MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Gerald Green scored 15 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter to scorch his former team and the Phoenix Suns handed the Minnesota Timberwolves their 13th straight loss, 113-111 on Wednesday night.
Green hit three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, helping the Suns wipe away a seven-point deficit to start the period in the blink of an eye. Goran Dragic added 25 points and the Suns (22-16) survived a scare from the undermanned Timberwolves to win for the 10th time in 12 games.
Andrew Wiggins scored 25 points, but missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have won the game for the Timberwolves, who haven’t won since Dec. 10. Mo Williams added 23 points and 11 assists and the Wolves led by as many as 13 points. But they turned the ball over 22 times to fall to 5-29 on the season.
