Wolves hoping to take advantage of jet-lagged Suns

Two potential-laden young players hope to put recent issues with the referees behind them with the Phoenix Suns take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on the front end of a home-and-home sequence Sunday night in Minneapolis.

Both teams will take the court shackled in losing streaks, and both believe the NBA refs are partly to blame.

The Timberwolves are coming off a 116-113 home loss Friday night to San Antonio, their second straight loss, in a game in which Karl-Anthony Towns fouled out for the sixth time this season. He bit his tongue and refused to comment on the officiating after the game, and his coach, Ryan Saunders, hoped to use the disqualification as a teaching point.
