Through 1 Quarter

The Minnesota Timberwolves are giving their home crowd exactly what it was hoping to see. They are way out in front after one quarter with a 34-22 lead over the San Antonio Spurs.

Minnesota has been relying on center Karl-Anthony Towns, who has 11 points and two assists in addition to three boards, and shooting guard Anthony Edwards, who has ten points and two assists along with four rebounds and one block. Small forward Lonnie Walker IV has done his best for San Antonio, currently boasting nine points (41% of their total) and two assists.

What to Know

The Minnesota Timberwolves are getting right back to it as they host the San Antonio Spurs at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 18 at Target Center. The Timberwolves should still be riding high after a win, while San Antonio will be looking to right the ship.

Minnesota beat the Sacramento Kings 107-97 on Wednesday. The top scorer for Minnesota was shooting guard Anthony Edwards (26 points).

Meanwhile, San Antonio ended up a good deal behind the Los Angeles Clippers when they played on Tuesday, losing 106-92. Small forward Doug McDermott had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 28 minutes but putting up just seven points on 3-for-10 shooting.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Minnesota is expected to win a tight contest on Thursday. But bettors beware: they are only 2-4 against the spread when favored.

The Timberwolves’ victory brought them up to 5-9 while the Spurs’ loss pulled them down to 4-10. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Minnesota is worst in the league in fouls per game, with 22.9 on average. To make matters even worse for Minnesota, San Antonio comes into the contest boasting the second fewest fouls per game in the league at 17. Keep an eye on whether or not foul trouble puts Minnesota in a difficult position.
