Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Jason Kidd fell one rebound shy of his sixth triple-double of the season and committed just one turnover as the Phoenix Suns used a big third-quarter run to rally past the lifeless Golden State Warriors, 99-82.

Kidd was only 4-of-11 from the field for 15 points, but handed out 14 assists and grabbed nine boards while playing the point to perfection as the Suns closed the third period with a 20-8 burst to overtake the Warriors.

"The biggest thing is not going for a triple-double," Kidd said. "And tonight, if I was going for it, I would have stayed in the game. It doesn't matter. If I get enough rest, that makes us stronger for tomorrow. The win was important.

"I've got a lot of guys who can score. My job is to get people involved and get guys the ball. I don't have to shoot 20 times or make 10 shots for us to win. If I can get the guys the ball at the right time and place, that's what it's all about and I enjoy doing that."

Cliff Robinson scored 25 points and Rodney Rogers continued to strengthen his case for the NBA's Sixth Man Award by getting 11 of his 21 during a fourth-quarter run that turned the game into a blowout.

"Rodney's probably the leading candidate for the sixth man of the year," Robinson said. "He's been so consistent, doing what he's been doing off the bench this year. He's been able to drive on guys and at the same time, knock down open shots. He gives us a good boost off the bench."

Penny Hardaway had 16 points and eight assists for Phoenix, which has won three in a row and 15 of its last 19 games. The Suns moved one game ahead of idle San Antonio for fourth place in the Western Conference.

"If we can continue doing the things we've been doing, I don't see why we couldn't play with (the Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers)," Robinson said. "It's going to be tough without Tom Gugliotta, but we have some guys who are capable of stepping in and making some things happen."

Larry Hughes had 25 points and nine rebounds and Jason Caffey scored 20 points off the bench for the Warriors, who have lost nine of 10.

"We made a run in the third quarter, but then they made a run and got up too many points for us to come back," Hughes said. "There's nothing special we're trying to do, except to get a win."

The Suns have won 12 of the last 13 meetings with Golden State, with the only loss coming here last season.

"Phoenix is a playoff team that's working their tails off," Golden State coach Garry St. Jean said. "They came in here with a purpose. We made a couple of runs at them, but they knew what they had to get done."

Trailing 54-47 at the half, the Warriors staged a valiant third-quarter comeback.

Hughes capped an 11-2 burst with a 26-footer, putting Golden State in front, 58-56, with 7:55 remaining in the period. But Kidd hit two free throws to forge a tie and Robinson followed with a 3-pointer as the Suns pulled ahead to stay.

Golden State's Donyell Marshall responded with a 23-footer before Hardaway framed Kidd's 25-footer with a jumper and driving layup, opening a 68-60 cushion.

Caffey's layup got Golden State back within four points, but the Suns' lethal backcourt duo struck again as Kidd nailed another 3-pointer after Hardaway's 15-footer to make 73-64 with 90 seconds left in the third quarter.

Rogers' 25-footer gave Phoenix a 76-66 lead entering the final 12 minutes.

After Caffey dunked to shave the deficit to 76-68 with 11:33 to play, Rogers made sure the Warriors would not make another serious run at the lead. He hit back-to-back 3-pointers and added a layup and a dunk as the Suns stretched the margin to 87-68 with 8:46 left.

"Guys, teammates found me and I hit the open shots," Rogers said. "It's fine with me, I guess they don't pay attention to the scouting reports. You've got guys like Jason Kidd and Penny Hardaway coming off picks and you don't want to get them going, so guys have to help, kick it out to me and Cliff, guys that can shoot the outside shot."
