Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
Two of the last wins of the Minnesota Timberwolves came from overtime. In their latest victory over the Brooklyn Nets, without Andrew Wiggins or Karl-Anthony Towns, they managed to pull off an upset. Shabazz Napier led the team with 24 points, eight assists and two steals. Jarrey Culiver had 21 points while four other T-Wolves players had double-figure scoring for the night. Gorgui Dieng proved that he can step up as well with a 20-rebound night to go with 11 points and three steals. But this is the Bucks that they are facing and they are proving that they are a title contender as the standings leader as of present. With a doubtful KAT and Wiggins, Bucks smell blood.

The Milwaukee Bucks had Giannis Antetokuonmpo and Eric Bledsoe back playing against the Chicago Bulls. They didn’t seem to be down a beat with the former MVP giving his team 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. Eric Bledsoe had 15 points in his return as well. The Lopez twins had become a factor in recent games and both of them combined for 22 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks as they took care of the paint. Kris Middleton added 25 points as the Bucks look like they are back in the championship contender form. They should give the Timberwolves a very long night at home.
