Recap: Timberwolves 86, Suns 77



Posted Wed Jul 16, 2014 8:05 PM - Updated Wed Jul 16, 2014 8:05 PM

The 24th-seeded Minnesota Timberwolves upset the ninth-seeded Phoenix Suns, 86-77 in the first game of the championship tournament portion of the Samsung NBA Summer League 2014 this afternoon as the teams matched up at Cox Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The Timberwolves' were led by Zach LaVine's 20 points and a balanced attack that featured three other starters scoring in double figures, including Kyrylo Fesenko's 17 points and Shabazz Muhammad's 17-point outing.

The game marks the second time in as many seasons that the NBA Summer League Championship that the lowest seeded team defeated their higher seeded opponent as the 22nd-seeded Denver Nuggets defeated the 11th-seeded New Orleans Hornets, 87-82, in the 2013 desert classic.

A tightly contested battle throughout, the first half featured three ties, and two lead changes, with the Timberwolves going up by as many as eight points and the Suns being ahead by as many as five. Fesenko had 12 first-half points on six-of-seven shooting, while Phoenix' Elias Harris put together a 10-point first half. The Timberwolves were up 37-34 at the half and never looked back.

In a do-or-die game, Phoenix's TJ Warren took matters into his own hands in the third quarter. He scored 16 points and connected on seven-of-eight of his shots to keep the Suns in the game, but his effort wasn't enough. His team trailed by four, 57-53, going into the final quarter. Minnesota hung on to their lead in the fourth, outscoring the Suns 29-24 in the quarter en route to the victory.

With the win, the Timberwolves advance in the championship bracket to play the eighth-seeded Sacramento Kings tomorrow, while the Suns finish their summer season in the consolation bracket, matching up against either the Charlotte Hornets or Dallas Mavericks.
