Game 5 of the first-round series between the eighth-place Minnesota Timberwolves and top-seeded Denver Nuggets tips off on Tuesday, April 25th.
Minnesota got into the series with a 114-108 overtime victory on Sunday but is in win-or-go-home mode as Denver can wrap up the series with a victory in this match.
At this time, the Timberwolves are 43-45 overall against the spread this season. Also, they are 22-22 ATS as the away team. At this time, the Nuggets are 47-38-1 against the spread this season. Also, they are 27-15-1 ATS as the home team
This season the clubs played on four occasions splitting those matches with Minnesota winning the initial meeting 124-111 on January 2nd and February 5th (128-98) while the Nuggets won on January 18th (122-118) and February 7th (146-112).
Additionally, the Nuggets hold the all-time record having bested the Wolves in 87 of their 141 meetings. Last season the squads played three times with Denver sweeping the season series.
This is just the second playoff series between the club, with the last meeting in 2004 when the Wolves won 4-1.
It took four games for the Wolves to make a mark in the postseason, albeit their collapse at the end of the fourth quarter put the game in jeopardy.
Fortunately, two of the younger Wolves put the team on their backs to pull out the win via a trio of 3-pointers, two by Nickeil Alexander-Walker while Anthony Edwards iced the win with his dagger shot.
Karl-Anthony Towns (17 points, 11 rebounds) and Rudy Gobert (14 points, 15 rebounds) registered double-doubles while Ant Man led the Wolves with 34 points.
Minnesota opponents score 115.8 points per game ranking 18th while the Wolves limit them to 47.1% from the field and 36.9% from deep ranking 11th and 24th respectively.
On offense, the Wolves score 115.8 points per game ranking 13th while shooting 49% from the field and 36.5% from the perimeter ranking third and 13th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Kyle Anderson SF (questionable —eye)
- Jaden McDaniels SF (OUT indefinitely —hand)
- Naz Reid, C (OUT indefinitely —wrist, scaphoid fracture)
If you’ve ever watched a cat play with a dead mouse batting it around it sort of feels like how the Nuggets have treated the Wolves.
Clearly, they didn’t arrive with their typical game focus on Sunday but with 2:36 remaining in the match they demonstrated why this series should be over.
Trailing 84-96 the Nuggets went on a 12-0 run and made the defensive stop to send the game into overtime. Apparently they were gassed because they held Minny to 16 fourth-quarter points but then allowed them to score 18 in the five-minute overtime period.
The loss wasted Nikola Jokic’s 43 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, and two steals effort although he’ll likely blame himself for the one missed free throw that would’ve won in regulation.
On the positive side, Denver possesses one of the two best offenses in the league highlighted by scoring 115.8 points per game ranking 12th. Denver is shooting the best field goal percentage of 50.4% as well as the fourth-best perimeter efficiency of 37.9%.
Denver allows opponents to score 112.5 points per game which ranks eighth while limiting foes to 47.8% from the field and 34.4% from deep ranking 20th and third respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Collin Gillespie PG (OUT—leg fracture)

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
If Jaden McDaniels and Naz Reid were healthy this series would’ve been more competitive but there are more issues in Minny starting with the ill-fitting Karl-Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert frontcourt.
It’s unfortunate fans won’t get to see more of Anthony Edwards this postseason but his star is skyrocketing to superstardom although it might be time for his front office to consider moving KAT and handing him the keys.
Denver got a necessary lesson not to take any team for granted and between that and head coach Michael Malone’s game prep they’ll be tuned in fully from the tip in Game 5 to take care of business.
