Thursday, February 18th finds the Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns playing in their second meeting this season. The initial match was won by the Suns 118-99 on February 28th.
The Suns hold the all-time record between the clubs with 73 wins in 115 meetings. Last season, the clubs played twice with Phoenix winning both contests.
While the Timberwolves have struggled there are brief glimpses of potential and if the trade rumors are to be taken seriously Gersson Rosas is hunting to add a talent that will push the Wolves up the ladder.
While that may seem like an odd choice given the Wolves would keep their draft pick if they finished in the bottom three the more pressing need is keeping Karl-Anthony Towns happy.
For that to happen the Wolves need to make the play-in tournament so the young team and KAT specifically get a shot at playoff basketball.
One name that keeps surfacing is the Atlanta Hawks John Collins who Towns is said to be high on adding and Collins also noted it would be great to play with KAT. That doesn’t sound like a player (Collins) who expects to be remaining in Atlanta.
In the interim, the Wolves have finally broken the double-digit win column with impressive victories over the Pelicans and Blazers. Minnesota came close to winning the first of two consecutive games against Portland coming up just short.
The most recent game was a 121-137 loss to the Lakers. Ricky Rubio delivered a double-double of 19 points and 12 assists while Towns and rookie Anthony Edwards each scored 29 points. Jaylen Nowell (13) was the only other double-figure scorer.
Jarrett Culver (toe) and Jordan McLaughlin (safety protocols) are both day to day while D’Angelo Russell remains out healing from surgery to his leg.
The Suns got back in the win column with a victory versus the Grizzlies after their five-game win streak came to an end versus the Pacers.
Even with the loss to Indy, the Suns remain hot having won 18 of their last 22 matches..
Devin Booker led the Suns with 27 points, four rebounds, and five assists while Chris Paul continues to provide solid leadership contributing 18 points, three rebounds, seven assists, and four steals.
Deandre Ayton registered 15 points and nine rebounds, however at some point you have to wonder if Monty Williams will switch to using Dario Saric more since the Suns play better with Saric on the court both offensively and defensively.
Jae Crowder (14) and Cameron Payne (13) were the other double-figure scorers.
Cameron Johnson (safety protocols) and Abdel Nader (knee) are both day-to-day.

Minnesota is playing much better and this match offers a litmus test for both club as the Suns should win these types of games while the Wolves can use this as a measuring stick for how close they are to climbing out of the basement.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Wolves +10.5
Altough the Lakers beat the Wolves by 16 points overall they’ve been playing much better. I think Phoenix wins but I’m not as confident they cover the 10.5 spread.
