NBA: Phoenix 102, Indiana 94

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Goran Dragic, in the midst of his best stretch of the season, scored 28 points Thursday in leading Phoenix past Indiana 102-94.

Dragic has averaged 23 points a contest during his last five games and is the chief reason the Suns have run off four wins in a row -- all on the road.


Indiana has lost just 10 times all season and has the best record in the Eastern Conference, but the Pacers have dropped both their meetings with Phoenix. The Suns downed the Pacers in Phoenix by 14 points last week.

This was only the second home setback for Indiana in 23 games.

Phoenix shot just 42 percent from the field, but the Pacers could manage only one 3-pointer in 15 attempts.

Indiana's C.J. Watson scored the first basket of the fourth period to draw the Pacers within three, but they came no closer.

Gerald Green and Marcus Morris both had 16 points for the Suns. Roy Hibbert, named earlier in the day as a reserve for the Eastern Conference All-Star team, led the Pacers with 26 points.
