Suns 102, Pacers 94

Goran Dragic had 28 points and seven assists and Phoenix handed Indiana just its second home loss of the season Thursday night.

Gerald Green and Marcus Morris scored 16 points apiece to help the Suns win their fourth straight game.

Roy Hibbert had 26 points and David West added 18 for the Pacers (35-10).

Morris hit a 3-pointer with 2:58 remaining to give the Suns a 98-92 lead and Dragic dunked to give the Suns a 100-94 lead with 44 seconds left.

The Suns scored 66 points in the first half — the most given up by the Pacers in a half this season since the Suns scored 62 on Indiana a week ago in a 124-100 win.

The Pacers rallied after trailing 66-49 at the break, but never could take the lead.

They went on an 8-2 run early in the second half with shots by West, Paul George, Lance Stephenson and George Hill to get within 70-53. Later, George was fouled on a layup and converted the 3-point play to make it 71-61 with 7:01 left in the third.

Miles Plumlee missed a dunk and Hibbert scored on a putback to get Indiana within eight. Channing Frye answered with a basket and then Hibbert scored Indiana’s next six points to get the Pacers within 73-69.

Pacers guard C.J. Watson scored a layup at the start of the fourth quarter to make it 77-76, but Morris scored two free throws to put the Suns back ahead by three.

Hill scored two free throws to make it 91-90 with 4:20 remaining, but Gerald Green extended the lead with two free throws and Hill made a layup before Green scored a jumper to put the Suns ahead 95-92 and Morris hit a 3-pointer with 2:58 left to give the Suns a 98-92 lead.
