This is a short line to take with Minnesota who has an 11-18 straight up road record and Phoenix has a 19-10 straight up mark on their home court. In their most recent road games by the Timberwolves we have seen losses at Portland, a win at Utah and defeats at New Orleans, Oklahoma City and Atlanta. The Phoenix Suns are an exciting team who plays with plenty of energy that is generated by their home crowd. Minnesota is not a very efficient team. On the offensive side of the ball they make 43.7% of their shots and 34.5% from the three point line. They rank 24th out of 30 NBA teams in field goal shooting and 25th in the league from the three point line. On defense the Timberwolves allow opponents 46.7% shooting ranking 28th and third worst in the NBA. They do have some injury concerns has their man in the middle Nikola Pekovic is battling a bum ankle and he has missed many games this season with injuries. Their shooting guard Kevin Martin a threat from the outside will miss the game as he broke his thumb some three weeks ago and there is no return date in the lineup. Unlike Minnesota the Suns are an efficient team. They are fifth best in the NBA in scoring at 105 a game and eighth best in shooting as they make 45.8% from the floor. Phoenix is the best perimeter defensive club in the NBA as they hold their opponents to just 32.8% from the three point line.
With our NBA Pro Basketball pick for Tuesday we will play on the Phoenix Suns -3 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the online sports books.
