Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Amare Stoudemire kept the Phoenix Suns rolling on the road. Stoudemire scored 40 points as the Suns posted their NBA-best 27th road win of the season in a 105-94 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. Playing the second contest of a five-game road trip, the Suns won their eighth straight away game and matched a team record for road wins in a season. "We need to keep winning," Stoudemire said. "We have seven more road games. We have to close it out and try to get home-court advantage. That's our focus right now." Stoudemire, who posted his fifth 40-point game of the season, was the main reason, sparking a decisive fourth-quarter run. With the game tied, 88-88, with 6:02 to play, he scored five points in an 11-2 burst that gave the Suns a 99-90 edge with 1:35 remaining. "I came out and my offense was on and my free throws were on," Stoudemire said. "I was in attack mode. I wanted to carry my team and that's what I did." "He's an All-Star," Atlanta coach Mike Woodson said of Stoudemire. "He's a young, big-time talent. He's hard to defend one-on-one and he beats double-teams, too. I don't know how to stop him." In addition to being unable to stop Stoudemire, the Hawks also were not able to stop themselves from giving the ball away. Atlanta committed four crucial turnovers in the game's final six minutes, which led to seven Phoenix points. Atlanta had 18 turnovers overall to just eight for Phoenix. "You have to execute when you're playing a team like (Phoenix) and you have a close game," said Atlanta guard Tony Delk, who finished with 13 points off the bench. "When you're in a position to win, you definitely have to give yourself opportunities and you have to get shots every time down. We didn't always get shots and had too many turnovers." Shawn Marion collected 21 points and 11 rebounds and Steve Nash added 13 and 11 assists for Phoenix (50-16), which became the ninth team to win 50 games after losing 50 the season before. "That's what happens when you have talent already, and they get better, and then you add talent to it," Phoenix coach Mike D'Antoni said. "The front office did a great job of assembling a group of athletic players. (We) added Steve Nash and Quentin Richardson to a talented group." With the victory, the Suns took a half-game lead over idle San Antonio for the best record in the Western Conference. "I think we're playing as good as anybody and we can play with anybody," D'Antoni said. "On any given night, we should be able to take anyone." While Phoenix continues to thrive, Atlanta resumed its losing ways at home. The Hawks are a league-worst 8-25 at Philips Arena and have dropped seven straight here. Once again it was a late stumble down the stretch that cost Atlanta the game. For the third time in as many games at home, the Hawks managed to take a brief second-half lead before collapsing late. "I definitely think we can (overcome) it," rookie swingman Josh Childress said. "It's just a matter of us figuring out how to prevent (the late run). If we don't turn the ball over that much, we'd have the lead at the end. It's those kind of things that lead to losses." Al Harrington scored 16 points and rookie Josh Smith had 14 for Atlanta, which has the worst record in the NBA at 11-56.
