Rockets take a 7 point lead into the 2nd quarter thanks to a good defensive effort, some missed shots on Suns open looks, and a great effort from Marcus Camby. The veteran center turned back the clock in the 1st quarter with a great effort. Through the 1st quarter Camby has 8 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and 3 blocks. On pace for 32 points, 44 rebounds, 16 assists, 8 steals, and 12 blocks.
Goran Dragic winning the match-up of student vs. the master against Steve Nash; at least on points. So far Dragic has 4 points to 0 from Nash; the Suns veteran did have 6 assists. Kyle Lowry also saw action but didn't check in until late in the quarter.
