The Timberwolves travel to New York to take on the Knicks for the second time in three days.
The Knicks won Wednesday’s game by a final score of 106-104.
Carmelo Anthony hit a shot with under three seconds left in the game to seal the game and give the Knicks a win that brought their record back to .500.
Karl Anthony Towns had the game of his life against the Knicks. He finished the game with 47 points and 15 rebounds in the loss. After the game Towns said “I missed a few free throws, missed a few shots, I need to do more to help this team win.”
You can tell if Minnesota doesn’t win he doesn’t care about individual stats, all he wants to do is win.
The thing still killing the Wolves is they seem to have a letdown in some point of every game. The wolves started out the game fast and had a lead going into the second quarter.
Yet they still found themselves down 99-82 with less then 8 minutes to play. The Wolves came roaring back and at one point tied the game with under a minute left in the game, but it wasn’t enough and the Knicks eventually won.
If the Timberwolves can find a way to put together four quarters they are a very good team, but it hasn’t seemed to happen yet.
It doesn’t help that this game is on the road. As bad as the Timberwolves have played they are even worse on the road posting a 2-7 record so far this season.
They also score about three points less, and give up two more points a game on the road so far this season. For the Wolves to pull this out they need four solid quarters without any letdown.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks had a solid game against the Wolves. Except for the letdown in the fourth quarter they were in control most of the game.
For as good as KAT looked for the Wolves, Porzingis looked equally as good for the Knicks. He had 29 points and 8 rebounds and a huge block on KAT in the third quarter.
If they both continue to progress like they have, this could be a budding rivalry between the two young stars.
The Knicks at the friendly confines of Madison Square Garden average 105 points per game and shoot 46 percent from the field. The thing the Knicks seem to have found so far this season that the Wolves haven’t is a bench.
They have the likes of Brandon Jennings coming off the bench, and he has proven to be a very good backup to Derrick Rose.
On the defensive end the Knicks give up 103.1 points per game at home and opponents shoot 45 percent from the field.
The Knicks have an impressive 7-3 record at home, so if they can start winning games on the road, they have the chance to be very good.

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
If you base it off Tuesdays game and the fact the Knicks are at home the signs point to the Knicks winning again. The Wolves and Karl Anthony Towns however are sick of losing. I think the rest of the supporting cast have a strong game for the Wolves and they pull the upset in New York.
