The Rockets hoped to keep their winning record going as they faced the Suns in Phoenix Tuesday night, but they fall back to .500 with the 113-110 loss.

Kyle Lowry couldn’t be stopped as he scored 32 points for the Rockets. The Rockets shot 46 percent from the field and made eight of 19 shot from beyond the three-point line. Rookie forward Patrick Patterson came off the bench to score 18 points, while Kevin Martin put up 17 points and Chase Budinger had 13.

Offesively, the Rockets were rolling. But for the second time in two nights, both teams scored more than a 100 points. The Rockets defense could not slow the scoring rampage by the Suns, who shot 54 percent and from the field and from behind the arc. Both forward Hakim Warrick and guard Vince Carter posted 32 points a piece for the Suns, while forward Grant Hill added another 19 and Marcin Gortat came off the bench to score 13 points.

Former Rockets point guard Aaron Brooks came off the Suns bench to play for more than 12 minutes, but he did not score, turned the ball over twice and had four fouls.

Goran Dragic, who has proved to be an outstanding addition to the Rockets since the trade deadline, played less than 12 minutes against his former team. He finished the game with six points and three assists.

Luis Scola sat out for the first time during his NBA career because of a sore left knee.

The Rockets will look to get back above the .500 mark when they play the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday at Toyota Center.
