Individual Player Analysis

As Phoenix travels to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Suns’ leading scorer is Devin Booker. Through 69 games, Booker is averaging 25 points. On the season, he has surpassed his season average in 52.0% of his games. As Booker gets set to take on the Timberwolves, he could be in line for a big game as Minnesota is allowing their opponent’s top scorer to surpass their season average in 55.0% of their games. This figure places them 25th among NBA defenses. On the other side, Karl-Anthony Towns leads the Timberwolves in scoring, averaging 24 points across his 69 games. Throughout the season, Towns has outscored his season average in 51.0% of his outings. However, if he hopes to add to this total, Towns will need to do so against a Suns defense that has been tough on their opponent’s top scorers. So far, leading scores have surpassed their season average at a rate of just 27.59%. This figure is good for a rank of 0th in the league.

Joe’s Pick to Cover the Spread

Even though the Phoenix Suns come into this matchup, already having locked up the top seed in the West. The Minnesota Timberwolves enter this game hoping to work their way up the 6th seed and avoid having to compete in the play-in tournament. Even though the Wolves are coming off a loss, they have won 8 of their last 10 games. With a spread sitting 1.5 points in favor of the Suns, I like the Timberwolves to pull out the win and cover the spread.
