Suns send Timberwolves to franchise-worst 16th straight loss

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- It didn't match the dominance of a 152-114 victory over Minnesota in their last meeting, but Phoenix's play on Sunday night was still sufficient to hand Minnesota their 16th straight loss, 111-105 at the Target Center.

Minnesota's losing streak ties a franchise-worst, dating back to their pre-Kevin Garnett days from Feb. 29-March 29, 1992.

The 14-59 Timberwolves also had a 15-game slide earlier this season. After winning the opening game of the season against the New Jersey Nets, they didn't notch their second victory until an unlikely victory on the road against Denver on November 29.

Minnesota has given up more points per game (107.6) than any other team in the league other than Golden State. And Minnesota's opponents are averaging 112.7 points and shooting 48.8 percent during the current losing streak.

Phoenix, on the other hand, is the proud owner of a seven-game win streak, the best active streak in the league. They have won 21 of their last 26 games and have improved their standing in the tightly-packed playoff race in the Western Conference.

Currently in the five spot, Phoenix could drop as far as eighth, yet they are only 1 1/2 games behind second-place Denver.

Minnesota kept it close in the first quarter, after which then trailed by one. But the Suns blew the game open in the second quarter, going on a 31-8 run and leading 66-44 at half.

Despite trailing by 25 points, Minnesota slowly chipped away at Phoenix's lead throughout the third quarter and into the fourth. The got as close as 89-88 with 8:30 to play, but Alvin Gentry promptly put Steve Nash, Jason Richardson, and Amar'e Stoudemire back in the game.

"I knew that there would be a reaction from [Minnesota]," Gentry said. "These guys are prideful guys and I knew they were not just going to lay down. Even when we had the big lead, I knew that they were going to keep playing. ...They put themselves in a position to win. We had to have Amar'e have another one of his great games to rescue us."

Stoudemire scored a game-high 30 points and grabbed 17 rebounds and Nash, Richardson and Stoudemire accounted for all of Phoenix's final 19 points in the game.

In the first half, Channing Frye helped stake the Suns to a big lead courtesy of the long ball. In the previous three games against Minnesota, Frye was 12-for-19 (.631) from beyond the arc. He continued that success on Sunday, hitting four of his first five 3's and finishing with 17 points.

Kevin Love was a bright spot for Minnesota, recording his career first 20/20 game with 23 points and 22 rebounds. Al Jefferson added 19 points and 16 rebounds.
