Much like the refs took over the final minutes of the Raptors – Nuggets game last week they did a similar thing to the Wolves in the closing segment of the match versus the Celtics.
The difference was Minny was the host of the game but it was the Celtics who were given repeated questionable calls/no calls that resulted in a two-point loss for the Wolves.

Although the last two-minute reports tend to gaslight us at least this crew owned up to messing up the no-call for Mazzulla coming onto the court and Grant Williams moving prior to the jump ball and tipping the ball before it reached its apex.
In a game that was won by two points, just these two incorrect no-calls (forget about the other questionable calls/no-calls) gifted the Celts the win.
Minnesota opponents score 115.6 points per game ranking 18th while the Wolves limit them to 46.8% from the field and 37% from deep ranking 11th and 22nd respectively.
On offense, the Wolves score 115.5 points per game ranking 12th while shooting 49.1% from the field and 35.8% from the perimeter ranking fourth and 16th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Karl-Anthony Towns, C (OUT indefinitely — calf)
- Austin Rivers, SG (questionable — back)
- Jaylen Nowell, SG (questionable —knee)
It was a tough loss on Wednesday to the Kings who played to their identity with Fox scoring in clutch time and Sabonis collecting another triple-double.
The Bulls held the Kings under their league-leading points-per-game average and forced 19 turnovers. DeMar DeRozan extended his mid-range game out to the 3-point line and drilled the extra point on the foul call to tie things up – – until Fox scored the game-winner.
Chicago scores 113.2 points per game ranking 20th while they shoot 48.9% from the field and 36.3% from the perimeter ranking fifth and 13th respectively.
Defensively, they allow 112.5 points per game ranking 10th. So far, their opponents shoot 46.8% from the field and 35.6% from the perimeter ranking eighth and 12th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Alex Caruso, SG (questionable —illness)
- Lonzo Ball, PG (OUT for season— left knee surgery)
- Javonte Green, SG (OUT indefinitely — right knee surgery)
- Justin Lewis, SF (downgraded to OUT Friday —knee)

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
It’s surprising the Bulls are as strong defensively as their fifth overall rank especially since neither DeRozan or LaVine are considered strong on that side of the floor.
Yet, ironically, the issue for this Bulls team seems to be their inability to win close games and perhaps that’s due to players committing defensively and not having as much energy on offense (or not having enough depth).
Oddsmakers are favoring the Bulls but I think the Wolves will still be fuming from the loss to the Celtics and therefore I’ll take the points and the upset.
