Brooklyn Nets Betting

The Brooklyn Nets lost to the Los Angeles Lakers during that match and that made them slip in the NBA Eastern Conference standings to tie the Philadelphia 76ers for the best record at 36-17. This team will be traveling to their next game against the Minnesota Timberwolves without Kyrie Irving who is out for personal reasons. This will be the third game that Kevin Durant will be playing since returning from the injury. It will be a good chance for him to get to know his new teammates, LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin. James Harden will also be out for this matchup as well.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves managed to pick up a win and that makes them closer to overtaking the Houston Rockets who are just half a game above them at 14-39. The retooled Chicago Bulls were their opponents and won by four points, 121-117. Karl-Anthony Towns stuffed up the stat sheet with 27 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and three triples while shooting a perfect 8-of-8 from the free-throw line. D’Angelo Russell came off the bench but he seems to be back in game shape since the injury, doing 27 points and four assists while Naz Reid had 18.

Players to Watch: K. Towns C 33 GP 33 GS 34.6 MIN 24.9 PTS 2.8 OR 8.4 DR 11.1 REB 4.5 AST 0.8 STL 1.4 BLK 3.2 TO 3.5 PF 1.4 AST/TO 20.27 PER
