MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Shaquille O’Neal had 18 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks to help the balanced Phoenix Suns to a 110-102 victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday night, snapping their three-game losing streak in Minnesota.

Steve Nash added 20 points and six assists in 27 minutes for the Suns, who were playing the second game of a back-to-back but still had enough in the tank to down the woeful Wolves.

Al Jefferson continued to dominate Phoenix with 28 points and 17 rebounds, including a franchise-record 12 on the offensive end. He averaged 30.5 points and 15.3 rebounds in four games against Phoenix last season.

Minnesota outrebounded Phoenix 49-36, but missed 11 free throws in the game.
