Minnesota is ten games over .500 for the first time since 2003. The Timberwolves won back-to-back games on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, first in Indiana and then home to the Lakers to make it seven wins in their last eight games. They have a strong hold on the fourth seed in the Western Conference with a bit of a gap opening up between them and the fifth-place Thunder.
Jimmy Butler led the way with 28 points on 8-for-14 from the field and a perfect 11 free throws. He also threw nine assists but did turn it over seven times in the blowout win over a Lakers team playing without its starting backcourt.
Minnesota is on the road in Brooklyn and Boston before starting a stretch of five games in a row at home.
After starting the season shooting horribly from three, Andrew Wiggins shot 35 percent in December, including 14-for-25 in his last five games of the month, to boost his percentage to a much more respectable 33 percent.
After a five-game road trip that saw Brooklyn win only one game but play competitive basketball in all of them, the Nets returned home and beat the Orlando Magic by three on Monday, 98–95.
It’s an underwhelming result against a bad team, but that’s sort of how things have gone for the Nets this season. They don’t play all that well against teams with equally bad talent, winning some and losing some. But they are almost always competitive in games against superior teams, even though they don’t often win.
For instance, the Celtics had nothing but good things to say about the Nets after narrowly edging Brooklyn in Boston before the New Year.
The Nets have a tough stretch of home opponents coming up in Minnesota, Boston, Toronto and Detroit but I expect them to win at least one or two of those games because they aren’t giving up any wins and will make every game tough on the team that comes in. It probably won’t be a losing proposition to toss some loose change on the money line in each one of these games and hope to go 2–2 for a nice profit.
