as the Clippers point guard

    导出博客文章MINNEAPOLIS -- Karl-Anthony Towns has watched his Minnesota Timberwolves give up
    so many leads this season that he had finally had enough.Once he made up his
    mind, the Phoenix Suns couldnt hold him down.Towns had 28 points and 15
    rebounds, and the Timberwolves beat the Phoenix Suns 115-108 on Monday night.I
    was going to do everything in my power and my part to ensure we didnt come out
    of tonight with a loss, Towns said.Andrew Wiggins scored 26 points and Zach
    LaVine added 23 for the Timberwolves. Ricky Rubio had 12 assists and Minnesota
    picked up its first win at home since Nov. 17.Eric Bledsoe scored 27 points for
    the Suns, who have lost three straight and four out of five. Brandon Knight had
    21 points off the bench and Devin Booker scored 18 on 6-for-15 shooting for
    Phoenix.The game figured to be heavy on offense, with two young teams far more
    concerned with putting the ball in the basket than stopping anyone on the other
    end.The Suns came into the game second in the league in pace, second in
    fast-break points and third in points off turnovers. And the Wolves are the
    first team in history to have three 21-year-olds averaging at least 20 points
    per game.One thing we know we need to get better at is our toughness, Suns coach
    Earl Watson said. Thats not a stat. We have to become more feisty because we are
    small on the perimeter.The Wolves built a 14-point lead in the first half, but
    have given away double-digit leads all season long. They were coming off a
    particularly disheartening loss against Houston on Saturday night in which they
    blew a 12-point lead with two minutes to play before losing in overtime.Phoenix
    cut the deficit to two points several times in the fourth, but the Wolves had an
    answer each time.After Phoenix cut the Wolves lead to 105-103 with four minutes
    to play, Towns grabbed two offensive rebounds against Tyson Chandler, who ranks
    fifth in the NBA in rebounding, and scored on the second putback after getting
    fouled.Towns let out a yell and pounded his bicep, then swished the free throw
    for a five-point lead. The play ignited a 10-2 run that put away the game.Even
    missing the first one, I was determined to get that second one, Towns said. I
    wouldve gotten a foul running over someone to get it. Every single ounce of
    energy I had left to make sure I go up and get that ball.That kind of intensity
    is what Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau has been trying to instill from the
    start.Great, multiple-effort play, Thibodeau said. Thats will and determination
    and often times thats the difference right there between winning and
    losing.TIP-INSSuns: Knight made 8 of 13 shots, and his efficiency in the first
    half kept the game from getting away from the Suns while Booker and Bledsoe
    started 3 for 14. ... Jared Dudley scored 12 and Leandro Barbosa had 10 points
    for the Suns bench, which outscored Minnesotas 44-20. ... The Suns missed 10
    free throws.Timberwolves: Rubio made two technical free throws to run his streak
    to 34 straight without a miss. Thats the longest active streak in the league
    after Stephen Currys ended at 44 in a row last week. ... The Wolves went 24 for
    25 from the line.VOLATILE SUNSMarqueese Chriss and P.J. Tucker both picked up
    technical fouls for arguing with the officials, and the Suns had trouble keeping
    their composure for much of the night. Chriss was particularly erratic, barking
    at officials Monty McCutcheon, David Guthrie and Kane Fitzgerald and wrestling
    with Towns under the basket.Tucker voiced his displeasure often while guarding
    Wiggins, with officials not letting him play as physical as the burly forward
    likes to on that end.We let it get to us early as far as the refs and the other
    team, we let it get to us and we could never recuperate from it, Bledsoe said.UP

    . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with
    the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. DALLAS -- Chris Paul had to be reminded
    that the Los Angeles Clippers are up to an NBA-leading 14 wins.They wont get
    much easier than this one over the injury-plagued Dallas Mavericks.Paul scored
    18 points, DeAndre Jordan had 16 points and eight rebounds and the Clippers
    cruised past the Mavericks 124-104 on Wednesday night in a matchup of the teams
    with the best and worst records in the NBA.I honestly didnt know we had 14 wins,
    said Paul, who added four assists and four steals. I know we have two losses.
    But for us, when youve been in this league for a while, its not necessarily
    about the wins. Its about how youre playing and about the spirit.Dirk Nowitzki
    scored 10 points on 3-of-10 shooting in 20 minutes in his return for Dallas
    after the 13-time All-Star missed eight games with a strained left Achilles
    tendon.Austin Rivers added 22 points -- half of them in a meaningless fourth
    quarter -- for the Clippers. They had a 30-6 run in the second and third
    quarters on the way to their fourth straight win and 11th in 12 games.Harrison
    Barnes had 22 to lead the Mavericks (2-12). They lost their seventh straight
    game to match their longest skid since February 1999, during Nowitzkis rookie
    season.Dallas, missing its top three point guards and facing a trip to defending
    champion Cleveland, is off to its worst start since going 1-23 in 1993-94. The
    Mavericks started the week with a valiant effort in a loss at San Antonio.This
    is obviously as tough a week as you can get in the NBA, Nowitzki said. So
    hopefully well fight through this and grind out a win here and there. And when
    the schedule turns in our favor hopefully get more healthy and run off some
    wins. Thats the only way to do it.Blake Griffin had 12 points, seven assists and
    six rebounds, all in the first three quarters along with the rest of the
    starters. The Clippers led by 31 in the third.Rivers scored 11 points in the
    first half, including 3-pointers just four seconds apart after he hit one, stole
    the inbound pass and made another. He was 6 of 7 from long
    range.TIP-INSClippers: LA shot 61 percent in the first half and made 9 of 14
    from 3-point range. ... Marrreese Speights scored 16 and Jamal Crawford added 15
    as the Clippers had a 65-43 advantage in bench scoring.dddddddddddd ... Speights
    had his first double-double with a season-high 12 rebounds. The 16 points
    matched his season high. ... JJ Redick had 10 points.Mavericks: PG Deron
    Williams sat for the eighth time in nine games with a left calf strain. He said
    hes hopeful to play next week. ... C Andrew Bogut was called for a flagrant foul
    on a hip-check of Paul as the Clippers point guard drove to the basket. Paul
    jumped up and went at Bogut, and the pair kept jawing as the referees prepared
    to review the play. ... Bogut had 12 rebounds and six assists after missing a
    game with a sore right calf.COWBOY UPThe Clippers will stay in the Dallas area
    to attend the Washington Redskins-Dallas Cowboys game on Thanksgiving before
    continuing a six-game trip Friday at Detroit. Paul is a well-documented fan of
    the Cowboys, who have the NFLs best record at 9-1. He wore the jersey of rookie
    running back Ezekiel Elliott, the NFLs rushing leader, on the flight from Los
    Angeles. Paul has attended Cowboys training camp in the LA area.While
    acknowledging that his team has a bevy of Dallas fans, Clippers coach and
    Chicago Bears fan Doc Rivers had a parting shot for reporters. Im not going to
    call you any of you guys bandwagon, OK, but this is the first time you guys have
    mentioned the Cowboys in like four years, Rivers said.LOSING THE LUSTERThe boos
    were still there for Jordan, who spurned the Mavericks in free agency in the
    summer of 2015 after agreeing to join them. But they werent quite as loud or
    persistent as the 6-foot-11 centers two visits last season.UP NEXTClippers: The
    visit to the Pistons on the seasons longest trip is the first of four straight
    against Eastern Conference teams. Defending champion Cleveland is the last of
    those four opponents.Mavericks: A quick trip to face LeBron James, another
    Cowboys fan, and the Cavaliers on Friday before home games against New Orleans
    and San Antonio. Wholesale
