A Western Conference match up between two of the bottom feeders takes place on Monday in Minneapolis.
The Suns travel to chilly Minnesota to take on the Timberwolves.
This is the second match up between the two teams. The Timberwolves won the first match up in Arizona 98-85.
The Suns are still in rebuild mood but have a lot of good young players on their team. They have been scoring a lot of points, but don’t seem to play a lot of defense and still lose a lot of games.
They are 3-7 in the last 10 games but their wins are over the Knicks, Lakers and the Hawks. So any given night they can beat any team, they just have to put it all together to win.
In the first match up against the Wolves they only got 21 points from the bench which led them to their loss. Eric Bledsoe had 23 points in the loss.
On the offensive end they score 106.3 points per game and shoot 44 percent from the field. They have struggled from behind the arc this year only shooting 34 percent.
On the defensive end they give up 113 points per game and opposing teams shoot 46.1 percent from the field.
The Suns have not played well on the road this season only going 4-11
The Timberwolves have had an odd week the last week.
They came down from over 20 points against the Bulls early in the week. On Saturday they were up 9 with a minute left against the Rockets and lost.
All the momentum they had gained from the Win over the Bulls, they lost in the collapse against the Rockets.
One of the brightest spots the Wolves have seen in the last week games is their defense has really improved. They held the Bulls to 94 points and played very good defense against James Harden and the Rockets until the last few minutes.
In the first match up between the two teams Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony Towns led the team to victory.
If the Timberwolves want to win they need to have Zach LaVine to continue to play well. He has really picked up his shooting of late and I expect to see much of the same against the Suns.
The Timberwolves at home this season have a record of 3-10.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
I think the Timberwolves will come out early and take control of this game. Their will not be much defense played and will be a high scoring affair. I think the Suns will keep it close for most of the game but the Wolves will pull away at the end.
