Rubio's big night not enough as Suns eclipse Wolves late


Minnesota Wolves 104

Phoenix Suns 107

A barrage of fourth quarter three's allowed the Phoenix Suns to come from behind to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 107-104 Monday night in Phoenix.

It was just the third time all season the Suns have won a game when trailing heading into the fourth quarter.

1. Teletovic hits the game winner

Mirza Teletovic got red hot late, he knocked down five three-pointers in the game to score 21 points, including the game-winner with just 1.2 seconds remaining.

2. Rubio dealing dimes

Wolves point guard Ricky Rubio was showing off some of his superior passing skills Monday night. Rubio finished the night with a double-double scoring 13 points. But the real story was how he set his teammates up all night.

He equaled a team single-game record with 17 assists – 12 of them came during the first half, none prettier than how he finished the first half with less than a second to play.

3. Efficiency the name of the game for Wiggins, LaVine

Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine hit some big shots for Minnesota. LaVine finished with 28 points on 10-of-15 shooting, while Wiggins wasn't to be outdone.

He scored 22 on 9-of-14.

But it still wasn't enough for Minnesota.
