The Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Footprint Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 116.1 points on 49.2 percent shooting and allowing 116.3 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Anthony Edwards is averaging 24.7 points and 5.9 rebounds, while Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 20.8 points and 5.2 assists. Rudy Gobert is the third double-digit scorer and Jaden McDaniels is grabbing 4 rebounds. The Minnesota Timberwolves are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 76.1 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Timberwolves are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.6 rebounds per game.

The Phoenix Suns are averaging 113.7 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 112 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 28.2 points and 5.4 assists, while Kevin Durant is averaging 26.7 points and 7.3 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Chris Paul is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 37.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79.3 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game.

The Timberwolves are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games. The Suns are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Timberwolves last 8 overall. The over is 5-1 in Suns last 6 overall. The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix and 7-18-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings.

The Phoenix Suns are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, and the return of Durant doesn't hurt. However, the Minnesota Timberwolves continue to find ways to hang around, they need to keep winning to stay out of the play-in tournament, and they lose as underdogs by an average of 1.2 points. The Timberwolves don't get blown out often. I'll take a stab with the motivated road underdogs.

Randy’s Pick Minnesota Timberwolves +6.5
