The Timberwolves square off against the Pelicans in this Western Conference Showdown.
The Pelicans won the first two meetings of season series.
Karl-Anthony Towns has been a man on a mission recently. The talented big man has put up 4 straight impressive double doubles.
His strong run was capped off by a 31 point, 11 rebound performance against the Heat.
Facing Anthony Davis and Demarcus Cousins will be a tough test for Towns, but I think he will be able to put up huge numbers again.
Andrew Wiggins had a good shooting night against the Heat, but he has not produced for the Timberwolves in other areas of the stat line.
Ricky Rubio has been shooting the ball lights out recently, and it should lead to big things in this game.
Rubio scored 20 points and dished out 6 assists in the win. It was his fourth straight game with 20 or more points. Look for a fifth against Jrue Holliday and company.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans have not made the surge up the standings many expected after acquiring DeMarcus Cousins.
They were able to knock off the Rockets and James Harden friday night, and have won 3 of 4.
Anthony Davis scored 24 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in the win. The Timberwolves have talent in the front court but still have lapses on defense so a big game from Davis isn’t out of the question.
Cousins has seen his scoring go up and down since being acquired by the Pelicans, and it could be due to trying to get comfortable with his new teammates.
He scored 19 points and pulled down 9 rebounds against the Rockets. Look for Cousins to put up a 20 and 10 performance against the Twolves.
