PHOENIX — Goran Dragic scored 18 points to lead a balanced Phoenix offense and the Suns used a big second-half run to beat the Orlando Magic 109-93 on Wednesday night.
Gerald Green added 14 points, including three 3-pointers during a 23-3 Phoenix outburst that turned what had been a close game into a runaway.
Channing Frye and Markieff Morris added 12 apiece and Miles Plumlee had 10 points and nine rebounds for the Suns, back from a 2-1 eastern trip.
Tobias Harris scored 23 points and Arron Afflalo had 20 for the Magic, who are 1-22 on the road since mid-December.
Orlando, already without Jameer Nelson (sore left knee), lost center Nicola Vucevic when he drew two quick technical fouls and was ejected with 2:32 left in the first quarter.
