Minnesota Timberwolves Team News

Until the very end, it was uncertain in the West, and the Timberwolves lost in the last game of the regular season and fell to third position, which earned them a duel with the Suns in the first round of the playoffs. It was the Suns who inflicted a defeat on them, and quite convincingly in the last game, and exposed all the shortcomings of the Wolves.

The Timberwolves are the league’s best defense, allowing just 106 points on average. In addition to Gobert, who is one of the best defensive players in the league, the Wolves are an athletically powerful team that can take on everything on defense. However, they have many attacking problems, especially when Anthony Edwards is not in good rhythm. Ant-Man is a very young player and his biggest problem is continuity, because in one game he plays at the All-Star level, and the next he shoots below 20% from the field. After the injury, KAT returned to the team, which is still catching the right attacking rhythm, and the result of this series will largely depend on his mood. KAT can stretch the opponent’s defense and we believe that in this matchup he will play a lot more in the center position, to draw Nurkic out as much as possible and punish him with penetrations and shots from distance.

In the last match between these two teams, Gobert was the most effective for the Timberwolves, scoring 21 points, while Edwards and KAT failed. Edwards scored 13 points, while Towns added 10 points.

Phoenix Suns Team News                            

The Suns improved their form at the very end of the season and showed that they will be a real threat to all teams in the West this season in the playoffs. By winning against the Timberwolves in the last game of the regular season, they avoided play-in and booked a duel with the Wolves in the playoffs. This is an ideal matchup for the Suns because they are a real antidote to the Timberwolves team. They met three times this season and the Suns won in all three matches.

They have great individual offensive quality, and with their creations in the 1 on 1 game, they get a large number of easy points, especially thanks to the trio of Durant, Booker, and Beal. It is very difficult to defend the Suns when all three start to score. In addition, they started to get a lot from Jusuf Nurkić who, in addition to dominating the rebounds, also started to play well with his teammates. In the last month, Nurkic has more of a role to play with his teammates than to look towards the basket. Grayson Allen signed a new contract with the Suns, who, in addition to the defense, also contributed to the attack with an excellent shot from a distance. It is Allen who is one of the key factors in the Suns’ game, which solves the problem of playmakers and points coming from the bench.

In the last match against Wolves, Beal dominated with 36 points, while Booker added 23 points. In the playoffs, much more offensive production is expected from Kevin Durant, who is certainly the first offensive option of the Phoenix team.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Phoenix Suns Prediction

Minnesota is the favorite in this match primarily because of the home field, but the question arises whether they have enough experience and quality to match the dangerous Suns. This season, the Suns have shown that they can beat the Timberwolves by fewer points, but also that they can offensively find the “flaws” of the league’s best defense. That’s why we decided to look for the winner in the team from Arizona.
