A Western Conference showdown featuring the Timberwolves traveling to Memphis to face the Grizzlies.
The Timberwolves are 2-2 in their last 4 games, while the Grizzlies have won 3 of 4.
The teams have split the season series so far this year, so this third matchup while be a pivotal.
With a new coaching staff in place, the Timberwolves have started slow to start the season.
Second year big man Karl Anthony Townes has been as good as advertised. He is averaging 22 points and 9 rebounds in the early part of the season.
He goes up against a good Memphis front line with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph defending him, but I expect big numbers from the dynamic center.
In the last game against the Grizzlies, he finished with 11 points and 11 rebounds on only 4-10 shooting. His field goal attempts have increased substantially since that game and he will get plenty of touches in the paint.
Andrew Wiggins has been one of the top scorers in the league this season, averaging 27 points per game.
He is scoring at an efficient clip, shooting 49% from the field and over 50% from the behind the 3 point line.
He is also one of the best defenders in the league, and will go up against a good Memphis perimeter defense. Expect for him to continue his hot scoring streak, and finish with over 30 points in this contest.
Playmaking point guard Ricky Rubio has been one of the best playmakers in the league this season. While his scoring is down he is still averaging 7 assists per game.
He faces off against Mike Conley, who is one of the most underrated point guards in the league, so the matchup should be a good one.
Marc Gasol continues to be one of the best centers in the league. The talented big man is averaging 19 points and 6 rebounds this season.
He faces another talented big man in Karl Anthony Townes, and the matchup should be a good one.
In the October 26th matchup against the Timberwolves he had 18 points but only 3 boards. If he can’t help the Grizzlies control the glass it will be a long day for the defense.
Mike Conley has been very good at the start of the season for the Grizzlies. He is averaging just under 20 points (19.8) per game, to go along with 6.5 assists. Ricky Rubio is not known for his defense. So look for Conley to hit his season averages in this contest.
Although he is coming off the bench, Zach Randolph is still one of the best low post players in the league.
He is averaging 14 points and 8 rebounds on the year, and in the last game against the Clippers he had 18 points and 7 rebounds. He will provide a spark off the bench, to go along with his leadership for the younger players on the team.
The Memphis defense has struggled the last 4 games, giving up 100 points in each contest.
Facing two of the best scorers in the league I expect it to be a 5th straight game giving up 100 points.
