PHOENIX (AP) -

Gerald Green scored 25 of his career-high 41 points in the third quarter and the Phoenix Suns erased a 16-point deficit to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 128-122 on Thursday night.

Markieff Morris added 24 points, including two free throws with 24.4 seconds to play. Goran Dragic scored 22, including six of the Suns' final 12 points after Oklahoma City led 118-116.

Russell Westbrook scored a season-high 36 for the Thunder. Kevin Durant added 34.

Green's outburst fell one point shy of a Suns record for most points in a quarter set by Stephon Marbury in 2002.

It was Phoenix's second 40-point performance in four games. Dragic had 40 against New Orleans on Friday.
