Minnesota easily has the worst record in the NBA and it started the season 2–0!
Since then, it has not won two in a row, not even close, and has three losing streaks of at least four games. A loss in this game would make it four.
Jarrett Culver and D’Angelo Russell have both been out and will remain out for the foreseeable future, though Culver will be evaluated next week.
Malik Beasley is establishing himself as a high-volume scorer, albeit on a terrible team, this season, however. His 20.7 points per game with the Timberwolves in 14 games last season was no fluke.
That’s because he comes into this game with the exact same scoring average in 30 games with the T’Wolves thus far in 2020/21.
His effective field goal has actually gone up just slightly in his higher scoring season. And this is only his fifth NBA season, after all. He’s also pulled his career three-point percentage up to 39.
New York Knicks
New York will be on alert. Its defense continues to be terrific this season but it’s hard to win games in the NBA these days failing to break 90, which is what the Knicks did on Wednesday.
They lost, 107–89, to the Magic. Julius Randle went 11-for-19 but he turned it over five times, too. The Knicks shot just 7-for-27 from outside. Immanuel Quickley missed all four of his threes and went 1-for-12 from the field overall.
Sunday will be Obi Toppin’s 20th NBA game. He has hit double-figures just twice in what has been a slow start to his career. He isn’t shooting it well from the outside and ten turnovers to eight assists isn’t going to get it done, either.
But the Knicks continue to not be horrible. The loss to Orlando hurt but they are still holding on to that seventh seed in the Eastern Conference.

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction: the Knicks.
Like has been said above, the Knicks continue to not be horrible. They should keep that up in this game against an opponent that truly is.
This number is a bargain. It feels like a square play but square plays can still be winners. New York gets to 100 and wins at home.
