20 3-pointers pushes Suns past the Nuggets
So in the beginning of this season, Shawn Marion was whining about not getting enough recognition on his team after Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire. Well here you go Shawn, good game.
Marion led the Suns to a 137-115 victory over the Nuggets last night. Marion had 27 points, 14 boards, 6 blocks and made 5 of the Suns 20 3-pointers. If a team makes 20 3-pointers in a game it’s damn near impossible to beat them.
Marcus Banks (pictured left) had 23 points in the game. His 7 threes accounted for 21 of those points. The Suns 20 3-pointers was a franchise record and one shy of the NBA record of 21 set by Toronto on March 13, 2005.
The Suns came out firing on all cylinders. The score after the first quarter was 46-34, and after the second was 78-59. They had 78 points in the first half?!?! Thats more than the Knicks score in a lot of games.
Warriors need OT to top the champs
The Warriors led the Spurs for most of the game. The Spurs showed us why they were champs making a great fourth quarter comeback which ended with Tony Parker hitting a 3 pointer with 6 seconds left to force overtime.
In overtime we forgot about the Spurs though. It was all about Stephen Jackson and the Warriors. Jackson scored 12 points in the overtime period to lead the Warriors past the champs at home in a 130-121 victory.
