It seems a but weird to see the Spurs where they are right now. They are not going to challenge for the top spot in the West or even in their own division.
They don’t even has as good a record as Minnesota. Are these signs of decline, patience or something else altogether.
Minnesota would certainly show something if they can win on the road in this spot.
They might not be the Spurs of championship vintage but road wins matter.
The Timberwolves are not the same team without Jimmy Butler in the lineup but they are still pretty good. They have won their last two, home to Golden State and at Washington.
Not having Butlers puts pressure on their other stars, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. Towns was a monster in their last game with 37 points and 10 boards. He is capable of dominating in this one too.
All season long Wiggins’ numbers have been down. He has seen a bit of a bump with Butler out of the lineup averaging much closer to his 23ppg from a year ago. They are going to need him here and there is no Kawhi so he should be good.
Minnesota has been able to survive because they options for that third scorer, sometimes Taj Gbson, sometimes Jeff Teague and sometimes Jamal Crawford off the bench.
Even though Teague has been alright this season we are seeing more run for Tyus Jones, who makes Minnesota a better defensive team when he is on the floor.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs are fascinating this season. The numbers say this team is the best defensive team but they are having a hard time scoring. That is certainly not what we are used to seeing.
Plus throw in the Kawhi Leonard stuff and how hurt or ready he really is and this team is more interesting than normal. They are still pretty good.
Lamarcus Aldridge is one of the best scorers at his size in the league. Amidst some changing of the guard he has his numbers back to where they were in his Portland days and is simply a reliable source of buckets. Those around him are much less so which is why this group struggles at times.
Dejounte Murray is the future PG of the Spurs and that future is now. He is far from a master of efficiency but he has definitely contributed to making the Spurs a strong defensive team and he is able to get to the rim really easily. Next he has to master decision making and long distance shooting.

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
No line yet but I think the Spurs will be favoured at home. Though it might not be by much.
A fully healthy Minnesota squad is really not a good match for the Spurs as Wiggins and Butler would need attention and possibly no Kawhi.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Wolves +5
I am going to go with the visitors here. Leonard might play but I still like Minnesota to win.
