PHOENIX —Takeaways from the Rockets' 118-110 win against the Phoenix Suns on Monday night: The Rockets likely would not have celebrated a win against the Suns even if they had made the 20-point lead last. They were not thrilled with needing to count on their stars to take over down the stretch. They'll get over it. They were not kidding themselves, anyway. They knew the defense was shaky through the first half. They need to get the defense to be solid and consistent. For now, without Clint Capela to provide rim protection and with Eric Gordon sitting out Monday, there are too many breakdowns. Yet, things never got too tense, either.
