Houston Rockets vs. Phoenix Suns: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Houston
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Phoenix Suns beat the Houston Rockets at their own game, outscoring them 119-112.

It wasn't pretty for the Rockets, who committed 16 turnovers and shot under 47 percent from the field.

The worst part of their performance, though, was their consistent inability to defend either Luis Scola or Goran Dragic, who combined for 47 points.

Scola ended the night with 26 points and 15 rebounds, and Dragic accounted for 21 points and 14 assists. The Rockets' atrocious defense made the Suns look like the greatest offensive team in NBA history, and we all know that's not the case.

Every Suns starter was in double digits, including Wesley Johnson, who had 12 points and seven rebounds. Yep, it was that kind of game for the Rockets.

With playoff seeding on the line, James Harden couldn't get it done, scoring just 16 points on an abysmal 27.8 percent shooting.

Let's hope the Rockets can put this one behind them as they head to L.A. to face the Lakers on Wednesday night in a matchup that has some serious playoff implications.
