November 16, 2009|Associated Press

PHOENIX — Amare Stoudemire followed one of the worst games of his career with his best game of the season, scoring 30 points to lead Phoenix to a 101-100 victory over Toronto on Sunday night, the Suns' 11th consecutive win over the Raptors.

The Suns' 13th consecutive home-court victory improved their record to an NBA-best 9-2.

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. They also are 18-3 at home since Alvin Gentry became coach.

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

Toronto led, 100-98, with 51.5 seconds to go. However, Nash scored on a driving layup with 38.9 seconds left and was fouled by Jose Calderon. Nash converted the free throw to break the 100-100 tie.
