Hmm. Landale is an interesting matchup against Gobert. He can pull him outside.

I think we lose this game as we have NO counter defensively for their twin towers. The wolves are going to feast on the offensive glass with no Ayton.

The three most worrisome weapons for the Timberwolves as I see it are Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and Rudy Gobert.

We don't need to. It's not like Gobert can hurt you down low, and Towns doesn't want to.

If we lose it's because we have a bad shooting night.

Gobert should not be described as a weapon. I swear he is easily the most overrated player in the game, well maybe that is Ben Simmons, but he is right up at the top.

I wouldn't say both their names in the same breath.

When you see how wildly incompetent they are on defense and how badly they mesh on offense… you’ll change your tune.

They’re 4-3 with maybe the easiest schedule in the league so far.

Suns by 30.

Jordan McLaughlin and Kyle Anderson are QUESTIONABLE for the Timberwolves.

The comparison is quite a difference in production between Simmons & Gobert. Gobert gets the edge by far. You'll never see any baller pass up as many open looks as Simmons anywhere or any level..

We will get to see what the twin towers bring come tuesday and if we can handle them & get the win.

My crew are going super early to this one because of some cup giveaway. Some giveaways I can get behind... but a cup? This thing is going into my cabinet and will probably not be touched again until my family is trying to sort out my will, at which point it will go in the trash.

Moral of the story, I am going to pregame early, then arrive to the arena very early, with the idea that we will get our cups, then go to the FanDuel lounge for a couple hours before the game...

So, I am going to be completely tanked for this one. In the moment I will know the situation but I doubt I will remember anything after halftime.

... Go Suns.

We should crap on em though. IMO, the Wolves are a team with a bunch of talent but none of it fits together.

I think they're likely to be a play in team again.
