Phoenix Suns have hot hand in 120-111 win over Utah Jazz

< Previous Page

Minnesota arrives in Utah without rookie point guard Ricky Rubio, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last week.

"You can’t do anything about that," coach Rick Adelman said. "You have to go out and play with who you have and see what happens. … It was a blow at first, but I think guys realize what we have to do."

According to Adelman, the Timberwolves can survive the loss of Rubio if players like rookie Derrick Williams elevate their play.

"The key is, you need people who haven’t been playing to step up," Adelman said. "It’s like D-Will. He hasn’t been playing but we stepped up big-time the last two games. That’s what is going to get you through. That’s what is going to make the adjustment easier."
