Why the Timberwolves can cover 

Center Karl-Anthony Towns recently returned to the floor and gives Minnesota a massive boost. Towns has a reliable outside jumper with a knack for piling up rebounds. The Kentucky product owns good court vision and is a solid passer for his size. On March 22 against the Atlanta Hawks, he finished with 22 points, four rebounds, and went 2-of-3 from beyond the arc.

Guard Mike Conley is a smart and heady facilitator in the backcourt. Conley has the awareness to initiate the offense due to his court vision and ball handles. The Ohio State product averages 11.5 points and 6.9 assists per game. In the March 20 contest against the New York Knicks, Conley had 24 points and 11 assists. 

Why the Suns can cover

Guard Devin Booker is a fantastic three-level bucket-getter. Booker has outstanding footwork and a knack for creating space. The three-time All-Star thrives in the mid-range area and can score a boatload of points. Booker logs 28.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game. On March 25 against the Philadelphia 76ers, he dropped 29 points and five boards.

Center Deandre Ayton is a fluid and agile force who has strong hands in the lane with a soft touch around the rim. The Arizona product is eighth in the league in rebounds (10.1) with 18.2 points per game. On March 13 versus the Golden State Warriors, he racked up 27 points and 12 boards.
