This cross-conference matchup includes two of the worst teams in the NBA currently, and are looking to just get experience for their youth in the second half of the season.
The Knicks are struggling to find any ounce of success for this season thus far.
The Timberwolves are filled with young, fresh talent and are looking for the future.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks have been struggling all season looking for wins, and they went into the all-star break on a five game losing streak. During that five game stretch the offense was averaging 96.6 points per game and they were giving up 102.2 points per game.
The New York Knicks are being led by Veteran Carmelo Anthony. Anthony is able to stay on the court this year which has been a positive note. Melo is averaging 21.4 points per game to go with 7.9 rebounds. He is paced by rookie Kristaps Porzingus who has played well over expectation thus far.
Porzingus is averaging a solid 13.8 points to go with 7.7 rebounds.
The Knicks were last in action over a week ago where they were defeated at home by the Washington Wizards 111-108. Carmelo Anthony had a great game for the Knicks, scoring 33 points and pulling down 13 boards. Porzingus was also able to chip in 20 points against the Wiz.
The Knicks are looking to get experience for their youth in the second half where they are far out of playoff contention, currently standing in 12th place in the Eastern Conference.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have struggled in the first half of the season but went into the all-star break on somewhat of a positive note, winning of 3 of 5 games to head into the break.
During that span the Wolves had an offensive surge averaging 110.8 points per game but also giving up 110.8 points per game defensively.
The T-Wolves are led by a young group of players. Andrew Wiggins is leading the team in scoring in his second year in the NBA, averaging 20.8 points per game this season. Also, another big performer is rookie Karl-Anthony Towns.
Towns, who is showing why he was the number 1 pick, is averaging 17.1 points per game to go with 10.1 board per game.
The Timberwolves were last in action beating a good Toronto Raptors team at home 117-112 before the all-star break. Towns had a huge game with 35 points to go with 11 rebounds. Also, Andrew Wiggins was able to produce 26 points in the contest.
Minnesota has a very bright future with this team right, with another lottery pick that they are likely to get this year, look out for them next season.

Free New York Knicks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
In this game between the bottom of the NBA I don’t believe that talent level compares. Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns are going to be superstars in this league in a short period of time. They both can take the game over scoring as they have shown to do so many times.
