Who’s Playing

Minnesota @ Denver

Current Records: Minnesota 43-34; Denver 46-31

What to Know

The Minnesota Timberwolves’ road trip will continue as they head to Ball Arena at 9 p.m. ET Friday to face off against the Denver Nuggets. Denver will be strutting in after a win while the Timberwolves will be stumbling in from a loss.

Things couldn’t have gone much worse for Minnesota as they lost 125-102 to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. This contest was a close 62-60 at the break, but unfortunately for Minnesota it sure didn’t stay that way. Point guard D’Angelo Russell had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 27 minutes with 3-for-15 shooting.

Meanwhile, Denver bagged a 125-118 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. Center Nikola Jokic continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, almost dropping a triple-double on 37 points, 13 boards, and nine dimes. That makes it three consecutive games in which Jokic has had at least 12 rebounds.

Minnesota is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

The Timberwolves are now 43-34 while the Nuggets sit at 46-31. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: Minnesota comes into the game boasting the second most points per game in the league at 115.2. Denver has displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they rank second in the league when it comes to field goal percentage, with 48.10% on the season.
