Timberwolves vs Suns prediction

The Timberwolves and the free points is always worth a look because of how good they've been this season. However, the Timberwolves are still without Towns and Edwards has been playing dinged up a bit. The Suns are coming off offensive explosions against the Cavs and Pelicans, and they're expected to have Allen back for this game. The Suns are also fighting to stay out of the play-in tournament. The Suns have also won 8 of the last 9 games against the Timberwolves. The line is somewhat reasonable. Give me the Suns and the small number at home.
