Suns vs Timberwolves recap: Phoenix unable to complete comeback, fall 111-107

USA TODAY Sports

Despite a strong offensive showing from four of the five starters, the Phoenix Suns had no answer defensively for Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Despite a season-high 33 points and 10 rebounds from Luis Scola, the Phoenix Suns couldn't slow down the Minnesota Timberwolves offense in Phoenix's 111-107 loss at the Target Center on Saturday.

The Suns once again fell behind early in the game, finding themselves down six at halftime on the road against Kevin Love and the T'Wolves. But the team cut the deficit to just two by the end of the third quarter.

Unfortunately, the Suns offense couldn't keep up the production from the three previous quarters, scoring just 20 points in the fourth quarter and ultimately falling 111-107.

The difference in the game may have been the bench scoring, as the Suns received just ten points from their bench while the T'Wolves bench more than doubled that with 24 from theirs.

Goran Dragic scored 16 points and dished out 12 assists for the Suns. Minnesota's big man Nikola Pekovic starred, scoring an efficient 28 points and collecting 11 rebounds, six of which came on the offensive end.
