Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

Karl-Anthony Towns absence is badly felt by the T-Wolves and the three games that he has been gone seems like a long time already as long as this losing streak continues. So far, Andrew Wiggins is starting to pick up on his potential. Against the Blazers, Wiggins led the team with 33 points, six rebounds and four three-pointers. Filling in for Towns is center Gorguio Dieng who had 15 points and 12 rebounds but he struggles from the field sinking 25% of his shots. Jeff Teague is the team’s court general with 18 points, eight assists and six rebounds but the surprise of their previous game was Shabazz Napier finishing with 18 points and four threes. Against the Warriors, they should lay it all out and Napier’s performance demands to be replicated. Much more with Dieng’s shot selection is expected to improve.

Golden State Warriors Betting

Finally, the Golden State Warriors scored a win in their last game with the Portland Trail Blazers but the victory came at a cost by losing Eric Paschall in this match against the T-Wolves. D’Angelo Russell paved the way for the Warriors with 25 points, seven assists and two steals. The big step up came from Damon Lee who had 20 points, seven rebounds and four three-pointers. Despite being placed on the with the return of Russell, Alec Burks still maintained his numbers with 18 points, eight rebounds and four steals. In order to take this win over Minessota, Draymond Green needs to be in his championship form. In the last game, he provided some good contributions with 10 points and eight rebounds but they need him to be controlling the boards especially that Towns will most probably not play in this game.
