    Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork. [b]Aaron Sanchez Blue Jays Jersey[/b] .com) - Goran Dragic finished with 21 points and eight assists as the Phoenix Suns cruised past the Minnesota Timberwolves for a 110-99 victory on Friday. Gerald Green scored 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting from the field, Eric Bledsoe chipped in 16 and Alex Len pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds for the Suns, who have won five straight home games. We tried to end this game a little sooner, not to be close until the end of the game, said Dragic. Its a good win for us. I think were finally playing better at home. Mo Williams netted 26 points, half of his career-high output from Tuesday, Andrew Wiggins scored 17 and Thaddeus Young finished with 13 points, eight boards and six assists for the Timberwolves, who were unable to build upon their 107-100 win over Cleveland on Tuesday that ended a 15-game skid. Theyve got a lot of weapons and theyve got some length, Williams said of the Suns. Theyre athletic. They made some tough shots. Minnesota started out shooting 8-for-8 from the field, but Dragic scored seven straight points to give the Suns a 21-17 lead moments later and the score was 32-27 going into the second quarter. Wiggins and Robbie Hummel hit consecutive treys during a 14-4 flurry, but Bledsoe and Green scored eight straight points for the Suns to go back in front. Zach LaVines layup capped a string of six straight points as Minnesota pulled within, 59-56, heading into halftime. Phoenixs lead swelled to 13 points late in the third quarter as Mason Plumlee and Marcus Morris each score four points during a 10-1 run as the Suns held an 86-75 advantage heading into the final frame. Green drained back-to-back triples for a 100-86 Phoenix lead with 7:08 to play and the Suns led comfortably the rest of the way. Game Notes Phoenix is 15-5 in its last 20 games against Minnesota ... The Suns are 2-0 on an eight-game homestand which continues against the Lakers on Monday ... The Suns shot 48-of-87 from the field (55.2 percent), while the Timberwolves were just 42-of-91 (46.2 percent) ... The two teams will meet again on Feb. 20 in Minnesota.

Congratulations Novak, six Australian Opens, an incredible feat, and incredible consistency the last year.
