Wolves look to double up on Suns in quick rematch

Less than 48 hours after Derrick Rose's 18-foot jumper with 0.9 seconds gave the Minnesota Timberwolves a victory over the Phoenix Suns, the teams do it all over again Tuesday night in the Valley of the Sun.

The Timberwolves' 116-114 win will be fresh in the minds of the Suns, who were up by four with under three minutes left. Minnesota's defense tightened as the Suns went 0 of 4 from the field and Devin Booker committed two turnovers to set the stage for Rose's heroics.

"It was all up to my teammates," Rose told reporters afterward. "And my coaches, too, for giving me that confidence, putting the ball in my hands, and just believing in me. That's what it's all about."
