Up seven points with less three minutes remaining Wednesday night, the Wolves let another victory slip away in a disastrous 104-103 loss to the Phoenix Suns. It ran Minnesota’s record up to 0-10 in games decided by four points or less this season, including their last four losses. It also left an increasing cloud of frustration hovering over the Wolves (17-18), and even resulted in star Kevin Love calling out two of his teammates.”We can’t have two guys sitting at the end of the bench, who play good minutes, just sitting there and not getting up at timeouts,” Love said. “We all need to be in this together. That kind of pisses me off. We’re supposed to be a team.” Although Love did not use specific names in the interview, based on the fourth quarter scene on the bench all indications were that his frustrations were aimed at J.J. Barea and Dante Cunningham. Barea, who scored eight points in 13 minutes, clearly voiced he was unhappy when he was sent to the bench near the eight-minute mark in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Cunningham recorded three points and one rebound in a season-low 11 minutes. 1500 ESPN
