WASHINGTON (AP) -- Eric Bledsoe and Markieff Morris each scored 17 points, Goran Dragic added 16 and the Phoenix Suns beat Washington 104-92 on Sunday night to end the Wizards' winning streak at six.

The Suns finished 3-0 on their trip after losing six in a row. They opened the road swing in Charlotte on Wednesday night and beat New York on Saturday.

Rasual Butler led the Wizards with 17 points, and Kevin Seraphin had a season-high 16.

After a 50-50 tie at halftime, the Suns outplayed Washington in the third quarter, taking a 13-point lead with 1:30 to play. Dragic was 5 for 6 in the quarter, scoring 12 points.

Washington cut it to 95-89 on Paul Pierce's layup with 2:40 to play, but the Suns scored nine straight - seven by Bledsoe - to take a 104-89 lead with 1:01 to play.


Suns: Rookie swingman Zoran Dragic, Goran's brother, has played 2 minutes all season. Coach Jeff Hornacek says Zoran Dragic is progressing in practice, but doesn't foresee general manager Ryan McDonough sending him to Bakersfield of the D-League. "If he wants to go down there and get his rhythm in some games, we'll do that. I don't think Ryan has any intention of sending him down there unless he wants to," Hornacek said. ... Phoenix is 2-6 in its eight back-to-backs this season and is 7-1 on the road against Eastern Conference teams.

Wizards: Coach Randy Wittman says swingman Martell Webster continues to near a return from June back surgery. He's still not sure of Webster's season debut. "I can't tell you when it's going to be, but he's making progress," Wittman said. ... Washington hasn't won seven straight since Jan. 2-15, 2005. ... The Wizards had won eight straight home games. .... Washington had a season-low 11 assists.


Suns: Host Dallas on Tuesday night.
