PHOENIX (AP) — Markieff Morris scored 24 points, Eric Bledsoe had 18 points and nine assists and the Phoenix Suns beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 106-97 on Wednesday night.
Rookie T.J. Warren added a career-high 17 points, and Marcus Thornton hit back-to-back 3-pointers early in the fourth quarter and finished with 14 points.
Warren’s dunk with 3:20 left punctuated the win. He was fouled on the basket and made the free throw to give the Suns a 12-point lead.
Kevin Martin had 16 points for Minnesota, and second-year player Justin Hamilton matched his career high with 13. The Timberwolves lost for the sixth time in seven games.
