In the last day of the 2023/24 NBA regular season, which will be played tonight and will see in action the 30 teams that make up the competition, Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns will face each other in a crucial game for both, which could however count with the absence of Anthony Edwards due to rest. The stars of the game will be Rudy Gobert and Kevin Durant.
The Suns will play as visitors with the obligation to win to be able to aspire to direct qualification for the playoffs. To do so, in addition to beating Minnesota, Phoenix must wait for the Los Angeles Lakers to defeat the New Orleans Pelicans, the 6th place team in the Western Conference.
The Timberwolves, meanwhile, find themselves in a three-way tie with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Denver Nuggets for the Western throne. All three have a 56-25 record. OKC is the only one depending on itself, as it benefits from that tie. Minnesota only has to wait for the Thunder to lose their game against Dallas Mavericks, since the tie benefits them over Denver.
