Magnificence is apparently overrated

This article from the canadian press phrased well just how little sense our loss to the Timberwolves made. Or just how long it's going to take for my jaw to be lifted from its now-permanent spot on the floor.


"Maybe the Phoenix Suns were a little tired after scoring all those points on this road trip.

Maybe on the second game of a back-to-back, and the finale of a five-game trip, the NBA's offensive juggernaut took the league's worst team a little too lightly.

Or maybe the frigid Minnesota winter chilled Steve Nash and the red-hot Suns on a day when temperatures dipped well below zero.

Whatever the reason, the success-starved Timberwolves will take any win they can get, any way they can get it.

The magnificent Suns' offence fell flat in the second half and Al Jefferson tied a career-high with 32 points to go with 20 rebounds to carry the Timberwolves to a 100-93 victory on Saturday night.

"Whatever it was, we're glad to have it," Jefferson said.



Yeah, I'll bet...
