PHOENIX (AP) -- Steve Nash scored 26 points and had 12 assists, Amare Stoudemire added 25 points and 11 rebounds, and the Phoenix Suns squandered a 16-point lead before rallying from a 16-point deficit to beat the Houston Rockets 118-110 on Wednesday night.

It was a furious game marked by a series of remarkable runs. It was the second time this season the Suns had rallied from a 16-point deficit in back-to-back games.

Channing Frye scored 22 points, hitting six 3-pointers and scored 22 points for Phoenix and Jason Richardson added 20.

Aaron Brooks topped Houston with a career-high 34 points, and reserve Carl Landry also had a career-high 31 points and nine rebounds. Trevor Ariza scored 15 and Luis Scola had 11.
