The Minnesota Timberwolves being 3-0 has been a pleasant surprise to start the season, and they are finally receiving consistent production out of their franchise faces (Towns & Wiggins). The Philadelphia 76ers no doubt has one of the best lineups in all of basketball, but the Timberwolves match up well with them as Karl-Anthony Towns is a problem in the paint as he is averaging 32 PPG and 13.3 RPGs. The Timberwolves have had no problem scoring the basketball through the first few games as they rank 4th in points scored and given their early success, I believe they keep this game close.
