The Warriors and Timberwolves may have different goals in mind this season, and it’s shown in their last two meetings. The Dubs have come out 2-0 SU in the series so far, scoring exactly 116 points each time, never winning by fewer than eight points.
These two face off two more times this season, the next encounter taking place Tuesday night.
Golden State Warriors
The main thing the Warriors need to worry about at this point in the 2018-19 season is health. Yes, a No. 1 seed is important, but as we saw last year, it’s not crucial.
The Dubs can afford to rest players down the stretch, and they’ve been doing just that.
Lately, this group has gone into battle without Kevin Durant for the past couple of games, and now against Minnesota, the team is set to do the same but swap in DeMarcus Cousins. Or more literally, swap him out following an MRI that came back clean.
Boogie should be able to go for the postseason, as should Durant. The Warriors don’t have any serious inuries holding them back, and they’re trying to keep it that way.
Against Minnesota, the Warriors will be favored barring some sort of unforeseen late scratch for Stephen Curry. But if the squad is shorthanded, Karl Anthony-Towns alone could be enough to keep this one close.
But again, only if Golden State isn’t playing a full hand.
The Minnesota Timberwolves aren’t mathematically eliminated from the 2019 playoffs, but if any team is sneaking in at this point out West, it’s the young, energetic Sacramento Kings led by De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield and a plethora of young talent.
And for the record…the Kings ain’t getting in either.
With that in mind, Minnesota needs to focus more on establishing a winning culture and letting Karl-Anthony Towns blossom into the leader and superstar he has the potential to become. Losing is great for tanking teams when it comes to lottery positioning, but the ‘Wolves aren’t tanking—they’re just not good enough as is to compete.
Management in Minnesota at this point will prefer ping-pong balls to actual straight-up victories, but the players on the court will have a completely different mindset when it comes to competing.
Whether or not they can show it is the question. But one thing is almost certain: Expect fireworks from KAT. The Timberwolves’ big man has been on a roll lately.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction: Dubs gon’ Dub.
The Warriors aren’t desperate for wins this time of year with the No. 1 seed theirs to lose, but with just one game separating them from the No. 2 Denver Nuggets, they can’t exactly take their foot off the gas, either.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: There is no line set as of this writing. Free score prediction below.
With the ‘Wolves looking to improve their lottery positioning at this juncture, this should have a fairly one-sided feel to it throughout. But, as noted above, pay close attention not ust to what the line ends up looking like once it’s set, but what the Dubs’ rotation looks like health-wise.
This time of year, championship-or-bust teams have a tendency to sit their stars whether they’re hurt or not, and the Warriors are no exception.
Don’t let who’s in and who’s out sneak up on you; keep an eye on this one, as Golden State becomes heavy favorites if it’s healthy.
