Despite a career-high 24 points scored by Israeli rookie Omri Casspi, Sacramento Kings lost to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night. Steve Nash had 30 points and 12 assists, Amare Stoudemire scored 24 and the Suns snapped a seven-game road losing streak with a 113-109 victory over the Kings. It was Casspi's 4th straight game in which he scored at least 20 points. He shot 10 of 19 from the field, including 3 of 6 from beyond the arc and grabbed seven rebounds. The Kings erased an entire 20-point first half deficit but could never take the lead against the Suns, falling for the 14th time in the last 16 meetings between the teams. Tyreke Evans led the Kings with 27 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists.
