PHOENIX—Luis Scola had 26 points and 15 rebounds, Goran Dragic added 21 points and 14 assists and Phoenix snapped a franchise-record seven-game home losing streak with a 119-112 victory over the Houston Rockets Monday night in the Suns’ final home game of the season.

Markieff Morris had 20 points and had career highs of six blocked shots and five steals for the Suns, who despite the victory finished with the second-worst home record in club history.

Carlos Delfino scored 22, including 6 of 9-3-pointers, and Jeremy Lin 20 for the Rockets, whose loss was a blow in their bid for the No. 6 playoff spot in the West.

James Harden managed just 15 points on 5-for-18 shooting, 0 for 7 from 3-point range. That’s 10.5 points below his season average.
