Phoenix Suns  Team News 

The team, led by the great Monty Williams, entered this season very strong and they are currently 5-1 and are first on the West, and are on a 4-game winning streak. The Suns, like last year, play quickly and fluidly in the attack. In the last three games, they scored 124 points twice, while they swept the Warriors with their weapons and scored 134 points.

The Suns did not change much this year, but they brought reinforcements that will bring width to this roster. Josh Okogie, Damion Lee, and Jock Lanadle just arrived from Minnesota. The former Partizan center is playing great at the season opener, averaging 15 points for the Suns.

However, the main option for the Suns is the trio of Paul-Booker-Ayton, who will lead the team from Arizona to the top of the Western Conference this season. The Suns have a lot of width in both directions. The defense is held by Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson.

The Suns play attacking basketball, with many three-point shots, in the previous 2 matches they shot three-pointers, over 40 times.

Minnesota Timberwolves Team News 

After a long time, the Wolves made the playoffs last year, but they had no chance against Memphis. This is why they embarked on an interesting project this season. Namely, one of the most colorful defenders in the league, Rudy Gobert, arrived, who was paired together in the top five with another center, KAT. In this game setup, Towns is given much more offensive freedom, and he plays the PF position.

However, the main player and engine in both directions in the Timberwolves game is the young Anthony Edwards, who had games with over 40 points this season. Minnesota has done a  rebuild, and they are ready to make an even bigger leap and attack the very top of the West.

Last season they played total offensive basketball, scoring almost 120 points on average, but this season they added Gobert with great defensive potential. The Wolves are currently 4-3 and in 6th place on the West.

Against the Suns, the Wolves have something to look for, and in this match we expect a top offensive performance from both sides.

Phoenix Suns vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Prediction 

This match is a duel between two top attacking teams, and we expect a game with a lot of points and a lot of play in transition, with early shots for three points. Both teams have great offensive potential, and we expect them to easily “over” the given point limit.

The Suns will play without Ayton in this match, which is a big handicap for the team from Arizona. Besides Ayton, there will be no Wainright or Craig. Anderson and McLaughlin will be gone for the Wolves.
