Suns rally past Lakers to spoil Nash’s returnPHOENIX - Michael Beasley scored a season-high 27 points and the Phoenix Suns rallied from 13 down in the fourth quarter to hand the Los Angeles Lakers their eighth-straight road loss, 92-86, on Wednesday.
The dramatic comeback came in Steve Nash’s first game in Phoenix since he left for the Lakers after last season.
The Lakers, who had won three straight - all at home, lost Dwight Howard when he reinjured his right shoulder with 6:57 to play.
Beasley, whose previous season best of 25 came two games earlier, scored on a scrambling layup as the shot clock was expiring to put the Suns ahead 88-86 with 43.8 seconds to play.
Kobe Bryant had 17 points and nine assists, but missed what would have been the tying layup with 24 seconds to play. Howard had nine points and 14 rebounds. Metta World Peace scored 15 and Pau Gasol 14.
The Lakers played the first of seven straight on the road, where they haven’t won since Dec. 22.
