Mirza Teletovic gives Phoenix about 20 minutes and 11 points a night off the bench, giving them solid minutes at the four.
Plus now he’s hit a couple of game-winners this season.
This latest one was a fading three as the clock wound down to lift Phoenix past Minnesota. Teletovic was one of the primary options on the play; he ‘d come off a couple of screens along the baseline to cut up along the arc. With 4.6 seconds on the clock when the ball was inbounded, there was time for very little play development, and it ended up being Teletovic with a contested three over Karl-Anthony Towns.
It worked. Phoenix got the 107-104 win.
