What channel is Timberwolves vs. Suns on today? Time, live stream for Game 3 of 2024 NBA Playoffs series | Sporting News United Kingdom

The Timberwolves and Suns will meet in Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinals in Phoenix on Friday night, as Minnesota holds a 2-0 series lead. The Timberwolves took care of business on Tuesday night with a 105-93 victory, which was spearheaded by a 25-point outing from Jaden McDaniels.

Minnesota arguably played its best game of the postseason thus far as it had another impressive defensive outing. The Timberwolves forced 10 turnovers and prevented the Suns from shooting no better than 36 percent from 3-point range. To make matters worse for the Suns, despite making all but four free-throw attempts, they were done in by a combined 36-point performance from Mike Conley and Rudy Gobert.

The Suns return home for the first time since April 9, where they finished 25-16 during the regular-season that included a late-season win against the Timberwolves.

If the Timberwolves were to go up 3-0 with a win Friday night, the Suns would be left with a near-impossible task entering Game 4. No team in 150 tries has ever railed from a 3-0 series deficit in an NBA seven-game series.

Can the Suns revive their way back into contention or will the Timberwolves put a near-stranglehold on the festivities?
