Notebook: Wolves 110, Suns 101


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Feb 26, 2014 1:14 AM - Updated Wed Feb 26, 2014 1:14 AM

THE FACT: Timberwolves star and All-Star Game starter Kevin Love extended his franchise record with his sixth straight game scoring 30 or more points (33).

THE LEAD: The Minnesota Timberwolves roared from behind late, pulling away from the Phoenix Suns for a 110-101 win on Tuesday night.

Love led the Wolves (28-29) with 33 points, 13 boards and nine assists. Rookie Shabazz Muhammad, who had never scored more than 12 points in a game, fired in 20 points.

The Suns (33-23) got 24 points off the bench from Markieff Morris. Star guard Goran Dragic was held in check by the Timberwolves. He scored 16 points and had just three assists. He also fouled out trying to follow his own missed jumper with 3:45 left and the Suns leading, 95-94.

The Timberwolves, though missing key players Nikola Pekovic, Kevin Martin and Rony Turiaf, are gamely hanging on the fringe of the playoff race at No. 10. They have won four of their past five.

The Suns, though winning nine of their past 14 games, have slipped to No. 8 in the West.

QUOTABLE: "I had my opportunity today."

-- Minnesota's Shabazz Muhammad

THE STAT: Love extended his streak of scoring at least 26 points and grabbing 10-plus rebounds to 11 straight games. No NBA player has done this since Shaquille O'Neal had at least 26 and 10 in 13 straight games from March 26 - Oct. 30, 2001.

TURNING POINT: The Suns led 91-83 with 7:57 left. The Timberwolves took off on a 24-6 run that gave them 107-97 lead with 31 seconds left. Included were the four Suns' turnovers in a 2:00 period, including one in which P.J. Tucker stepped over the end line inbounding the ball after a Timberwolves' hoop. The 24-6 spurt included a 15-2 run after Dragic fouled out.

QUOTABLE II: "Every practice, he kept working. What I liked about him was he stayed within his strengths. He rebounded, he posted up."
-- Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman on Muhammad

QUOTABLE III: "We kind of owed them."
-- Minnesota's Kevin Love, referring to a loss to the Suns on Jan. 8

HOT: The Wolves' Corey Brewer shot 7-for-9.

NOT: Suns starting forwards Channing Frye and Tucker combined to shoot 4-for-17.

ROOKIE WATCH: In addition to Muhammad, the Suns' Archie Goodwin had 10 points and five rebounds in 16 minutes. The two rookies sometimes went directly against each other.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Minnesota's Dante Cunningham, who averages 5.8 points and 4.3 rebounds, has been a factor the past four games, averaging 11.3 points and 5.8 rebounds.

NOTABLE: Eric Bledsoe is getting closer to a return for the Suns. The guard, who has missed every game since Jan. 2 with a knee injury, played three-on-three on Monday and two-on-two on Tuesday. No exact date has been set for his return. The Suns are 16-8 in the games he's played...The Timberwolves outscored the Suns 35-20 in the fourth quarter. The minus-15 point differential was the second-worst of the season for the Suns in the final quarter...This was the start of the Suns' 14th back-to-back set (out of 18 total). They are 7-7 in the first night and 7-6 on the second night. They play at Utah Wednesday night.

UP NEXT: For the Timberwolves, Saturday @ Sacramento, Monday @ Denver and Wednesday vs. Knicks. For the Suns, Wednesday @ Utah, Friday vs. Pelicans and SundSlay vs. Hawks.
