Money line

The Suns are playing great basketball, although they had to rally from a deficit to beat the Sacramento Kings in overtime Sunday. They have the league’s best road record at 28-6.

However, the Wolves are 24-12 at home and have won six straight there.

The Suns have won both meetings against Minnesota this season, including a 99-96 win on the road.

Both teams are playing very well but the Wolves have the more urgent situation, trying to get into the top six of the West, while the Suns have all but wrapped up the No. 1 seed, I LEAN TIMBERWOLVES (+100).
