Suns 101, Raptors 100
PHOENIX (AP) – Amare Stoudemire followed one of the worst games of his career with his best game of the season, scoring 30 points to lead Phoenix to a 101-100 victory over Toronto on Sunday night, the Suns’ 11th straight win over the Raptors.
The Suns improved to an NBA-best 9-2, winning their 13th in a row at home.
They are the only team in the league to score at least 100 points in every game this season and they have scored at least 100 in 30 straight home games. They also are 18-3 at home since Alvin Gentry became coach.
Steve Nash had 23 points and nine assists, and Channing Frye added 20, hitting six 3-pointers. Chris Bosh led the Raptors with 25 points and 10 rebounds. Hedo Turkoglu scored 20 points, and Andrea Bargnani had 17.
Mavericks 95, Pistons 90
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) – Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points, and rookie Rodrique Beaubois added 14 points on 6-for-6 shooting for Dallas.
Drew Gooden had 11 points and 11 rebounds, and Shawn Marion also had 11 points, and Jason Kidd added 10 points and seven assists.
Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 28 points, and Will Bynum had 27, including 17 in the fourth quarter. Ben Gordon, though, went 1 for 16 and missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it with 2 seconds left.
Clippers 101, Thunder 93
