This game features the Timberwolves traveling to Portland to face the Trailblazers.
Both teams are should finish outside of the playoff bubble due to a stacked Western Conference, but it should still be an entertaining game.
Karl-Anthony Towns is young, but he is clearly a generational type of talent. Averaging 24 points and nearly 13 rebounds per game it’s safe to say the Timberwolves should be a playoff contender for many years to come.
Towns has been extremely efficient on offense in the last 10 games, shooting under 50% just twice, and scoring over 30 points in five of the games.
This game he goes up against another talented young center in Nurkic, but expect Towns to have a huge game.
Andrew Wiggins would be the franchise star on any other young team looking to rebuild, but it is clear he will be the #2 option in Minnesota.
His scoring has been great all season long, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him reach 28 points per game at some point in his career.
Facing CJ McCollum he should be able to score at will and put up at least 25.
Ricky Rubio continues to be one of the best passers in the NBA, and should have a great stt line against Damian Lillard.
Portland has a half game lead over the Nuggets for the final playoff spot, and will need its talented young backcourt to get them in.
Damian Lillard is one of the best young guards in the league, and should produce big numbers against Ricky Rubio.
He struggled in the Trailblazers last game against the Jazz, shooting a very poor 5-20 from the field including 2-7 from behind the arc for 16 points.
CJ McCollum is a sharpshooter and will be hounded by Andrew Wiggins all night. If the talented shooter can get some open looks he should be able to put up 20 points on the night.
