|Rudy Gobert (GTD)||C|
The Minnesota Timberwolves are 34-34 and seventh in the Western Conference standings. The Timberwolves are coming off a 124-123 OT loss to the Nets and have lost five of their last eight games. Anthony Edwards leads this Minnesota team averaging 24.8 points per game. In the game against the Nets, Edwards dropped 32 points. The Timberwolves are averaging 115.4 points per game and are shooting 49% from the field and 35.8% from behind the arc.
The Atlanta Hawks are also 34-34 on the year and are currently eighth in the Eastern Conference standings. The Hawks are coming off a 134-125 loss to Boston and are 4-4 in their last eight games. Trae Young leads Atlanta with 26.8 and 10.1 assists per game this year. Clint Capela leads the team in rebounds averaging 11.1 boards per game. The Hawks are averaging 117.3 points per game. They are shooting 48.2% from the field and 35.5% from behind the arc.
Both teams have been in a slump as of late. The absence of Karl-Anthony Towns is huge, and Minnesota has struggled without him. Atlanta is the better team here, and I love what Trae Young can do on the court. The Young and Dejounte Murray duo is dangerous, and Minnesota will have a hard time covering them. Give me Atlanta in this one at home.
