PHOENIX -- Phoenix forward Grant Hill led a balanced attack with 20 points as the Suns stormed past the Timberwolves 104-95 last night in Arizona.
Steve Nash collected 13 points, 17 assists and eight rebounds for Phoenix, which outscored Minnesota 58-44 in the second half. Marcin Gortat netted 17 points in the victory. Kevin Love returned from a one-game absence and had 23 points and 10 boards for Minnesota. Luke Ridnour finished with 15 points and eight assists in the loss.
The Wolves dropped the final two games on their three games and three nights stretch. Minnesota is at Portland tomorrow night.
Monticello, Minn. native Joel Przybilla signed an NBA contract with Portland on Monday and was expected to make his first appearance of the season tomorrow night against his homestate Timberwolves in Portland. Instead, Przybilla was thrown into action last night for the Blazers, filling in for the injured Kurt Thomas. The "Vanilla Gorilla" scored four points and grabbed six rebounds in 19 minutes of action last night in a Portland loss to Miami. It was the first game action for Przybilla since last March when his season ended for Charlotte with a knee injury.
