The visiting Heat have lost two straight and have won six of their last 10 teams. They currently own the No. 9 seed in the Eastern Conference.
The home team Timberwolves have won one straight and have won just three of their last 10 overall. They currently own the No. 10 seed out West.
These two tip off at 8:00 p.m. ET on Friday.
The Heat are in a race as tight as it gets to make the playoffs out East. As of this writing, Miami is sitting just one game behind the No. 6 Detroit Pistons and just half a game behind the No. 9 Orlando Magic.
For the record, the Heat are also just two games ahead of the No. 10 Charlotte Hornets. That’s how close this race is.
Nothing is guaranteed at this point, which is why wins are like gold to a team like Miami.
But against Minnesota, the Heat have a good chance to coming away with a straight-up win against a Western Conference foe that has struggled to come up with wins despite getting some other-worldly play out of their superstar center, Karl-Anthony Towns.
Josh Richardson is listed as questionable as of this writing, but make sure you check in on his status ahead of the tip, as it’s rumored he could be out as long as two weeks. That’s bad timing with the end of the regular season less than a week away.
Minnesota really doesn’t need wins at this point. In fact, losses get them closer to their ultimate goal, which at this juncture is just lottery positioning.
But don’t tell that to Towns, who has taken it upon himself to help build a winning culture in a post-Jimmy Butler, Tom Thibodeau era.
Against Miami, Towns should have a field day. Hassan Whiteside is still a big, able-bodied center who can block shots with aplomb, but he seems to have regressed and missed the superstar leap altogether that fans in South Beach were clinging onto.
He won’t be much of a deterrent to Towns, and neither will Bam Adebayo, who seems to have taken over as the primary center anyway in favor of the stats-chasing Whiteside.

Miami should get a win straight up in this one, while the Timberwolves should be able to keep things close behind the elite play of Towns.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat -1
The Heat improve their playoff positioning, while Minnesota improves its lottery positioning. The ‘Wolves also take a step in the right direction as far as winning culture is concerned, as not only Towns should play well, but Andrew Wiggins could put together a good game without Richardson in his way.
This is a win-win situation for both teams.
