Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Goran Dragic scored a game-high 26 points and Shannon Brown added 22 points off the bench as the Phoenix Suns edged the Cleveland Cavaliers, 107-105, on Friday.

The Suns trailed by seven with 4:36 left, but used a 12-4 run to take a 103-102 lead with 37.4 seconds remaining.

Kyrie Irving's layup was blocked by Marcin Gortat and Cleveland was forced to foul Dragic, who made 1-of-2 free throws.

Daniel Gibson buried a 3-pointer with 13.1 seconds left and the Cavs quickly fouled Sebastian Telfair, who split a pair of free throws.

Cleveland turned to Irving for a game-winning shot, but the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year's three was off target and the Suns held on for the win.
