Minnesota (12-39) will travel East to Boston Friday night to take on the Celtics (26-26). The two teams will occupy TD Garden which is bad news for the Timberwolves as they boast a league worst 5-22 record on the road.
Boston sits at an even record on the year but are only 1 game back from climbing to the 4th spot in the weak Eastern Conference. Minnesota holds the worst record in the league and have a 1.5 game gap between them and the next team (Houston).
This is the first matchup between these teams and they will only play again on May 15th in Minnesota to wrap up the season.
Boston has split their last 10 games and sit at an even record on the season overall at 26-26. Its been a disappointing year for the Celtics after making the ECF in 3 of the last 4 years . GM Danny Ainge made some moves including adding Thristan Thompson and Evan Fournier but it hasn’t helped the teams roster.
The team just finished playing Wednesday at home against the Knicks as they inched out 101-99 victory. Jaylen Brown scored a game high 32 points and Jayson Tatum added 25 points as the dynamic duo continue to account for over half the teams offensive production.
All-Star Jayson Tatum leads Boston averaging 25.1 points (team best), 7 rebounds (2nd best), 4.3 assists (team best), and 1.3 steals (team best). Fellow All-Star Jaylen Brown follows Tatum with 24.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 3.5 assists.
The T’Wolves have had their share of defensive woes as of late too, the thing with Minnesota is that they don’t have the offense to stay close in those high scoring affairs. Minnesota has been held to 108 points or less in 8 of their last 10.
Minnesota may be a bit thin in the backcourt on Friday as well, with Ricky Rubio (back), Malik Beasley (hamstring), and Jaylen Nowell (leg) all listed as doubtful. There is Boston’s edge.
D’Angelo Russell made his long awaited return Monday night, scoring 25 points in a loss to Sacramento. The former all-star missed 26 straight games after undergoing a knee procedure.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
These teams are far apart on season expectations as Boston has made 3 of the last 4 ECF while Minnesota has only reached the playoffs once in the last 17 seasons.
Minnesota is sitting at the bottom of the league and will once again be in play for the #1 overall pick just a year after drafting Anthony Edwards first. they have also dealt with injuries to their main players Russell and Towns.
The spread has yet to be released but I’d expect Boston to be favorited at home. The Celtics have been an inconsistent team all season but they still have the star power and will to win while Minnesota is solely set on draft positioning. Take Boston.
