DENVER — Markieff Morris scored 25 points and Gerald Green added 19, helping the Phoenix Suns rally for a 103-99 win over the Denver Nuggets on Friday night.
Goran Dragic contributed 17 points, including two big layups down the stretch, as the Suns won for the sixth time in seven games. They did most of their work behind the 3-point line, with Green tying a career-high with six. Phoenix was 12 of 34 from long range.
Wilson Chandler had 15 points for the Nuggets, who lost their second straight game at Pepsi Center to drop to 7-5 at home on the season. They were a franchise-best 38-3 last season.
Ty Lawson was in the lineup despite coming down with a case of the stomach flu on Thursday. He was slightly off his game, shooting 3 of 11 and finishing with 13 points.
