SALT LAKE CITY -- Running isn't just an offensive cornerstone for the Phoenix Suns. It is also a matter of survival.

The Suns often resort to small ball tactics to neutralize advantages taller teams have around the basket. It's one reason why Phoenix went small early and often against the Utah Jazz in the NBA preseason finale for both teams.

"We got to play scrappy," Suns guard Eric Bledsoe said. "We're so small, we got to play scrappy and get out on the break. Too many teams are going to beat our numbers in the post. We just got to play scrappy."

ST. LOUIS -- Zach LaVine tried not to think about guarding Derrick Rose.

After starring late in the Minnesota Timberwolves' rally from a 13-point deficit, the 19-year-old rookie didn't try hiding his admiration.

"That dude's good," LaVine said after Minnesota closed the preseason with a 113-112 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. "It's crazy, but in the game you can't really be worried about it. That dude's good."
