PHOENIX (AP) -- A game that was uncomfortably close for the Phoenix Suns for nearly three quarters turned into a rout in a flash.

The Suns pulled away with a 23-3 run and went on to beat the NBA's worst road team, the Orlando Magic, 109-93 on Wednesday night.

"Even going into the fourth quarter we were only down by four," Magic rookie Victor Oladipo said. "They just kind of went on a crazy run."

Goran Dragic scored 18 points to lead a balanced Phoenix offense. Gerald Green added 14 points, including three 3-pointers during the Suns' outburst.

Channing Frye and Markieff Morris added 12 apiece and Miles Plumlee had 10 points and nine rebounds for the Suns, back from a 2-1 eastern trip.

Tobias Harris scored 23 points and Arron Afflalo had 20 for the Magic, who are 1-22 on the road since mid-December and an NBA-worst 4-32 away from home for the season.

Orlando, already without Jameer Nelson (sore left knee), lost center Nicola Vucevic when he drew two quick technical fouls and was ejected with 2:32 left in the first quarter. Vucevic had eight points in 9
