Suns extend Denver's desert misery with 100-94 winPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -- Hakim Warrick scored 21 points to lead a balanced attack, helping the Phoenix Suns overcome a 15-point, first-half deficit to beat the Denver Nuggets for the 12th consecutive time at home, 100-94 Monday night.
The Suns had a rough night from 3-point range, making just 4 of 20 after nearly breaking the NBA record with 22 in a win over the Lakers the day before. Phoenix also had a sloppy first half -- at both ends -- making up for it by putting six players in double figures.
Steve Nash had 15 points and seven assists, and Channing Frye chipped in 15 points.
Carmelo Anthony had 20 points and 22 rebounds for Denver, which hasn't won in the desert since April 7, 2004.
