Lakers booed at home in 101-91 loss to Rockets

AARON Brooks scored a career-high 33 points as the Houston Rockets beat Los Angeles 101-91 last night, sending the the NBA champion Lakers to a second consecutive loss.

LA was coming off a 105-79 drubbing at Denver two nights earlier only to have another team they vanquished in last season's title run show them up at home, where they got booed.

David Andersen added a career-high 19 for the Rockets, who lost 103-102 at home in overtime in the teams' first meeting earlier this month.

Suns 101, Raptors 100

At Phoenix, Amare Stoudemire followed one of the worst games of his career with his best game of the season, scoring 30 points to lead the Suns over Toronto.

It was the Suns' 11th straight win over the Raptors, and their 13th in a row at home.

They are the only team in the league to score at least 100 points in every game this season and they have scored at least 100 in 30 straight home games.

Steve Nash had 23 points and nine assists, and Channing Frye added 20, hitting six 3-pointers. Chris Bosh led the Raptors with 25 points and 10 rebounds. Hedo Turkoglu scored 20 points, and Andrea Bargnani had 17.

Mavericks 95, Pistons 90

At Auburn Hills, Michigan, Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points and Rodrique Beaubois added 14 points on 6-for-6 shooting to help the Dallas Mavericks beat Detroit.

Drew Gooden had 11 points and 11 rebounds, and Shawn Marion also had 11 points, while Jason Kidd added 10 points and seven assists for the Mavericks.

Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 28 points, and Will Bynum had 27, including 17 in the fourth quarter. Ben Gordon, though, went 1 for 16 and missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it with 2 seconds left.

Clippers 101, Thunder 93

At Oklahoma City, Baron Davis scored 24 points, including a key 3-pointer in the final minute, to help Los Angeles end a three-game losing streak.

Chris Kaman added 25 points on 10-for-15 shooting and had seven rebounds for Los Angeles. Kevin Durant scored a season-high 40 points and had eight rebounds for Oklahoma City, which was seeking what would have been only its second three-game winning streak since the club moved from Seattle before last season.
