Tom Thibodeau makes his first appearance back in Chicago since being fired as the Bulls coach. This time he will be coaching the visiting team, the Minnesota Timberwolves.
It’s a story of teams heading two different directions. The Wolves come in struggling and the Bulls come in hot.
This is the first meeting between the two teams this year, the Wolves won both meetings last year.
The Timberwolves have the talent on the roster to be a playoff team, and a very good playoff team at that. The results just haven’t been there yet.
The Timberwolves have lost their last four games, but actually should come into this game with some confidence. In their last game against the Warriors, they were leading by 8 points going into the fourth quarter. Before they completely collapsed.
The Timberwolves collapsing has actually been the story of this season. The Wolves play good for three quarters, but also have one bad quarter each night. It had been the third quarter being the problem, but as of late it has been the fourth.
The Timberwolves do have a lot of outside threat on their team. LaVine, Wiggins, and Towns can all step behind the arc on shoot it. To win this game I think they will have to make a bunch of three pointers.
On the defensive end the Wolves have really struggled. They give up 109.8 points per game which is very unlike a Thibodeau defense. Opposing teams are shooting 47.7 percent from the field.
The Timberwolves have an identical record on the home and road, going 3-9.
There must be a fountain of youth in Chicago somewhere because Dwayne Wade has seemed to find it. He is averaging 20.2 points per game, and he seems to be moving a lot better this season.
He looks like a player in his mid 20’s not a guy about to go out of the league, which at times the last few years it didn’t look like his knees were going to hold up.
The Bulls come into this game with a lot of confidence. They have won their last two games, and one of those was over a very good Spurs team.
The one weakness the Bulls still have on the offensive end is they can’t shoot the three ball at all. Coming into the season experts said they were going to struggle in that part of the game, but I don’t think anyone expected this back.
Coming into Tuesday’s game they are shooting 30 percent from behind the arc.
On the defensive end Chicago has really played well. They only give up 99 points a game, and opposing teams shoot 44 percent from the field.
So far this season the Bulls are 7-3 at the United Center.

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
If you look into the trends all signs point to the Bulls winning and covering against the spread. I don’t think that will be the case though.
The Wolves will come into this game hungry and Thibs will really want to get a win back in Chicago.
