PHOENIX (AP) -

Goran Dragic scored 40 points, his second career high in three games, and the Phoenix Suns pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 116-104 Friday night, snapping a three-game losing streak.

Dragic was a game-time decision because of a sore right ankle that had kept him out of Wednesday's loss at Utah, but played all but the last 10 seconds of the second half in the first 40-point game for a Phoenix player since Amare Stoudemire's 44 on March 19, 2010.

Anthony Davis, also a game-time decision because of a sprained left shoulder, matched his career high with 32 points for the Pelicans, who lost their sixth in a row.

Markieff Morris added 18 points and twin brother Marcus 15 for Phoenix.

Eric Gordon scored 21 for New Orleans.
