Minnesota Timberwolves vs Oklahoma City Thunder
Monday, January 13 – 20:00 EST – Target Center
The Timberwolves have been one of the most underwhelming teams of the 2019-2020 season. Right now the Timberwolves need to improve in all facets of the game. Oklahoma City is averaging 111.3 points in their last three games. Opposing teams are averaging 114.7 points per game against Minnesota this season. If they do not shore things up on defence, teams will continue to outscore them. However, things could get even worse on offence as well. This team boasts the second-worst 3-point shooting percentage in the league. They dropped their last game against the Rockets by a whopping 30 points. To make matters worse, not a single Timberwolves player eclipsed the 16 point mark. Andrew Wiggins completely disappeared in this one and he must bounce back tonight.
The Thunder can be extremely proud with the way they have played recently. If they can keep this pace up, they will almost certainly land a playoff spot. Along with Adams, the Thunder will continue to rely heavily on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. The veteran resurgence of Chris Paul has also helped boost their 108.9 scoring average. The Thunder dropped their latest encounter in ugly fashion. They played a Lakers team who were missing Davis and James. Certainly this Oklahoma team were equipped to handle a Lakers team lead by Kuzma. It turns out the Lakers reserve squad still managed to defeat a lacklustre Thunder team. It is imperative that this Thunder squad bounce back tonight if they wan’t to start another string of wins that can land them a playoff spot.
