PHOENIX, March 13 (UPI) -- Dwight Howard struck for 26 points and 15 rebounds Sunday, powering the Orlando Magic to their first win in Phoenix since 2001, a 111-88 victory.

All five Magic starters scored in double figures, including Brandon Bass with 17 points. Gilbert Arenas came off the bench to add 16 for Orlando, which broke an eight-game losing streak on the Suns' home court.

Jameer Nelson contributed a trio of 3-pointers en route to 14 points for the Magic.

Aaron Brooks had 19 points and 10 assists for the Suns, who were playing without Steve Nash. The all-star guard missed the game with a strained groin.

Phoenix shot only 38.8 percent from the floor while dropping its fourth game in six contests.
