Andrew Wiggins led the way for his team with 19 points while Jeff Teague added 15 markers.

Bradley Beal was on fire that night, recording 46 points with 8 assists and 6 rebounds. Rui Hachimura put up 23 markers while Davis Bertans added 21.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Washington Wizards Betting Picks
The Timberwolves and the Wizards split their last 10 head-to-head games. In those games, Minnesota averaged 110.70 PPG on 47.59% FG while Washington scored 110.30 PPG on 48.13% FG shooting.
Moneyline: The Wizards (-135) should be the wiser pick in this game, knowing their opponent will be without their double-double machine and All-Star in Karl-Anthony Towns.
ATS: NBA betting odds give the Wizards -2.5 handicap in the game, and that would be enough to get their fifth ATS to win in the many games.
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 227 points. Picking this game to go over sounds like a good bet since the Wizards are coming off a high-scoring ballgame and there is no Towns manning the paint for the T-Wolves on defense.
