The Minnesota Timberwolves dropped their sixth straight game on Monday night to the Phoenix Suns by 24 points on national television, 114-90. It's the longest losing streak of the season for the Timberwolves.
Injuries have decimated the Timberwolves this season and playing shorthanded against a hot Phoenix Suns didn't do them any favors Monday night. The Suns, who have now won five of their last six, never trailed after tying the game at 4-4 and put the game away for good when they increased their 15-point lead they had going into the fourth quarter to 27 by the 5:22 mark.
Markieff Morris led the Suns with 21 points. Kevin Love led the Timberwolves with 25 points and 13 rebounds.
Minnesota hope to end their losing ways in Denver on Wednesday.
