The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of best teams in the Western conference right now. The team has won three of their last five games and travel to face the Atlanta Hawks.
The Hawks are arguably the worst team in the NBA this season. Atlanta is 1-4 over the last five games, and were recently blown out by the Wizards, 129-104.
The last time the Timberwolves and Hawks took the court against each other, was last year. Minnesota swept the season series, 2-0. Look for this matchup to be closer than anticipated.
Minnesota is looking like a team that can make the second round of the Western conference playoffs this season. Minnesota is 32-20 this year and much improved from last season. The addition of Jimmy Butler, looks to be just what Minnesota needed.
Butler is one of the best two-way players in the NBA, and has been the past three seasons. He is averaging 21.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5 assists per game this season.
The All Star brings the veteran leadership needed to make the Timberwolves go.
Minnesota recently beat the Brooklyn Nets, 111-97. The Timberwolves weren’t at their best. They shot 44 percent from the floor and 19 percent from three-point land in the win.
Jimmy Butler led the way for Minnesota with 21 points. Andrew Wiggins also dropped 21 in the win.
On of the reasons for Minnesota’s success this season is because of their defense. The Timberwolves are allowing 105.9 points per game. Not great, but not bad either. Expect Minnesota to come out and hold the Hawks to under 100 points.
If Minnesota is to be taken serious in the West, they must get better on the road. The team is 12-14 as the visitor this season.
The Atlanta Hawks are terrible this season. The team sits 19 games under .500, and have a home record of 10-15 this year. Their once was a time when the Hawks were to be taken serious.
Philips Arena use to be a place Atlanta played their hearts out. Now, the court is just a place for tanking. Atlanta unloaded all their stars from recent years.
The Hawks have no stars on the team, and no true number one and two scoring options. Dennis Schroder leads the team in scoring with 19.9 points per game this season.
After Schroder, there are six other Hawks scoring in double digits. With all due respect to Schroder, he is not a number one scoring option on almost any other team in the NBA.
The Hawks are 3-5 over their last eight games, and recently took a beating at Washington. Atlanta is allowing 108 points per game this season.
That ranks the Hawks 23rd in points allowed per game this year. Atlanta will have their hands full against the Timberwolves at Philips.

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
Minnesota is clearly the more talented, and athletic team than Atlanta this year. Look for a balanced game from Jimmy Butler and a huge game from Karl Anthony-Towns. Atlanta will have no answer for him in the painted area.
The only thing that will save the Hawks from getting demolished by double digits, is if the Timberwolves decide to indulge in the Atlanta nightlife before the game.
