The Golden State Warriors aim to stay undefeated when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight.
The Warriors continued their undefeated start to the season with win number nine last night, beating the Grizzlies by 100-84. Stephen Curry led the team with a game-high 28 points on nine of 21 shooting, Andre Iguodala added 20 points off the bench while Harrison Barnes had 19 points as the Warriors led early, before breaking away from the Grizzlies late in the second half. The Warriors have really been the hottest team in the league and don't look to be slowing down anytime soon.

Meanwhile, the Timberwolves haven't enjoyed quite the same level of success as they're 4-0 on the road but 0-3 at home. On Tuesday against the Hornets, the Wolves suited up without usual starters Ricky Rubio and Andrew Wiggins and simply ran out of gas in a 104-95 defeat. Zach LaVine led the team with 20 points and eight assists while Karl-Anthony Towns added 19 points and Kevin Martin added 18, but the Wolves just faded as the game wore on. Both Rubio and Wiggins were late scratchings on Tuesday, but both are expected to start tonight.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record, while the Wolves are 4-1 ATS in their last five against teams with winning records and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 home games.
Head to head, the Warriors are 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Minnesota and the under is 20-8-1 in the last 29 meetings overall.
The Wolves have been one of the surprise packages at this early stage of the season, but the Warriors are just on another level and I can't see anything but a win for Golden State.
