Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Stephon Marbury single-handedly salvaged the final game of the Phoenix Suns' road trip. Marbury scored 35 of his 41 points in the second half and was dominant down the stretch as the Suns snapped a four-game slide with a 118-112 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Phoenix had lost six of its previous seven games - including five by three points or less - to fall into a tie for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. But the Suns avoided a winless four-game trip as Marbury made 14-of-21 shots, including 5-of-6 3-pointers. "Steph wouldn't allow us to lose," Phoenix coach Frank Johnson said. "He was pretty much all over the place. There was a stretch in which we were stagnant and he brought us back. He knows where to look for his offense." "Tonight I felt that the only way we were going to win was if we played hard defense and we attacked them," Marbury said. Marbury spearheaded a superb offensive effort by Phoenix, which shot 53 percent (45-of-85) from the floor and made 12-of-18 3-pointers. Joe Johnson scored 20 points, Shawn Marion added 17 and rookie Amare Stoudemire 12 and 14 rebounds as the Suns won for just the third time in their last 13 road games. Phoenix led by as many as 11 in the fourth quarter, but Milwaukee went on a 16-4 run to take a 96-95 lead with 6:16 left on a 3-pointer by Tim Thomas, who scored nine of his 15 points in the final period. Marbury buried a 3-pointer 19 seconds later and, after the Bucks scored four straight points, answered with a long jumper to give Phoenix the lead for good at 101-100. He followed with a layup at the 4:10 mark for a 103-100 edge. "Marbury is tough. When he makes threes, I don't know how you cover him," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. You can run out and try to double him and give someone else a three. When Stephon gets control of the game like that it's hard to stop him." "He torched us," Bucks guard Michael Redd said. "I don't know what else to say about it. We could have done a much better job on him defensively, but he was also hitting tough shots." Dan Langhi scored six of his eight points in the final four minutes and Marbury had a layup and four free throws in the last 93 seconds as the Suns extended their winning streak over the Bucks to seven games. Gary Payton scored 26 points and Sam Cassell had 24, seven rebounds and seven assists as the Bucks lost for the sixth time in seven games. "We need to figure this thing out and put some wins together," Redd said. "We have some big games coming up against the teams from the East and it's time for us to put it together." Milwaukee is just 1-2 with Payton in the lineup, losing both games at the Bradley Center. Toni Kukoc scored 23 points and fellow reserve Desmond Mason added 15 as the Bucks got 43 points from their bench. Marion scored eight points in the first quarter as Phoenix jumped out to a 26-18 lead. The Suns buried four 3-pointers in the opening 12 minutes and held the Bucks to 8-of-24 shooting. Phoenix led by as many as 11 in the second quarter and had a 57-51 halftime advantage. Marbury scored 18 points in the third and made consecutive 3-pointers to give the Suns their largest lead at 78-65 with 4:59 remaining.
