Detroit might be inching back to respectability, emphasis on might be and inching.
New Orleans seems pretty dead in the water right now. Any thoughts of them being a sneaky contender seem way off.
Detroit needs to bag wins like these to get back into the race in a top-heavy Eastern Conference.
Inconsistency has stalled a very promising and surprising season for the Suns. They were not on anyone’s radar to make the playoffs in the Western Conference. However, since November 7th they have not put together back to back wins.
In order to stay in contention, they need to find consistency in closing out games. A big area they have been losing out quite consistently has been at rebounding.
Dario Saric and Deandre Ayton are great at stretching the floor offensively. However, they have consistently allowed opponents second-chance points and losing the battle at the boards.
That being said Devon Booker play on both sides of the floor has been outstanding this season. It should continue against the Timberwolves. Booker scorched the Timberwolves with 35 points in their last meeting. Their previous two games against the Timberwolves have resulted in hard-fought wins home and away.
If the Suns’ frontcourt shows up at home, they have a good chance of making it 3 wins out of 3 against the Timberwolves.
The Timberwolves are on a 4 game losing streak. They like the Suns have been inconsistent this season. This trend is likely to continue in contention for the 7th and 8th playoff seed in the Western Conference.
The positives for the Timberwolves have been the mini resurgence of Andrew Wiggins. He is even playing some defense this season. This can be attributed to the offensive game plan that head coach Ryan Saunders has implemented this season.
Karl Anthony Towns should find himself having a big game against the Suns’ young frontcourt. However, the biggest flaw for the Timberwolves in an otherwise surprisingly great start to the season has been their inability to make defensive stops.
They are in the bottom 5, averaging 115.9 points to opponents. The other glaring weakness for the Timberwolves is that even with star center Towns in their lineup they are allowing 47.4 rebounds to opponents which are also in the bottom 5.
They also allow 11.1 offensive rebounds per game. They will be going against a Suns team who are coming back from a long road trip, in need of a boost for their frontcourt.
