The Minnesota Timberwolves travel to Arizona for a matchup with the Phoenix Suns. Let’s take a look at this NBA game from a DFS perspective.

Prior to discussing my Draftkings picks for the Timberwolves vs. Suns game, let’s review an important note regarding the rules and scoring for the single game showdown contests.

For those readers who are not aware, the rules and scoring for DraftKings single game showdown contests are vastly different than the traditional classic contests offered by the platform.

If you need to review the specific rules for the single game showdown contests feel free to check out the Draftkings website.

Here are my Draftkings picks for this evening’s Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Phoenix Suns matchup.

Captain-Devin Booker $10,000

Full disclosure, I recognize that Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards is a great play at captain tonight. However, with the playoff series traveling back to Arizona, I am pivoting to Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker as my captain for this one game slate.

Devin Booker has certainly been a key contributor to this Phoenix Suns offense this season. Let’s dive into Booker’s recent game data to better shed light on my previous statement.

Since the beginning of April, the Phoenix Suns have played ten games (including playoffs). In those ten games just mentioned, Devin Booker averaged a robust 26.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1.2 steals a game. It has to be said, those are the type of fantasy numbers I need from the captain position.

In the Phoenix Suns 105-93 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves three days ago, Devin Booker posted some outstanding DFS numbers. More specifically, Devin Booker accumulated 20 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals in the Suns loss to the Timberwolves.

I think Devin Booker will continue to play quality basketball versus this Minnesota Timberwolves team in Game 3 of the Western Conference playoffs later today.

Flex Plays

Anthony Edwards $11,200

Talented Minnesota guard Anthony Edwards arrives at this tonight’s game with the Phoenix Suns playing outstanding basketball from a statistical perspective. Let’s take a look at Anthony Edwards recent game data to get a better understanding of his play on the basketball court.

In the Minnesota Timberwolves last six games played, Anthony Edwards has averaged an impressive 25.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 1.3 steals, a game. I think it’s fair to say that the Timberwolves offense runs through the Minnesota point guard.

Bradley Beal $8,400

How important has Phoenix Suns guard Bradley Beal been to the Suns this season? Let’s take a look at Bradley Beal’s recent game statistics to answer that question. In the Suns’s last five games played, Beal averaged 22.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 5 assists, and 1.4 assists a game.

Additional flex plays I like this evening (Draftkings price noted): Rudy Gobert $9,200: Kevin Durant $10,400: Jusuf Nurkic $8,000: Drew Eubanks $2,800.
