The Minnesota Timberwolves are clinging to their playoff lives tonight when they visit one of the two teams they are chasing in the standings in the Phoenix Suns (7:30 PM, WJON).

Minnesota is 27-29 this season, 6.5 games behind the Suns for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Timberwolves saw their modest three-game winning streak snapped on Sunday night in a 108-97 loss at Portland.

Phoenix continues to be one of the biggest surprises in the NBA by exceeding modest expectations to post a 33-22 record on the season. The Suns suffered a 115-112 loss to Houston Sunday night.
