Devin Booker is averaging 24.9 points and 4.3 assists while Chris Paul is averaging 16.6 points and 4.7 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Mikal Bridges is dishing 2.2 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 82.8 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.3 rebounds per game.
The Minnesota Timberwolves need a win here to snap a seven game losing streak. The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 107.5 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 114.8 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 22 points and 3.5 assists while Malik Beasley is averaging 20.2 points and 2.5 assists.

The Suns are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 29-11 ATS in their last 40 games overall. The Timberwolves are 16-35-1 ATS in their last 52 home games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Suns last 6 overall. The under is 4-0 in Timberwolves last 4 Sunday games. The Suns are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Minnesota and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Phoenix Suns continue to be one of the more profitable teams since the NBA bubble, and they're winning their last five games b an average of 17.4 points while shooting 52.5 percent from the field. The Minnesota Timberwolves are piling up double digit loss after double digit loss and I'm sure playing on the end of a back to back doesn't help matters. It's hard to find confidence in the Timberwolves here. I'll take the Suns in a blowout victory.
