San Antonio Spurs vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Where: Target Center, Minneapolis, MN

When: Wednesday, November 13, 8:05 PM. ET.

The Minnesota Timberwolves will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night.

Spurs Trying To Snap Two-Game Losing Streak

The Spurs haven’t played well over the last week and have lost four of their last five games. They will be trying to snap their two-game losing streak and pick up their second win in their last six games when they face the Timberwolves.

San Antonio has played well offensively, averaging 112.2 points per game. The team is shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 35.1 percent from three-point range.

They have been inconsistent during their current slump and were held to 109 points in their last game. LaMarcus Aldridge led the way for the Spurs in that game, finishing with 19 points and four rebounds. Rudy Gay added 18 points and eight rebounds, while Derrick White finished with 15 points and five assists.

San Antonio hasn’t played well defensively, holding opponents to 112.7 points per game. They have given up 124 points per game in their last two games and won’t win too many games if they don’t play better than that.

Timberwolves Trying To Snap Two-Game Losing Streak To Spurs

The Timberwolves bounced back from their loss to the Denver Nuggets with a win over the Detroit Pistons in their last game. They will be trying to pick up their second win in a row and snap their two-game losing streak against the Spurs when they play on Wednesday.

Minnesota has done a good job offensively, averaging 116 points per game. The team is shooting 43.5 percent from the field and 30.8 percent from three-point range.

They are coming off a 120-point performance that was led by Andrew Wiggins, who finished with 33 points, six rebounds, and five assists. Karl-Anthony Towns finished the game with 25 points, eight rebounds, and six assists, while Jake Layman added 16 points and two rebounds.

The Timberwolves haven’t been as good defensively, giving up 116.4 points per game. They have given up 107 points per game in their last two games and will need to continue playing well defensively to get the win.

The Timberwolves are the pick here because they have played better than the Spurs over the past week, winning two of their last three games, while the Spurs are struggling, losing their last two games and four of their last five games. Both teams haven’t played well on the defensive end, but the Timberwolves have played better offensively, averaging 116 points per game, while the Spurs are averaging 112.2 points per game. With the Spurs having only one road win so far this year, expect the Timberwolves to win comfortably here.
