Who’s Playing

Minnesota @ Phoenix

Current Records: Minnesota 24-24; Phoenix 38-9

What to Know

The Minnesota Timberwolves might have tired legs after a game yesterday as they head on the road against the Phoenix Suns at 9 p.m. ET Jan. 28 at Footprint Center. Phoenix should still be riding high after a win, while the Timberwolves will be looking to right the ship.

Minnesota came up short against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday, falling 124-115. Despite the defeat, Minnesota got a solid performance out of center Karl-Anthony Towns, who dropped a double-double on 31 points and 12 rebounds along with six dimes.

Meanwhile, Phoenix picked up a 105-97 victory over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. Shooting guard Devin Booker took over for Phoenix, finishing with 43 points (a whopping 41% of their total) in addition to 12 boards.

The Timberwolves are expected to lose this next one by 9.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

Minnesota’s loss took them down to 24-24 while Phoenix’s victory pulled them up to 38-9. Booker will be someone to keep an eye on after he posted a double-double on 43 points and 12 rebounds on Wednesday. Let’s see if he can build on that strong performance or if Minnesota’s defense can bottle him up.
