Phoenix Suns hand Charlotte Bobcats 13th straight loss

PHOENIX, AZ - Shannon Brown scored a season-high 26 points and the Phoenix Suns routed the Bobcats 121-104 on Wednesday night, Charlotte's league-worst 13th straight loss.

Goran Dragic added 21 points and Jared Dudley had 20 for the Suns, who have won a season-best four straight.

Phoenix connected on a season-high 17 3-pointers on 28 attempts.

Kemba Walker scored 27 points and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 25 to match a career high for the Bobcats, who have not won since November 24.

After taking a one-point lead at the end of the first, Phoenix outscored Charlotte 22-6 over the first six-plus minutes of the second quarter to take a 50-33 lead with 5:28 left in the first half.

The Suns' biggest lead was 96-66 -- on Dudley's jumper with 37.5 seconds left in the third quarter.

Charlotte, coming off a one-point loss Tuesday against the Lakers, cut the lead in half midway through the fourth quarter and pulled to 109-95 on a 3-pointer by Walker with 4:17 remaining.

But Luis Scola scored six straight points to key a late 12-5 run that put the Suns ahead 121-100 before settling for the 17-point win.
