The Rockets of the renewed Garuba sink in the last place in the West after falling to the leaders Suns


The Houston Rockets of Spanish power forward Usman Garuba, whom the Texan franchise has renewed until the 2023-24 season, are still in free fall after losing again this morning against the leaders of the West, Phoenix Suns (124-109), and sink into the last place of the same conference.

On Sunday, the Rockets announced that they were exercising their unilateral option to extend the Castilian-Manchego contract until 2024, guaranteeing a third season in the NBA. However, the Spanish international could not celebrate with a victory at the Footprint Center in Phoenix.

Houston (1-6), bottom of the West, succumbed precisely to the Conference leaders, the Suns (5-1), who relied on the 30 points of point guard Devin Booker. Garuba spent 12 minutes on the court, in which he scored 2 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, offered 1 assist and recovered a ball.
