Spurs' title defense over after Suns' victory

AP Sports Writer
PHOENIX, May 3, 2000 - In a game the San Antonio Spurs had to win, the Phoenix Suns beat them with a blond bombshell.

Jason Kidd, newly blond and just as energetic as ever, was back on the court six weeks after breaking his left ankle, helping the Suns beat the Spurs 89-78 Tuesday night, eliminating the defending NBA champions from the playoffs.

"The guy's an amazing player," Phoenix coach Scott Skiles said. "He's a gifted individual, there's no doubt about it. I was a little leery, I have to be honest, about him playing at all, even though the doctor said he was 100 percent. You worry about the worst, but clearly he looked really good.'

Penny Hardaway and the NBA's Sixth Man Award winner, Rodney Rogers, scored 23 points apiece as the Suns won the best-of-five series 3-1.

"Jason was a big difference," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said, "a huge difference. Big doesn't do him justice, and not just his emotion. He played his fanny off."

The Spurs, who played the entire series without Tim Duncan, became the first defending champion knocked out of the opening round since Philadelphia lost to New Jersey 3-2 in 1984. Chicago did not make the playoffs last year after winning in 1998.

With Duncan and Jerome Kersey injured, the Spurs were down to one power forward after Malik Rose left with a torn ligament in his right knee with 4:07 left in the first half.
