Game: Minnesota Timberwolves at Phoenix Suns Mar 12 2012 10:05PM
Prediction: Minnesota Timberwolves
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: Minnesota's first game without Ricky Rubio was not a good one as it lost at home to New Orleans and that wasn't a great surprise as it was a big loss for sure. Expect the Timberwolves to rebound it their second game however as they are still playing exceptional this season as they are 21-21, very solid considering they won only 19 games all of last season. They are also 9-9 on the road, one of just five teams in the Western Conference and 11 teams in the entire league with a .500 or better road record. Phoenix is making a big push after it was written off a while ago. The Suns have won two straight games and are 7-2 over their last nine games. Only one of these games has been played on the road so they are taking care of business at home where they are now 12-9 and Phoenix trails Houston by only two games for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Suns have been underdogs most of the time though and they have been very average in the role of favorites. Rubio was having a great season no doubt but his loss isn't going to kill the Timberwolves. According to an ESPN report, Only 53 percent of the Timberwolves' made field goals have been assisted on, the 6th-lowest percentage in the NBA, and Rubio was turning the ball over on 22 percent of his possessions. His field goal percentage was pretty bad over his last few games and Luke Ridnour is a solid backup that will take over the spot until Juan Barea returns from his ankle injury. Phoenix has owned this series with nine straight win including a victory in the lone meeting this season as it won by nine points earlier this month at home. The line is actually lower this time around which is a bit of a surprise based on the Suns recent play. Minnesota is 10-2 ATS this season in road games when coming off a game at home and it is 4-1 ATS in its last five road games against teams with a winning home record. Look for the Timberwolves to break their skid against Phoenix with an outright win. 10* (511) Minnesota Timberwolves
