What there is to know
After four games on the road, the Minnesota Timberwolves return home. They will face the Golden State Warriors at 8 p.m. ET Sunday at Target Center after having had a few days off. Golden State should always ride high after a win, while the Timberwolves will look to right the ship.
Minnesota fell short against the Memphis Grizzlies last Thursday, losing 116-108. Despite their loss, Minnesota got to see many of their players rise to the challenge and make remarkable plays. Point guard D’Angelo Russell, who shot 6 for 11 from beyond the arc and finished with 29 points and six hundred, was the best among his peers.
Meanwhile, you’re bound to get a positive result if you outplay your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly what happened for the Dubs last Friday. They hurt the Chicago Bulls on the road to the tune of 138-96. The game was almost played at halftime, when the score had already reached 78-47. Golden State power forward Jonathan Kuminga looked sharp as he had 25 points on more than three blocks.
Minnesota is the favorite in this one, with an expected margin of victory of 4.5 points. Now might not be the best time to face the Timberwolves against the spread, as they’ve let the bettors down for the past two straight games.
When the teams last met last November, Minnesota lost to the Warriors on the road by a decisive 123-110 margin. Maybe Minnesota will have better luck at home than on the road? Watch the contest and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
