Well, the 13th game wasn’t the charm tonight, as the Wolves fought hard but fell to the Phoenix, running their losing streak to 13 games.
Here are some final thoughts on the night:
--The killer play of the game came with 57.6 seconds left. The Wolves, down three, were coming out of a time out when Chase Budinger’s in-bounds pass was intercepted by Eric Bledsoe, who scored at the other end. It was a very bad finish to a rather strong game for Budinger off the bench.
--Mo Williams played very well tonight, but he turned his right ankle at the end of his 23-point, 11-assist game and might not be able to play Friday in Milwaukee. We’ll know more Thursday.
--Andrew Wiggins had a very strong game tonight. He hit on 10 of 16 shots and scored 25 points.
--Anthony Bennett came off the bench to score 14 points with 10 rebounds in 22-plus minutes of playing time. If he could only give that kind of energy every time……
--Shabazz Muhammad scored all 12 of his points in the third quarter.
--Starters Thad Young (6-for-18) and Gorgui Dieng (3-for-10) were a combined 9-for-28 tonight.
That’s about it for now. I’ll get back to you after Thursday’s practice.
