Trade deadline day finds the Minnesota Timberwolves facing the Milwaukee Bucks playing the first of two scheduled contests. Minnesota will host the second meeting on February 23rd.
Both teams last played on Tuesday with the Wolves losing to the Bulls 123-129 while the Bucks were defeated by the Suns 114-106.
Last season, the squads played twice with the Bucks winning both contests. In a rarity, the squads are tied for all-time wins versus each other with 33 a peace.
*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Wednesday, February 7th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Thursday, February 8th.
The top of the West is jam-packed with the Clippers only holding the first seed for a brief period as the OKC Thunder reclaimed that position but have an identical record to the Wolves and Nuggets.
Minnesota and Denver are in action tonight with the Thunder playing again on Saturday. The big question for all these squads is whether they’ll be active today to bolster their depth to finish the season.
Minnesota ranks 19th on offense (114.3) and first defensively (108.6) while they are a plus +5.7 net differential, ranking sixth overall.
The Wolves are riding the middle with a 25-25-1 record against the spread through 51 matches this season.
Timberwolves Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- Shake Milton, PG (questionable —acquired)
- Troy Brown, SF (questionable —acquired)
- Jaylen Clark, SF (OUT indefinitely—Achilles)
Doc Rivers hasn’t had an auspicious start to his head coaching reign in Milwaukee with one victory in five tries. Several of his players are nursing injuries, and the Bucks have the toughest schedule remaining in the association.
That won’t stop Jon Horst from trying to make some moves although he doesn’t have much to barter with. With the core signed and locked the players who could be on the bubble are Bobby Portis (who has a very economical salary and is beloved in Milwaukee) or Pat Connaughton.
Milwaukee’s key categories find them ranked third offensively (120.1), and 19th defensively (116.2) with a net differential of plus +3.9 which ranks tied for ninth overall.
Betting on the Bucks against the spread is a tricky proposition given their 19-32 record in that category.
Bucks Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG (probable — knee)
- Brook Lopez, C (upgraded to probable —personal)
- Jae Crowder, SF (probable — ankle)
- Damian Lillard, PG (questionable —ankle)
- Khris Middleton (downgraded to OUT —ankle)
- Cameron Payne, PG (probable —knee)

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Like any new coach, it will take time for Rivers to get his squad committed to his new offense but one thing that stands out is he’s relying on his vets over the youth. Through his five games MarJon Beauchamp and Andre Jackson Jr. have played less than a minute each.
As for the Wolves they’ve maintained the best defense in the NBA but have hit a bit of a rough patch lately. Oddly they beat the tougher teams (OKC, Dallas, Houston) but lost to the Spurs, Magic and Bulls.
This should come down to which team plays best on the end of the court where they are less efficient– the Wolves on offense and the Bucks on defense.
