New Orleans Pelicans
Both of New Orleans’ bigs are in the top three for All-Star game votes among Western Conference front court players. That doesn’t mean they will start the All-Star game together, though. The NBA is trying the different format this season, where a captain from the West will pick a team against the Captain from the East, where they can take players from the other conferences
Cousins and Anthony Davis destroyed the Jazz in their last game. They don’t have to play another game in between Wednesday night’s win and this one on Saturday, a nice little break for the Pelicans.
Did you know Cousins is one of only four players to ever record a 20-point, 20-rebound, 10-assist and 5-block game? The other three are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Tim Duncan and Chris Webber. The Pelicans have won four out of their last six games and still have a hold on that eighth seed in the conference.
Minnesota is still on top of its division — and fourth in the conference — despite losing to Brooklyn the other night. We had the Nets on the moneyline at home and cash another underdog with that play.
Spencer Dinwiddie hit an extremely difficult fall-away jumper in the final seconds to give Brooklyn the win. Dinwiddie has been a story of his own in the league this season.
Minnesota has to go to Boston on Friday night before coming back home to play the Pelicans in this game.
Karl-Anthony Towns against Anthony Davis is going to be a treat. And Taj Gibson will keep DeMarcus Cousins busy, too. The Timberwolves are fairly well-suited to take on New Orleans’ duo underneath. It will be up to Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins to dominate the perimeter.

The Wolves will most likely be on a two-game losing streak coming into this game, so long as they don’t upset the Celtics in Boston on Friday night. Minnesota will be happy to be home and matches up well enough to win this game.
