A breakout game for rookie Shabazz Muhammad highlights a big road win for the Wolves in Phoenix. A somewhat unusual win for the Wolves as they come from behind in the 4th quarter and roll past the Suns 110-101 in Phoenix tonight. Down six heading into the final period, and down 8 with less then 8 minutes left, the Wolves roared back once Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love re-entered the game following a time out. Rubio fostered ball movement on offense and activity on defense, while Love was merely Love, doing everything from rebounding to passing to hitting the dagger three late in the game to give the Wolves a 10 point lead. But the night belonged to Shabazz Muhammad, who had by far his best game as a pro. He finished with 20 points on 8-13 shooting (including 10 points in the 4th quarter), as well as six rebounds, none bigger then his offensive board and dish to Corey Brewer to put the Wolves up five with 1:38 left in the game and forcing Phoenix into a timeout.
