Look all you want, Rubio won't be on the court.  He is out for the season.  Minnesota really will miss him.  He the general on the court making plays and scoring.

Suns -3.5

I expect the wheels to fall off the Minnesota bus with Rubio out. Why? Without Rubio Minnesota was 17-65 last year. That is worse than horrible. Without Rubio this year they have only played one game and they lost to New Orleans at home.  A team with a 3-16 road record before their win at Minnesota. Phoenix ain't that bad, they are playing at home. Take Suns-3.5.  everybody.

 Cheers to All.

Hope everyone is safe.

Phoenix-3.5 the safest team to bet on.
Wolves has been pampered by rubio's stunning plays since joining them.  Now that he's gone, expect them to play more outside the arc.

This game will be predictable.  Love will do all the work here. He needs to overwork things. I am not gonna be surprise if he goes beyond 30pts and rebound on this game.  Though, he'll be scared to risk an injury.

Bonus: Suns plays better offense than wolves.

BOL to All.

Luke Ridnour is a great replacement for Rubio , There won't be any wheels falling off for the T wolves , they are still a solid team without Rubio , lets not forget about LOVE !!!!!!!!!

I like the T wolves to win this one outright !!!!!!!

Ridnour is a DECENT replacement for Rubio, but not even close in assists and managing game from the PG position...I also concur, that the wheels will begin to fall off for TWolves, and Nash and Co. will keep their home winning streak alive and well...will be at the game tonight and gonna do our best to rattle Love and Co.everytime they go to the stripe...GLTA

I believe that ridnour will be ok but it will take a game or so to adjust to playing w/o rickyr. tonight will be game 2 no ricky and @ suns and they are a descent team gonna go with suns-3.5 and under 198.5 that .5 will be the difference in the total and i like the suns by 8-12  good luck all
