(Newser) – Down by six entering the fourth quarter, the stars of the Phoenix Suns emerged to lead their team to a 114-105 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Steve Nash scored 15 of his season-high 37 points and Amare Stoudemire notched 10 of his 19 in the final period as Phoenix became the first Western Conference team to reach the 30-win mark, reports the Associated Press.

Grant Hill returned after missing two weeks to undergo an appendectomy and scored eight points in 27 minutes. Michael Redd led the Bucks with 28 points, on 10-of-20 shooting, and Andrew Bogut had 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Milwaukee’s starting point guard, Mo Williams, missed the game with a sprained left pinky finger.
