Timberwolves drop 15th in a row

Timberwolves drop 15th in a row

Now the Wolves are looking at the past too, only not in a good way. The 1991-92 team set the franchise's bar for futility with 16 straight losses, and the Wolves would tie that with a loss at division-leading Denver on Sunday.

Minnesota got Amare Stoudemire and Channing Frye in foul trouble in the first half but was unable to take advantage. Robin Lopez, playing in his first game of the season after having foot surgery in October, filled in with eight points and seven rebounds in 15 minutes.

Nash, who is averaging a career-high 11.8 assists in his 14th season, and the 37-year-old Hill got the Suns off and running early in this one. Nash threaded a pass through Ryan Hollins' legs to a cutting Lopez for a layup in the first quarter and had Flynn dazed and confused while he tried to figure out Nash's next move on the offensive end.

"Grant and I have been around the block a few times," Nash said. "We want to be the leaders and use our experience to help the young guys gain confidence. It's a fun group. We come in every day and we work hard, and we play together."

The Suns prefer to race up and down the court and outgun their opponents. They took a detour from that philosophy during Shaquille O'Neal's brief stay in the desert, but are right back to their high-octane ways now that O'Neal is hanging with LeBron James in Cleveland.

"There was too much thrown at us last year," Nash said. "This year, we've started with a singular vision."

Phoenix entered the night averaging a league-high 111.4 points and remain the only team to hit triple digits in every game this season. The Suns led by 10 after the first quarter, 21 after the second and 29 going into the final period.

"It seems like this is the 100th game in a row where we're down big," Flynn said. "It definitely gets to you."

Notes: Rambis on fellow Santa Clara alum Steve Nash: "He's the second-best player ever to come out of Santa Clara." ... As part of the Kurt Rambis Night festivities, the Wolves collected used pairs of reading glasses to be donated to disabled veterans. They collected more than 400 pairs. ... Suns rookie Earl Clark had 14 points on 6 of 6 shooting off the bench.
