A slumping Andrew Wiggins and the tendency to give up big runs have plagued the Minnesota Timberwolves recently.Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns are coming off their best defensive showing of the season and would love to keep Wiggins slumping.The struggling Western Conference foes meet for the first time Friday night when Minnesota visits Phoenix.Minnesota (4-10) is on a three-game losing streak since a blowout home win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Nov. 17. During those games, the Wolves have averaged 86.6 points in losses to the Memphis Grizzlies, Boston Celtics and New Orleans Pelicans.Wiggins has made nine of his last 48 field goals in those games dropping his field goal percentage from 49.1 to 43.5. He also has gone 0 of 11 from 3-point range in the last three games and going back to the fourth quarter of Minnesotas last win, Wiggins is 0-of-13 from long range.You know, it happens, Wiggins told reporters. I went to the gym yesterday and put up some shots and my shot felt good. The good thing about it, my shot felt good today and I just missed.Wiggins was 2 of 19 Wednesday and Karl-Anthony Towns was held to a season-low nine points during Wednesdays 117-96 loss at New Orleans. It also continued a trend of allowing a big run at a key moment.In Memphis, the Wolves gave up 14 straight points when they were deadlocked at 48 in the third quarter. Against the Celtics on Monday, Minnesota blew a 15-point lead by allowing 19 straight points bridging the third and fourth. In New Orleans, the Wolves gave up a 26-4 run after being tied at 57 and were never in the game the rest of the way.We have to play tougher, Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau said. Same thing -- foul trouble, eight-point lead, we dont close out the second quarter well and it snowballed in the third quarter. We have to keep looking. We are not playing any defense.Same thing, different day, Towns said. We have to fix it.The same thing, different day applies especially to third quarters.Minnesota gave up a 36-18 third quarter Wednesday and has been outscored by a league-worst 8.3 points in the third.The Suns (5-11) traveled 6,182 miles on a six-game road trip and won twice. They ended the trek by holding the Orlando Magic to 36 percent shooting in a 92-87 win on Wednesday.Im very pleased with how unselfish they were, Suns coach Earl Watson said. They played selfless, and it showed on the defensive end. People always think unselfishness is from offense and Oh, he passed the extra pass. Its defensively because defense, you cannot rest, you cannot hold back your energy. You have to give your all.It marked the fourth time since the start of last season Phoenix held a team under 90 points.This was our best game of the season, Suns guard Eric Bledsoe said. I thought we were locked in defensively and we played well as team.Bledsoe was part of a three-guard starting lineup that included Devin Booker and Brandon Knight. The Suns started their trio of former Kentucky guards for the second straight game and they combined for 39 points.Alex Len collected 17 points and 12 rebounds and recorded three doubles-doubles in four games in place of Tyson Chandler at center. Chandler has missed four straight games and eight of the last nine following the death of his mother.While Chandler is expected to return Friday, T.J. Warren will not be available. Warren has not played since exiting Fridays win at Indianapolis with an illness and the Suns announced he will be out for a few weeks with a minor head injury.The teams have split the season series in the last two years although the Suns have won 18 of the last 26 meetings. In the last meeting on March 28, Wiggins and Towns combined for 59 points and Minnesota blew a 20-point lead but held on for a 121-116 home win.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Its the final major of the year for caddies as well as players. The heat is the story in Round 1. It became so hot that the PGA of America ended up having to syringe some greens with water to keep them alive. Our guest caddie today is a smart aleck, which is one of the reasons I love the guy.Hes also honest, which is why youll love him. Enjoy!Collins: What was the toughest part of Round 1? Caddie: Keeping my mans palms dry (said a bit tongue in cheek because everyone in the caddie area was sweating profusely). Collins: On the PGA Tour heat scale, where does this rank? Caddie: Ive never been to Malaysia so I cant compare there but ... its (the PGA Championship) No. 1. The only other thing I can compare it to is Congressional (in 2012). Remember that year when we got that big giant storm, when Coop (caddie Don Cooper) went down (with heat stroke)? Its just as hot as that.Collins: What hole was the hardest to caddie? Caddie: Hmmm. There werent really any hard holes to caddie. No, wait. Maybe 9. Yeah, probably 9. Collins: What made it difficult? Caddie: Right pin on a right tee; I work for a guy who hits a draw. That was the hardest hole for me.Collins: There was zero wind today. Does that change how you caddie or approach the round? Caddie: No, I dont think so. Its still a major. Same mindset. Collins: The talk around the clubhouse was about this course giving up a 62 or 63 with no wind. Caddie: (Laughing like a madman) Thats pretty funny. Collins: Ill take that as a no chance.Collins: Whats the one thing on this golf course you must avoid at all costs? Caddie: The port-a-potties! Theyre way too hot. Collins: For golf shots? Caddie: The one thing you must avoid at all costs? I dont know if there is one, to tell you the truth. Miss on the right side, if youre out of position. Miss on the right side. Collins: So dont short-side yourself. Caddie: (Laughs) Yeah, easier said than done.Collins: Which was the toughest green on the coourse? Caddie: Theyre all hard to read for some reason.dddddddddddd They are hard to read. Collins: Why? Caddie: I think theres just a lot of subtleties. A lot of putts dont look like they (break) a lot, but youre trying to find something. Make sense? Youre trying to find something. Collins: Ive heard the rule of thumb is, since the clubhouse sits on top of the hill, everything breaks away from the clubhouse. That hold true? Caddie: For the most part, yes. Except, and I learned the hard way, except on the middle right pin on 15 if youre dead below it or dead behind it. Then its schneaky (yes, he pronounced it like that). It almost pulls back into the hill a little bit. Whooda known? (Said like a cartoon character.)Collins: Now that youve seen the golf course in major condition, what should people know about it? Caddie: That its long. Its long. (He fades off saying it again.) Maybe four of the toughest par-3s that we see all year long. Yeah, theres no letup on these par-3s. Collins: What makes them so tough? Caddie: I think distance and the size of the greens. Theres no letup. Its like every (par-3) is between 200 and 230 (yards). ... And theyre small greens! F---, (No.) 9 is tiny! (And) 16 is tiny! (And) 4s got a bunch of H2O in front of it! Theyre kinda spooky. (said with a high-pitched kids voice)Collins: Whats it like for the caddie to finish with two par-5s? Caddie: (Sarcastically) Not good for this one today! (He laughs hysterically. OK, so did I.) It means theres always a light at the end of the tunnel when theres two par-5s at the end. Its obviously different, but its pretty cool. Even though 17 isnt really hittable (in two). Anything can happen on 18, though, cant it? You could be 3 (shots) back and still get it done on 18, I would think. Or youre gonna have a mathematical chance at it. Its pretty cool. I enjoy it.
