“How do you define the Phoenix Suns (42-29) recent four game winning streak? Was it a simple case of “doing what they were supposed to do?” Or a turning point in the season…?

NBC Sports: After long season with Suns, Goran Dragic may not play in World Cup for Slovenia

Goran Dragic has taken on a heavy load for the Phoenix Suns this season — playing 34.7 minutes a night he has had to become the focal point of the team’s offense due to injuries around him.

“This is what a lost season looks like. The Timberwolves were supposed to be a feisty team this year, one with an improving core of good young players that had a real shot at making the playoffs. Kevin Love was set to be the star, Ricky Rubio was going to breakout, Kevin Martin was going to rain threes, and Nikola Pekovic was going to bring ruckus. But the T-Wolves are 34-35 and seven games back of the eight seed, and Kevin Love is doing postgame interviews with a thousand-yard stare.”
