PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) Marcin Gortat hit big shots at the end of regulation and overtime, helping the Phoenix Suns end a three-game losing streak with an 84-83 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night.
Gortat hit a runner with 13 seconds left in regulation to send the game to overtime and scored on a hard drive with 45 seconds left in the extra period.
Derrick Williams followed with a 3-pointer that cut Phoenix's lead to 84-83 and Nikola Pekovic blocked Wesley Johnson's runner at the other end to give the Timberwolves a shot. Alexey Shved got a good look, but his layup rolled off the rim.
