PHOENIX (AP) Goran Dragic scored 25 points and the Phoenix Suns made almost 57 percent of their shots through three quarters Saturday night in a 105-95 win over the Charlotte Bobcats.

Marcus Morris added 15 points for the Suns, who have won five straight games and seven of their last eight. It's the second time the Suns have won five in a row, matching their longest winning streak of the season.

Phoenix held Charlotte to 14 second-quarter points, the lowest total in that quarter for an opponent this season.

The Suns limited Al Jefferson, Charlotte's leading scorer, to just 10 points after he'd logged three straight 30-point games. He was 4 of 15 from the field and didn't play in the fourth quarter.

Reserve Anthony Tolliver led the Bobcats with 14 points and Jannero Pargo added 12 points and six assists.
