Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves were able to avoid getting into a losing streak by defeating the Golden State Warriors by 20 points, 119-99. It was a convincing win even if the Warriors played without Steph Curry as the team’s record improved to 21-22. This team is now 8th place in the NBA Western Conference standings and currently tied with the slumping Los Angeles Lakers and just a win behind the LA Clippers. Karl-Anthony Towns is looking good against the Warriors as he tallied 26 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks. Stepping up was Jaylen Nowell and Jaden McDaniels who combined for 33 points off the bench.

New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks got their three-game winning streak snapped by the Charlotte Hornets in a low-scoring affair, 87-97. This team is currently battling to get in the play-in tournament at least as they are half a game behind the Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics with their record even at 22-22. The point guard situation of the Knicks is still complicated as Alec Burks doesn’t seem to cut it while Kemba Walker and Derrick Rose are still out of commission. On the bright side, RJ Barrett has been coming to his own and blossoming to his potential but Julius Randle is regressing from a fantastic season last year.

Players to Watch: J. Randle PF 41 GP 41 GS 35.6 MIN 19.1 PTS 1.7 OR 8.4 DR 10.1 REB 5 AST 0.7 STL 0.6 BLK 3.4 TO 2.8 PF 1.5 AST/TO 15.94 PER
