Memphis is looking to break a losing streak in this one but has not had a lot of success on the road this season.
Minnesota might have played their worst game of the season when these teams last met in early November, losing 137-121.
The Timberwolves are well rested and presumably well fed. this is their first game after Thanksgiving.
A little turkey did nothing to help the Grizzlies game as they lost coming out of a mini break. It was to Utah though and that is never a fun matchup.
Rookie Ja Morant is having a very nice season. His strong shooting has him leading the club in scoring and once he starts playing with more control he will be even more lethal with the ball in his hands.
Fellow rookie Brandon Clarke is only one of the most productive per minute players in the NBA. He averages 12 and 6 in just 21 minutes per game. Plus a block per game as his athleticism plays really well.
Jarren Jackson Jr. might be second on the team in scoring but his game has not advanced much this season. I don’t understand why a guy with his height and length only gets five rebounds per game. Or why his minutes are not higher.
Jonas Valanciunas is doing what he always does which is score and rebound. He is another per minute marvel with 13 and 10 averages in only 24 minutes per game.
Memphis is alright scoring the ball but their defense is killing them, they are third worst in points allowed. They are not looking to win games this season, just develop some players, and from that perspective I think the season is going well.
I am not sure who Minnesota bribed but they got a nice Thanksgiving break, they have not played since Wednesday night.
That definitely is an edge in this one. They have won their last two games, both on the road, and this home date is wedged in there before a four game road trip. They have to make the most of this one.
Through a quarter of the season the duo of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins has been really good. The way towns has been shooting has made him a monster and opened space for Wiggins who is having the best season of his career so far. .
Jarrett Culver was their top pick this season and he has been getting more run of late. When his offense is enough to keep him on the floor it makes a big difference because he can be a difference maker on defense with his length and anticipation.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
It is hard not to like the well rested Timberwolves in this spot, though not necessarily because of that.
In Towns and Wiggins the Timberwolves have two strong go to scorers that are going to be hard for Memphis to corral. I would love to see the Grizzlies put Clarke on Wiggins for the game but they probably will just keep doing what they are doing.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Timberwolves
The over looks like it is probably the right play here. Memphis has been loose all season long and if Minnesota is up they are not they type to clamp down.
