The Suns were coming off a draining victory in Minnesota, after which they flew to Houston and arrived in the wee hours of the morning. 'We weren't sharp. Maybe it was fatigue,' point guard Steve Nash said. 'But we were good enough. Amare Stoudemire finally cooled off after a torrid two-game stretch in which he scored a total of 84 points, finishing with just 19 on 5-of-15 shooting and nine rebounds. But his teammates picked up the slack and rolled to a relatively easy victory."
