The Timberwolves are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. NBA Pacific and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

The Golden State Warriors may have some issues going on right now, but they usually bounce back in a big way after a loss, and they've won seven of the last nine meetings against the Timberwolves, with most of those games not being close. The Minnesota Timberwolves continue to struggle defensively, which includes allowing 49.1 percent shooting and losing their last five games by an average of nine points. I simply don't trust the Timberwolves most nights with their rough defense, and I'm certainly not backing them against the Warriors, with or without Cousins and Durant. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Warriors.
