DENVER, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Goran Dragic put Phoenix in front for good with 2:17 to play Friday and the Suns rallied from 21 points down to shock Denver 103-99.
Phoenix won for the sixth time in seven games, overcoming a first-half road deficit to move within two games of the lead in the Pacific Division.
Dragic hit two foul shots to give the Suns a 99-97 lead and his layup with 1:01 remaining boosted the advantage to four.
The only points Denver could produce over the final three minutes came on a dunk by JJ Hickson with 19 seconds to play.
Six Denver players reached double figures in scoring, but none could produce more than the 15 delivered by Wilson Chandler.
