Gerald Green scored 23 points against his former team, leading six Phoenix players in double figures, and the Suns emphatically snapped Indiana's five-game winning streak with a 124-100 victory Wednesday night that matched the Pacers' most one-sided loss of the season.

Indiana, with the league's best record (33-8) and the NBA leader in scoring defense and field goal percentage defense, gave up the most points it has all season.

Goran Dragic scored 21, Markieff Morris 20, P.J. Tucker 13, Miles Plumlee 11 and Channing Frye 10 for the Suns.

Paul George scored 26, George Hill 16 and David West 13 for Indiana.

Phoenix led by 13 at the half, as many as 24 in the third quarter and 26 in the fourth.
