Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Cliff Robinson scored 30 points and hit all 12 of his free throws as the Phoenix Suns survived a furious fourth quarter by Cuttino Mobley and held on for a 104-99 victory over the Houston Rockets.

Robinson connected on 9-of-20 shots. He sanke four free throws in the final 28 seconds as the Suns remained unbeaten in three games since a loss at Golden State opening night.

Holding a comfortable 78-64 lead with 11:17 to play after Rodney Rogers buried a 24-footer, the Suns watched helplessly as Mobley took his game to another level. The streaky 6-4 guard buried 7-of-10 shots over the next 10 minutes, scoring 19 of his 27 points in the final period.

Mobley's five-footer with 47 seconds to play drew Houston within 98-95 but he committed his sixth foul during the ensuing sequence and Robinson buried two from the line to make it 100-95 with 28 seconds left.

Steve Francis, who scored 24 points, made a layup and was fouled on Houston's next trip. But the flashy point guard misfired from the line and Robinson again converted two shots from the line, sealing the victory with 18 seconds remaining.

Rogers and Jason Kidd scored 18 points apiece for the Suns, who improved to 22-7 in November over the last four years and have won 10 of the last 15 meetings from the Rockets.
