(NBA) Rockets beat Suns on last-second 3-pointer
(04-10 12:49)

Jermaine O'Neal was called for goaltending on James Harden's last-second 3-point attempt and Houston beat Phoenix. 101-98
Harden scored 33 points and Omer Asik tied his career high with 22 rebounds for the Rockets, who clinched a playoff berth when Utah lost to Oklahoma City, AP reports.
On the final play, Harden dribbled down the clock and shot his 3 from the wing. It bounced high off the rim and O'Neal tipped it as it came down, just after the buzzer sounded. Referees huddled on the court, then reviewed the play and ruled it the winning basket, setting off a wild celebration.
Luis Scola scored 28 points for the Suns, who have lost 10 in a row.
