The Charlotte Hornets managed to end their five-game losing streak against the Detroit Pistons in their last game. Miles Bridges came out as the best player of the team with 18 points and seven rebounds while Malik Monk came off the bench with 17 points. Devonte Graham was across the board with 14 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds and those three players mentioned carried Terry Rozier who had an off night shooting 4-of-13 from the field. This team was fortunate to beat the depleted Pistons and they will be facing an inspired tandem of Karl-Anthony Towns and DeAngelo Russell. Both players are going to be a tough cover for the team.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
The Minnesota Timberwolves really looked like a team that clicks a lot with the reunion of Towns and Russell. They managed to beat the Los Angeles Clippers by a wide margin of 142-115. Two days after, Minnesota stumbled against the Toronto Raptors in the enemy’s home court in Canada and they gave them quite a scare buy coming close. In the end, the experience of the Raptors prevailed but that loss was a win in morale for Minnesota. This is a team that looks to gear up for next season but with not much bearing and effort, they still have to get a few victories to build on.
