(4-3) Minnesota Timberwolves vs. New Orleans Pelicans (3-4)
It’s a big Wednesday night of basketball across the NBA.
One of those games is a huge Western conference showdown that features three of the best big men in the league. The Minnesota Timberwolves make the trip to the Smoothie King Center to take on the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Pelicans won all three games played between the two teams last year.
The Minnesota Timberwolves will look to stay above the .500 mark in this one, but they are going to have their hands full.
The Timberwolves were supposed to be a better team this year on the defensive side of the court, but so far that hasn’t been the case.
Coming into this game they are allowing opposing teams to put up 115 points per game and shoot 51.9 percent from the field.
But on the bright since Jimmy Butler came back from his sickness the Timberwolves have found a way to make winning plays down the stretch of games, something they haven’t been very good at in years past.
To win this game the defense is going to need to step up, especially inside. They can’t let Boogie Cousins and Anthony Davis have their way, or it will be a long night of basketball.
New Orleans Pelicans
On the other side of this match up is the New Orleans Pelicans who have played decent so far this year, and come into this game with a 3-3 record.
They are still playing very inconsistently though, something they have had trouble with the last couple of years and it has cost them.
They had won two games in a row including one over the Cleveland Cavaliers, but in their last game Anthony Davis had no help on the offensive side, and that led to them only putting up 99 points and losing to the Orlando Magic.
The strength of this team is obviously inside for the Pelicans with the duo of Anthony Davis and Boogie Cousins.
They are a mismatch night in and night for opposing teams, and the Pelicans are going to need them to have games in this one.
That is where this team has the advantage, and if they want to win this game, that is going to have to be the reason why.
