Preview: The Suns’ 102-91 victory at Dallas on Wednesday ended a 10-game losing streak and was just their second victory in their past 16 games. Still, the Suns haven’t been able to catch Charlotte or Orlando in the race to get the league’s worst record and best odds to win the draft lottery. Until Wednesday’s victory, the Suns hadn’t won since beating the Lakers at home on March 18…The Wolves complete the four-game series with the Suns looking to even it at 2-2 after losing 111-107 at Target Center in December and 117-86 in Phoenix on March 22. Their one victory came 84-83 in overtime at home Feb. 26. The Wolves’ 31-point victory the last time these teams played was their second-biggest road win in team history.

Players to watch: Suns point guard Goran Dragic leads his team in points (14.7), assists (7.2), steals (1.6) and free throws attempted. The only NBA player with that same distinction on his team is Miami’s LeBron James. … Former Wolves forward Wes Johnson moved into the Suns’ starting lineup on March 8 and hasn’t left it since. He has scored 18 or more points six times in his 18 starts and is averaging 7.7 points and 2.4 rebounds in 47 games.

Injuries: Wolves C Nikola Pekovic (calf bruise) missed Friday’s game at Utah and is questionable. F Kevin Love (knee, hand surgeries), G Brandon Roy (knees) and G Malcolm Lee (hip, knee surgeries) are out. Suns C Marcin Gortat and F/G Channing Frye (enlarged heart) are out.

JERRY ZGODA
