The Suns face off with the Timberwolves for the third time this season tonight. They'll be hoping for a better showing than they had the last time they were in Minnesota, when they became one of just six marks in the win column for the Timberwolves this season. The Suns are coming off of last night's last minute victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, but should still be fresher than they were in that December game which was the final game of a five-game trip, and the fourth in five nights. When the Suns faced the Timberwolves Saturday, it was the first of two consecutive 20+ point blowouts at home, and despite Al Jefferson again having a big night, the Suns held the Timberwolves to 95 points while scoring 115 themselves. Another effort like that one will do nicely.
