SUNS 113, ROCKETS 110: At Phoenix, Hakim Warrick scored a career-high 32 points starting in place of injured Channing Frye and the Suns added to their recent mastery of Houston. Vince Carter scored 15 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter, including two of his five 3-pointers, in the Suns' seventh consecutive victory over Houston. Kevin Lowry scored 32 points for the Rockets, who had won seven of eight overall and seven of eight road games entering the contest. The Suns, back after going 4-2 on their longest road trip of the season, never led by more than six in the game and trailed by 11. A rare free throw miss by Steve Nash gave the Rockets a chance to tie it at the finish, but Brad Miller's 3-point try under pressure was far off the mark at the buzzer.
