PHOENIX -- Marcin Gortat scored a season-high 22 points in only three quarters and the Phoenix Suns routed the Portland Trail Blazers 114-87 on Wednesday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

Markieff Morris and Shannon Brown, inserted into the starting lineup earlier Wednesday, combined for 29 points for the Suns. Morris had 19 points and seven rebounds, and Brown added 10, including a pair of 3-pointers as Phoenix rallied from a four-point deficit in the opening minutes to take the lead for good with 7:23 left in the first quarter.

Damien Lillard had 24 points and three assists but six turnovers for the Blazers, who had won three straight.
