Recap: Phoenix vs. Charlotte

Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Shannon Brown connected on five 3-pointers en route to a team-high 26 points as the Phoenix Suns rolled over the floundering Charlotte Bobcats, 121-104, at US Airways Center.

Goran Dragic and Jared Dudley each added four shots from beyond the arc as Phoenix shot 17-for-28 from three-point range in the contest.

Dragic finished with 21 points and 11 assists, while Dudley had 20 points for the Suns, who stretched their season-high win streak to four games.

Kemba Walker paced the Bobcats with a game-high 27 points and Michael Kidd- Gilchrist followed with 25 to go along with 12 rebounds for Charlotte, which lost its 13th straight game.

Phoenix held a 28-27 lead at the end of the first quarter after a back-and- forth opening 12 minutes that saw seven lead changes and four ties, but the Suns were quickly able to pull away in the second, opening the frame with a 13-2 run to jump ahead, 41-29.

Walker put a halt to the run with a 3-pointer and then went 1-for-2 at the foul line to get the Bobcats back within eight points before Phoenix exploded with a 14-3 push to take a commanding 55-36 advantage with 4:07 left in the half.

Charlotte would get no closer than 17 points for the remainder of the frame and Phoenix took a 64-46 cushion into the break.

The Suns connected on 60.9 percent (14-of-23) of their shots in the decisive second quarter as their bench scored 32 of 36 total points in the stanza and held the Bobcats to just 20 percent (3-for-15) from the floor.

Phoenix then cruised through the second half as their lead fluctuated between 14 and 30 points over the final 24 minutes.
