Amare Stoudemire scored 41 points and Steve Nash had 36 as the Phoenix Suns rallied from a 22-point deficit to beat the Denver Nuggets 132-117. That's the Suns' 50th victory of the season.

In reaching at least 50 wins for the fourth straight season, the Suns tied the idle Los Angeles Lakers for first place in the Pacific Division.

The comeback matched the third-best in Suns' history. They also rallied from a 22-point second-period deficit against the Boston Celtics in 1994.

Stoudemire had 16 points in the fourth quarter when the Suns outscored Denver 46-25.

J.R. Smith led the Nuggets with 23.
