The Minnesota Timberwolves play host to the Brooklyn Nets at the Target Center on Saturday night. Here’s a Timberwolves vs Nets Prediction.

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have been in rough shape as they’ve lost six of their last seven games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting thrashed by the Raptors in a 121-93 road loss on Thursday. Mikal Bridges led the team with 21 points, Cam Thomas added 19 points while Lonnie Walker chipped in with 11 points off the bench, but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Nets shot 41 percent from the field and 11 of 37 from the 3-point line as they got off to a slow start and quickly fell behind after scoring just 21 points in the first quarter, but they did a decent job of staying within striking distance until they leaked 39 points in the fourth quarter to get blown out in the end. The Nets will face Grizzlies and Magic after this game.

Minnesota Timberwolves

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been in decent shape as they’ve won seven of their last 10 games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after having their four-game win streak halted by the Bucks in a 112-107 loss last night. Anthony Edwards led the team with 28 points, nine rebounds and five assists, Karl-Anthony Towns added 22 points with 13 rebounds and three assists while Rudy Gobert chipped in with 12 points and 19 rebounds. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 43 percent from the field and 13 of 35 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in control when they restricted the Bucks to just 20 points in the second quarter to take the early lead, but they let their hard work go to waste in the third quarter where they got outscored by an incredible 36-13.

Minnesota Timberwolves Team Facts

  • The Timberwolves have won each of their last six home games on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • The Timberwolves have covered the spread in 10 of their last 11 games against the Nets following a loss.
  • Each of the Timberwolves’ last nine Saturday games at Target Center have gone UNDER the total points line.

Brooklyn Nets Team Facts

  • The Nets have lost eight of their last nine road games against Western Conference opponents.
  • The Nets have failed to cover the spread in each of their last six games as underdogs.
  • Each of the Nets’ last seven games against opponents who are on the second leg of a back-to-back have gone UNDER the total points line.

Timberwolves vs Nets Prediction

The Nets have really been struggling for a while now and their confidence took another gut shot after getting dismantled by the Raptors in a 121-93 loss on Thursday, while the Timberwolves were riding a four-game win streak, before they got ambushed by the Bucks in a tough loss last night. The last time these teams met it was a 96-94 road win to the Timberwolves, so given the current form slump of the Nets, I’m definitely looking at the Timberwolves to get the win and cover despite playing their second game of a back to back set.
