After two days in the desert without a game, the Wolves are back at it tonight in Phoenix fresh off Friday's stunning 99-96 last-second victory at Oklahoma City.
Will they be well rested and ready or too relaxed after some time in the sun against a Suns team that has won four games fewer than the Wolves have?
The Suns are playing better, having won gone 3-5 in their last eight games under interim coach Earl Watson.
"I hope we understand we're not good enough," said Wolves interim head coach Sam Mitchell, whose team took Saturday off and practice Sunday in Phoenix. "They got 17 wins, we've got 21. I shouldn't have to say anything more than that. They've beaten some good teams. If you're not ready to play, you're going to get beat. I don't care who you are. That's just the nature of the NBA"
