Tonight, the Minnesota Timberwolves visit the Phoenix Suns, with both teams looking to extend their winning streak. The Suns are expecting to welcome back superstar Kevin Durant tonight after he was out for several weeks with an ankle injury. Durant has only suited up three times for Phoenix since being traded over from Brooklyn, and he’ll definitely provide a huge boost down the stretch and into the playoffs if healthy. Minnesota is on a four-game winning streak, and multiple-time All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns is back in the mix as they fight for a playoff spot in the final weeks here. This is the final meeting between these two Western Conference foes, with the Suns up 2-1 in the season series thus far.
Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Phoenix Suns Match Details
Fixture: Minnesota Timberwolves @ Phoenix Suns
Date & Time: Wednesday, March 29, 10:00 p.m. EDT
Venue: Footprint Center, Phoenix, Arizona
Player Prop #1: Anthony Edwards Over 30.5 Points, Rebounds, and Assists (-115)
Anthony Edwards, the former #1 overall pick, is one of the bright young stars in our league, and tonight he’ll match up with a tough Suns team. Edwards has been quiet his last few games, but looking at his overall offensive production, he’s averaged 32.6 combined points, rebounds, and assists over his last ten games. The former Georgia Bulldog went for 31 points, six rebounds, and three assists versus Phoenix back in January, and he should be the center of the offense tonight.
Player Prop #2: Kevin Durant Over 1.5 Three-Pointers Made (-130)
Kevin Durant is expected back tonight, and although he might be eased back, we’ve seen him excel in this Suns offense, even though it’s a small sample size. Durant has knocked down at least two threes in his three games as a Sun, and he’s shot 7-for-13 from deep all in all with Phoenix. With Chris Paul and Devin Booker setting up Durant, expect the former MVP to convert at least two triples here in his return.
Player Prop #3: Karl-Anthony Towns Over 25.5 Points and Rebounds (-120)
Karl-Anthony Towns suffered an injury in late November that sidelined him for over three months, but he’s back and helping the Wolves win games now. Towns has been rusty in the two games he’s played since returning, but after shooting 5-for-16 against Golden State earlier this week, it’s unlikely that he’ll be as inefficient tonight against a Suns team that doesn’t have a ton of quality bigs. This line is pretty low, considering that Towns could score 26 points without even needing the rebounds here, so expect him to definitely reach the combined points and rebounds.
