Phoenix Suns swingman Gerald Green capped a game-ending 7-0 run by hitting the game-winning jumper from the baseline with 3.9 seconds remaining to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 104-103 on Wednesday night.

Goran Dragic drove to the basket after getting a screen from Channing Frye, but he lost the handle and had to dump the ball off to Markieff Morris. Morris flipped the ball to Green, who pulled up from the baseline and buried the game-winner with time winding down.

Despite early foul trouble, Green scored 14 points—the last two being the most important of all.
