In a recent episode of ‘KG Certified’, there was a segment titled “Ticket & Truth” wherein the participants pick the teams that will win the Sunday game. Paul Pierce selected the Suns, while Garnett selected the Wolves. Pierce claims that the Suns have players with greater experience than the Wolves, including Devin Booker and Kevin Durant. Whereas Wolves have the young blood and won’t make it to the winning side.

If Phoenix plays the T-Wolves you ain't confident. You got these experienced cats at the bottom. If they gotta play these young boys, man, that experience might just show.
Paul Pierce reasoned

Pierce’s prophecy came true, and the Suns prevailed 125-106. Bradley Beal scored 36 points, while Booker contributed 23 points. Durant only had 15 points, which was a little off. They did, however, manage to secure the sixth slot and escape the play-in round.
