Love Leads Wolves To Big Win In Phoenix Tuesday
The Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Phoenix Suns 110-101 in Phoenix Tuesday night. Kevin Love again had a monster game for the Wolves, posting 33 points with 13 rebounds and nine assists.
Love averaged an NBA-best 33.7 PPG during the month of February to help keep the Wolves alive in the playoff race with key players Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin sidelined for a big portion of the month.
Phoenix led by four points going into the final quarter, but the Wolves pulled away with a 35-point quarter for the win.
Minnesota gains a game in the standings and now trail the Suns by 5.5 games for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West. The Wolves are at Sacramento Saturday.
