 1990. Johnson had two 3-pointers and Jackson and Richardson each sank one in a 15-6 surge that opened the second quarter and gave the Suns a 43-39 lead. Two 3-pointers by Jackson and one by Richardson helped Phoenix push the advantage to 65-55 at halftime. Another 3-pointer by Richardson made it 78-63 with 9:03 left in the third quarter before the Knicks scored 10 straight points. But Steven Hunter had a block anf fast-break to rebuild the lead to 86-75 with 5:01 to go. Richardson scored 10 points in the fourth quarter, including a dagger 3-pointer that made it 125-114 with 1:43 to play. Kurt Thomas had 24 points and 14 rebounds and rookie Trevor Ariza added season highs of 21 and 11 for the Knicks, who lost for the 11th time in 12 games. "Going against a team like this, we definitely wanted to keep them under 100," Thomas said. "The way they shot the ball we just had to play up and down with them." Phoenix opened a season-high six-game road trip with its second straight win following a season-high six-game slide. In three games since Nash has returned, the Suns have averaged 123 points.
