Steve Nash had 14 points and 15 assists, leading the Phoenix Suns to a 104-92 victory over the Golden State Warriors on his 37th birthday Monday night.
Channing Frye had 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Grant Hill scored 18 to help the Suns build a 23-point lead and hold on late.
They made 13 3-pointers and shot 43 percent from the floor.
Monta Ellis scored 21 points and David Lee had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Warriors, who got within five in the fourth quarter but could not come all the way back.
This was the vintage Suns on display for most of the night.
The Warriors play the final game of their current 8-game homestand on Wednesday when Denver visits Oakland.
