The Minnesota Timberwolves will be on the road to take on the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday, January 11th.
The tip-off is set for 8:00 ET from Smoothie King Center.
Minnesota opened up as a 2.5 point favorite and that is now down to 2. The total has gone from 227.5 to 228.
The Timberwolves have been an up-and-down team this year, but it does seem like they are getting better at the right time. I am interested to see how they do as the year goes on.
This team has won four ball games in a row. If they are on their game on Tuesday, they should be able to make it a fifth in a row.
When it comes to the best teams in the Western Conference, I would not put this group in there. I still feel they have a lot of work to do before I can put them in the same breath as a team like the Jazz, Warriors, or Suns.
To me, these guys have to acquire another player on their roster to be in the level of the elite. What they have now is good, but it is not enough to win a title.
Minnesota beat the Houston Rockets on Sunday by a score of 141-123. They did just what they had to do against a team they were a lot better than.
Based on the number of points they scored, one can conclude that the offense was humming. Karl-Anthony Towns absolutely went off, as he scored 40 points and had 9 rebounds. Anthony Edwards also chipped in 19 points and 6 assists.
New Orleans Pelicans
Overall, the Pelicans not played all that well. I guess that does not really surprise me all that much.
New Orleans comes into this ball game with a record of 14-26, which puts them in 13th place in the Western Conference. Unless a lot of crazy things happen, they will likely stay right around that seeding for the whole year.
Of course, a major loss for this team has been Zion Williamson. It will be a good sign for him to just to play a little bit before the season concludes, but there is no guarantee of that.
This squad lost to the Toronto Raptors on Sunday by a score of 105-101. They will look to get back in the win column when they face off with this Solid Wolves team on Tuesday.
In their last game, I thought that the defense played pretty well, but the offense was just not good enough. It is hard to win games in the NBA when you score just over 100 points.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Analysis:
The Timberwolves have been playing some good ball as of late and they need to be able to keep that up on Tuesday.
If you are Minnesota, it would be a pretty bad look to drop this game. When you face off with teams such as New Orleans, you have got to take care of your business.
The Pelicans are a weird team to figure out. On some nights, they will show up and beat teams that are better than them and on other nights, they will lose to a bad team. You never know what to expect from them.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Timberwolves ATS
I feel that the Wolves will keep rolling in this game. They are the better team and I feel they will show that, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
For me, laying the 2 points with Minnesota is not too much. I just think that as the game goes on, they will be too much for a below average Pelicans team to handle.
