Minnesota Timberwolves at Golden State Warriors
Monday, December 23, 2019 at 10:30 PM (Chase Center)
The Minnesota Timberwolves go to the Chase Center in San Francisco, California, to take on the Golden State Warriors on Monday. The Minnesota Timberwolves have been one of the worst teams in the NBA as of late. The Timberwolves are on a ten-game losing streak at the moment.
At the beginning of the season, the Minnesota Timberwolves were one of the surprise teams of the NBA. Andrew Wiggins looked like he had finally found himself, Jeff Teague was playing well, and Karl Anthony-Towns was an MVP candidate. Karl Anthony-Towns has done well this season still, but the Minnesota Timberwolves have been an awful team defensively as of late, and with each passing game, they're falling deeper and deeper out of contention for the playoffs. It is night and day how different this Minnesota team is from the beginning of the season to now.
The Golden State Warriors are coming off of a 106-102 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. The win snapped a five-game losing streak that the Warriors were on. However, Golden State Warriors have only won two games out of their last ten.
The Golden State Warriors are 6-24 on the season, and due to all of their injuries, they have become one of the worst teams in the NBA. This game will be interesting for the Warriors as there have been rumors floated around about D'Angelo Russell being traded to Minnesota to pair up with Karl Anthony-Towns.
Minnesota is 10-17 ATS this season
Over is 5-1 in Timberwolves' last six road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
Golden State is 13-17 ATS this season
Under is 5-1 in Warriors last six home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
As bad as the Golden State Warriors are, the Minnesota Timberwolves have actually been worse recently, which is extremely concerning when comparing both rosters. However, when you do compare both rosters, the Minnesota Timberwolves are far more talented, and I think that this is the game where the Minnesota Timberwolves turn it around and finally get a win and snap their extremely long losing streak. Final Score Prediction, Minnesota Timberwolves win 127 - 116.
