Captain Jack Leads Warriors Over Suns

By  | 

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Stephen Jackson had 30 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his first career triple-double, and the Golden State Warriors routed the Phoenix Suns 124-112 on Wednesday night.

Jamal Crawford scored 27 points, and Kelenna Azubuike had 19 of his 25 in the first quarter for the Warriors, who started the game on a 17-2 run and never let the Suns get close. Jackson, who clearly knew his stats in the final minutes, finished off his triple-double with an assist on Ronny Turiaf's open jumper with 3:47 to play.

Jason Richardson scored 24 points for Phoenix in the longtime
Warriors guard's second homecoming game in Oakland, but the Suns
played atrocious defense in their sixth loss in nine games, and
their fourth straight at Golden State.
