MINNEAPOLIS - The Phoenix Suns did what theyve done all season — come from out of nowhere to win a game it appeared they had lost. Custom Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys . After Goran Dragic and the Suns burned the Minnesota Timberwolves with a stunning comeback, Kevin Love torched some of his teammates. Dragic had 26 points, nine assists and six rebounds, and Gerald Greens baseline jumper with 3.9 seconds completed a rally from six points down with less than two minutes to play in a 104-103 victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday night. The Suns (21-13) closed the game on a 7-0 run for maybe their most improbable win in a season full of them. Channing Frye scored 22 points and hit five 3-pointers and Green finished with 14 points for Phoenix, which was playing the second game of a back-to-back and is still missing starting guard Eric Bledsoe. "We just have confidence in each other and I think we just want to continue to play our way of basketball," Frye said. The Timberwolves have no such thing right now. Kevin Martin scored 20 points, but his runner at the buzzer clanked off the rim. Nikola Pekovic and Love combined to shoot 10 for 36 and the Timberwolves failed to get over .500 on their seventh straight try. They are 0-10 in games decided by four points or less this season, but the thing that troubled Love most was seeing J.J. Barea and Dante Cunningham sulking at the end of the bench in the final quarter. "We all need to be in this together," Love said. "That kind of (ticks) me off. Were supposed to be a team." Love didnt call out either veteran by name, but the body language for Barea and Cunningham in the fourth made them easily identifiable. "If and when I did that last year when maybe I didnt sit out for the game for all 48 minutes and so on and so forth, they would have killed me," Love said, referring to him missing many games last year with a broken hand. "They wouldve aired me out. Thats tough. Its two guys that we expect more from them. I think they expect more from themselves." The Wolves led by nine with 4:16 to play and were up 103-97 with 1:36 to go. But as is usual in this unlikely season in Phoenix, the Suns never gave in. P.J. Tucker hit two free throws, Dragic scored off a steal, Markieff Morris hit another freebie and Green, the former Timberwolves flop, hit a jumper with the shot clock winding down to seal it. The Wolves committed three turnovers in the final minute, the last on an errant pass from Ricky Rubio that gave the Suns the ball with 16 seconds to go. "I think we play better with our backs to the wall, but I dont think nobody in this locker room wants to ever be in that situation," Green said. "We want to finish out games better." Love had 15 points on 4-for-20 shooting with 12 rebounds and Pekovic had 17 points on 6-for-16 shooting with 12 boards. Miles Plumlee had 11 points and nine boards before fouling out and Marcus Morris had 10 points and five boards for the Suns, who just keep surprising people. Martin had his 20 points early in the third quarter and Corey Brewers activity on defence and ability to get out in transition keyed a 30-19 period for the Wolves, who were rattled in the first 24 minutes by the Suns rugged defence and the way the game was being called. Love and coach Rick Adelman picked each picked up technical fouls for arguing with the officials, and the Timberwolves star missed 10 of his 12 shots in the first half. Pekovic didnt fare much better, going 1 for 8 from the field and having all kinds of difficulty with Plumlees athleticism in the paint. The Suns had plenty to complain about themselves. But they never got rattled. And it paid off. "They kept their composure," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. "They didnt get panicked. They made some stops. Thats the key. We really buckled down at the end. They were kind of scrambling there." NOTES: Chase Budinger made his season debut for the Wolves after missing the first 34 games with an injured left knee. He got a big ovation when he entered in the first quarter and finished with six points in 11 minutes. ... The Suns signed veteran G Leandro Barbosa to a 10-day contract on Wednesday. He didnt take long to assimilate, shooting three times in his first minute on the floor. He finished with three points in 13 minutes Barry Bonds Jersey . Playing in his fourth major league game, Polanco broke a tie in the 13th inning with his first homer, helping Pittsburgh to an 8-6 victory over the Miami Marlins after the Pirates had a ninth-inning meltdown. Gerrit Cole Jersey . Starters, when they struggle, have to live with it for five days. For Sergio Santos and Steve Delabar, two of the three men who authored one of the ugliest pitched innings in Blue Jays franchise history on Thursday night, the bounce-back chance came right away. http://www.pittsburghpiratesprostore.us/Sean-Rodriguez-pirates-jersey/ . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said.TORONTO - Now that Dustin McGowan has proven to himself he can still pitch in the major leagues, hes setting bigger goals for 2014. "I think Im going to try to start next year," said McGowan. "Im going to try it just to see how it feels. Theres no harm in trying. "We talked about it earlier in the year, just mentioned it back and forth," he continued. "I told them if I did it, it would definitely be next year and its kind of the last thing we left off with so Im sure itll be revisited." McGowan is back with the Blue Jays after a month-long stint on the disabled list with a strained left oblique. He was injured during a July 29 appearance against the Oakland Athletics. McGowan pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings of relief that night, his longest outing of the season. The strain happened on a pitch to Yoenis Cespedes in the sixth. McGowan would face five more batters that night, including three after sitting through his teammates turn on offence in the seventh. McGowan knew there was a problem when he woke up the next morning but, taken in the context of his injury-plagued career, he took solace in a small detail. "Its the first time Ive ever been on the DL and its not an arm injury," he said. McGowan threw one scoreless inning in a rehab appearance for Dunedin on Friday. Hes looking to finish strong and then amp up in the offseason. "Ill train in that direction," said McGowan. "Its never going to hurt to train for that and if it doesnt work out, at least its easier to go from being a starter to a reliever than the opposite. So Id rather train that way." "Minister" Delabar activated from DL How did Steve Delabar spend last weekend? He officiated the marriage of his brrother, Daniel, to his new sister-in-law, Mallory. Willie Stargell Jersey. "It was the coolest thing Ive ever done," said Delabar. Apparently the process of becoming a minister, the temporary kind, isnt an arduous task. "You go online. You dont really fill out anything. You just pay money and its like, youre in." Delabar introduced the two and so they asked him to officiate the wedding. He got to know Mallory while pitching for Seattles Triple-A affiliate in nearby Tacoma. Mallory was an employee of the Rainiers. When Delabar got called up to the Mariners, Mallory and some friends attended his first game. So did Daniel and a group of his buddies. Numbers were exchanged for the first time and the rest is history. Delabar is back from a four-week stint on the disabled list due to inflammation in his pitching shoulder. He first felt pain, which he describes as out of the ordinary, following his Canada Day appearance against the Tigers. "The strength was there," said Delabar. "Even whenever I was still pitching on it, I could pitch. It was just, not tired, but there was that inflammation there that just wouldnt go away and I needed just a few more days than I was getting. So that was the idea, shut me down for a little bit and then get me going again." Delabar, who swears by the heavy ball-throwing program created by Blue Jays consultant Jamie Evans, intends to make minor changes to his spring training approach to avoid missing time next season with a similar injury. "Every little thing that you do and every little bump that you hit, you hope to avoid that bump next time," said Delabar. "Im trying to figure out the plan to be able to avoid anything that might come up next time."
