PHOENIX (TICKER) —The Phoenix Suns try to extend their home winning streak over the Chicago Bulls to five games on Monday when they continue a season-high six-game homestand at America West Arena.

The Suns have won the last four home meetings against the Bulls and six of the last eight. Chicago has not won at America West Arena since November 20, 1996.

The Bulls snapped a five-game losing streak against the Suns with a victory in the last meeting between the teams on February 22, 2002.

Phoenix has bounced back from a three-game slide with consecutive victories and opened its longest homestand of the season with a 116-107 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

Stephon Marbury scored eight of his 32 points in the fourth quarter and Shawn Marion had 10 of his 29 in the final period as the Suns won for the 12th time in their last 13 home games.

Amare Stoudemire added 15 points and fellow rookie Casey Jacobsen had 12 for Phoenix, which is 19-4 at American West Arena for the third-best home record in the league.

Chicago fell to 0-3 on a five-game road trip with a 90-77 loss to the Seattle SuperSonics on Saturday.

Jalen Rose scored 23 points and Donyell Marshall added 14 as the Bulls fell to a league-worst 2-23 on the road.
