The Phoenix Suns' scored a 119-112 surprise victory over James Harden and the Houston Rockets, who are now a full game behind Golden State for the sixth seed in the West after Golden State knocked off the San Antonio Spurs.
The Rockets will close the season out Wednesday night (April 17) against the L.A. Lakers, in a game which will decide the seeding for the Rockets and the playoff fate of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Phoenix won their 25th game of the 2012-13 season and are hoping that the L.A. Lakers do miss out on the playoffs, as the Lakers' lottery pick would then go to Phoenix. Suns fans have little else to watch the standings for, after seeing their two-time MVP matriculate to the team they'd desperately like to see lose now.
