PHOENIX, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- The Phoenix Suns scored 32 points in the fourth quarter Friday to nail down a 106-85 thumping of the visiting San Antonio Spurs.

Channing Frye added 17 points to the Suns score sheet and Ish Smith scored 15. The Phoenix bench outscored the Spurs reserves 60-34.

Phoenix won its third game in a row and closed out San Antonio's three-game winning string.

Danny Green led San Antonio with 15 points and Tim Duncan scored 13. Spurs super-sub Patty Mills' scoring streak off the bench collapsed with a woeful 2-for-14 performance from the field.

The Spurs as a team shot 34.9 percent from the field and hit just 2-of-21 from 3-point range.
