(Newser) – The Timberwolves couldn't keep Steve Nash from leading his team to a 115-95 victory last night. They tried to stop him from passing, and he scored; they tried to block his shot, and he dished out 13 assists. Against Nash and the Suns, the NBA's worst team never had a chance, reports the Arizona Republic. Elsewhere in the league:

  • New Orleans picked up its fourth straight win, a 112-84 blowout of Charlotte, courtesy of David West's 28 points and Peja Stojakovic's five three-pointers.
  • The Clippers dropped their 31st of the last 32 games played in Utah, as an energetic Jazz shot 43-83 for a 106-88 triumph.
