Phoenix Suns vs Minnesota Timberwolves

Phoenix Suns's Latest Performance :
The Suns are on a three-game losing streak as they had no answer for Kemba Walker in their last game. He attacked the Suns’ guard with ease. As the season progresses it seems to me that the Suns are heading towards another rebuilding season although they have stated during the season that they are going to turn the team around by acquiring Ariza and Anderson that didn’t seem to work out. The Suns are 4-19 on the road this season and they’ve won just two of their last 12 games. Ever since Booker returned from his injury he doesn’t seem like himself his poor shots selections really hurts the team. It is going to be a tough challenge for their rookie Ayton since he will be going up against Towns in this game so he will have to bring his A-game on the road. The Suns have young pieces on the team but they can’t seem to get it going yet not this season.
Minnesota Timberwolves 's Latest Performance :
The Wolves will be looking to bounce back against the Suns after losing two games in a row. Towns only played 21 mins because of foul trouble but he was still able to score 23 points. They also had six players reach double figures, including all five starters. Derrick Rose had 23 points off the bench but missed the game-tying three as time expired. Jeff Teague chipped in with 15 points and six assists. Gibson had a double-double with 14 points and 11 boards. Minnesota is 5-5 in their last 10 games, but have won three of their last four at home, where they are 15-7 this season. Playing against the Suns, Towns will be able to redeem himself his he is will be going up against Ayton whose defense isn’t his strong suit. Look for him to be the focal point of the offense in this game.

Against The Spread Selection: Minnesota Timberwolves
My reason for the pick :
The Wolves will end their skid against the Suns as they will take them down at home. Towns will get the better of Ayton in this game. The Suns will drop to 4-20 on the road. It is tough to stop the Wolves when Towns gets going offensively. Booker will have a decent game but he won’t be able to pull out this win for the Suns because he knows that he can’t do it alone and he needs Warren to step it up since he has been inconsistent in the last few games. Go with Minnesota in this game.
