Houston Rockets rallied against the Suns but it wasn't enough. Phoenix Suns denied Rockets a win on Monday in Toyota Center in Houston despite Rockets dropping one of their best performances, shooting 54.4 percent from the field, 51.5 percent from deep in the 133-130 loss to the Suns. Rockets failed to improve their miserable season tally as well and are currently 13-37 in the season and lost their fifth back-to-back game.
Rockets rallied in the last quarter rather than folding their cards, to put an end to the losing streak but Suns were hard to beat in spite of having seven players in double-digit scores in the end, Kelly Olynyk on 21 points and Jae’Sean Tate complimented with 18 points and seven rebounds. Leading the charge from Suns was Kevin Porter Jr. with his first triple-double, with 20 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists, Devin Booker added 36 points and DeAndre Ayton had 27 points and 11 rebounds. Rockets would now take on Dallas next and attempt to end the losing streak.
