Only one more quarter stands between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the victory they were favored to collect going into this night. They have emerged as the frontrunner and are ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder 71-63.
Minnesota has been relying on point guard Patrick Beverley, who has shot 5-for-8 from beyond the arc and has recorded 15 points and four dimes, and shooting guard Anthony Edwards, who has 15 points along with five steals and five boards. Those points put Beverley near his season high of 16.
Shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (15 points) has been the top scorer for Oklahoma City.
the Thunder have lost 87% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up
Oklahoma City @ Minnesota
Current Records: Oklahoma City 13-23; Minnesota 17-20
After three games on the road, the Minnesota Timberwolves are heading back home. The Timberwolves and the Oklahoma City Thunder will face off in a Northwest Division battle at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Target Center. Minnesota is out to stop a five-game streak of losses at home.
Minnesota strolled past the Los Angeles Clippers with points to spare on Monday, taking the contest 122-104. Minnesota can attribute much of their success to shooting guard Anthony Edwards, who shot 5-for-10 from beyond the arc and finished with 28 points.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma City came up short against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, falling 95-86. Despite the defeat, OKC got a solid performance out of point guard Josh Giddey, who posted a triple-double on 17 points, 14 assists, and 13 boards. That’s Giddey’s first triple-double of the season.
Minnesota is the favorite in this one, with an expected 9.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
The Timberwolves’ victory brought them up to 17-20 while the Thunder’s loss pulled them down to 13-23. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: Minnesota has only been able to knock down 43.20% percent of their shots, which is the fourth lowest field goal percentage in the league. OKCs have had an even harder time: they have only been able to knock down 41.40% percent of their shots, which is the lowest field goal percentage in the league. It could be a slow night.
