The Minnesota Timberwolves visit the FedEx Forum and the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday evening in the first game back from the All-Star break for both teams.
The young Timberwolves have their eye on developing their prospects in the second half, while the Grizzlies will be looking for answers as they play without their star center.
An injury will likely keep Marc Gasol out for the rest of the season, leaving the Grizzlies in search of a steady replacement as they are firmly in the playoff hunt.
They’ve compiled a 19-9 record at home, while the Timberwolves have gone 8-18 when playing on the road.
The Timberwolves are likely sporting the NBA’s Rookie of the Year, as No. 1 overall pick Karl-Anthony Towns has posted 17.1 points per game, 10.1 rebounds per game, and 1.8 blocks per game.
He helped the team win three of their final four games leading into the break.
The Timberwolves came back from 18 points down to upset the Toronto Raptors 117-112 in their final game before the break. Towns put up 35 points and 11 rebounds to go along with three blocks and an assist, while Andrew Wiggins had 26 points.
Each former No. 1 overall pick got to the free throw line 13 times in the game.
In their first game without Gasol, the Grizzlies fared quite well against the lowly Brooklyn Nets, winning in a walk by a final score of 109-90, outscoring the Nets by a combined 31 points in the second and third quarters.
Mike Conley led Memphis with 20 points, while Jeff Green put up 18 off the bench.
Both players knocked down a trip of deep balls, as the Grizzlies shot 9 of 20 from beyond the arc.
As a team, Memphis shot 52.3 percent from the field in the game.

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
In their final five games leading into the break, the Timberwolves scored an average of 110.8 points per game.
The Grizzlies have the reputation as a defensive juggernaut, but that just hasn’t been the case this season, and Gasol’s absence will only hurt them in that regard.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: OVER
The Grizzlies averaged 106.1 points per game in their final 10 contests leading into the break, as they continue to play at a faster pace than they have in recent years, leading to an increased scoring rate, and that figures to continue against an absent Minnesota offense.
