PHOENIX (AP) - Gerald Green hit six 3-pointers and scored 22 points, Miles Plumlee grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds, and the Phoenix Suns dominated the paint in a 117-90 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night.
Plumlee added 17 points while having his way inside with an ailing Pao Gasol in the Suns' third straight win.
Marcus Morris added 19 points on 5-of-6 shooting from 3-point range for Phoenix, which held a 62-39 edge on the boards in their eighth win in nine games.
Nick Young scored 19 points and Jodie Meeks 18 for the undermanned Lakers, who fell to 1-2 since Kobe Bryant was sidelined with a knee injury.
Gasol, who sat out Saturday's loss to Golden State with an upper respiratory infection, started but had little energy as Plumlee scored on alley-oop dunks, post moves and putbacks.
