The Minnesota Timberwolves and the Golden State Warriors do battle the Oracle Arena on Saturday night.
The Timberwolves have lost four of their last six overall, but they'll be breathing a little easier following last night's 98-85 win over the Suns. Andrew Wiggins led the team with 25 points, Karl-Anthony Towns added 22 points while Zach LaVine added 13 points as the Timberwolves rallied back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to snap a three-game skid and improve to 5-10 overall and 2-6 on the road this season.

Meanwhile, the Warriors will be gunning for their 11th straight win tonight after cruising to victory in last night's 109-85 win over the Lakers. Kevin Durant led the scoring with 29 points and nine assists, Stephen Curry added 24 points with five assists while Klay Thompson chipped in with 18 points as the Warriors crushed the Lakers for the second time in three nights. With the win, Golden State improves to 14-2 overall and 9-1 on the road, but the win did come at a price as Draymond Green left the game with a left ankle contusion and did not return so his status for tonight is uncertain.
Looking at the the betting trends, the Wolves are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall and 1-6 ATS in their last seven road games, while the Warriors are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 15-7 ATS in their last 22 home games.
Head to head, the Wolves are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Golden State.
The Warriors are coming off their third straight blowout win and will look to keep it going at home while the Wolves are just 1-6 ATS on the road all season, so I'm sticking with the Warriors, even if Green isn't available to play tonight.
