Jackson leads Warriors' roll past SunsPosted: Updated:
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 long-time 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.
