Like most Lithuanians, I started watching basketball from the age of six. I'm based out in London and played basketball at the University of Lincoln here in the UK. I had always had an interest in the NBA but things really took off in the summer of 2010. That year Linas Kleiza led Lithuania to 3rd place at the World Championships and signed with the Toronto Raptors to replace the departing Chris Bosh. I've been a Raptors fan since that day and I've not missed a game since. I've been handicapping games for more than a decade, specializing in player props.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been trying to establish themselves as a real player in the Western Conference this season. Tonight, they will get to put that to the test against the Phoenix Suns. The hosts are 5-1 to start the season and are looking like a serious threat to return to the NBA Finals once more. It is just the test this Timberwolves squad needs.

Parlay odds: +2109

Chris Paul to score 20+ points (+700)

While Chris Paul is having a tough time scoring the ball to begin the season, tonight’s opponents could represent the perfect opportunity for him to bounce back. Last season, the point guard averaged 21 points per game against the Timberwolves. And while the visitors tonight do boast a new center on their roster, he is unlikely to impact Paul too much. After all, when taking on Rudy Gobert and the Utah Jazz last season, the point guard managed to score 21.3 points per game.

D’Angelo Russell is likely going to get the assignment of matching up against Paul. The Timberwolves point guard is hardly a lock down defender and should be exploitable in pick and roll situations. Paul should have a choice between trying to attack Karl-Anthony Towns or Rudy Gobert in that scenario. Towns has the worst defensive rating of any Timberwolves player seeing over 15 minutes of playing time a night. Gobert on the other hand is likely to drop off from Paul, allowing him to attack from the mid-range. That is an area the veteran thrives in. Look for him to put together his best scoring night of the season.

Take a look at our full preview for Minnesota Timberwolves vs Phoenix Suns

Rudy Gobert to record 16+rebounds (+168)

Gobert has started off the season rebounding the ball well, averaging 14.7 rebounds per game. He has hit the over on this line in 3 of his 7 games, coming a single rebound short on another occasion. He failed to get close to it on 3 occasions, but all of those games were against the San Antonio Spurs. The Suns should represent a good matchup for the French center. With Deandre Ayton injured, he will be spending most of his time up against Bismack Biyombo. The center has no floor spacing ability, which should keep Gobert in prime rebounding position throughout the night.

Biyombo is a very keen shot blocker, currently averaging 1.8 blocks per game in just 13 minutes per night. With him eager to help on the Timberwolves drives to the rim, it could open up additional offensive rebounding opportunities for Gobert. With the Timberwolves 4th in the league in pace, there should be plenty of these opportunities for the center.
