If Minnesota is going to miraculously climb back into the Western Conference playoff race a win vs. the Knicks on Sunday is an absolute must. Right now the T’Wolves are 6.5 GB of the 8 seed with 16 games to play so, although slim, there’s still a chance.
The Knicks come into the Target Center on the 2nd leg of a back-to-back after losing to Kings at home on Saturday afternoon. It was New York’s 5th straight loss although they had been playing better as of late.
New York Knicks
New York is on 0 days rest ahead of Sunday’s game but they have covered in the last four in that spot. The Knicks are a deep (not necessarily talented, but deep) team so they can probably handle the back-to-back better than most.
In that case is the -11.5 points too much for Minnesota to give in this one? Only one of the Knicks last six losses have been by more than 11 points. Over that span they’ve also beaten San Antonio, Orlando, and Atlanta.
Dennis Smith, Jr. and Damyean Dotson did both log over 30 minutes on Saturday so the Knicks back court could be a bit stretched. In this case Derrick Rose could have a big game off the bench for the T’Wolves vs. his old squad.
The Knicks also had DeAndre Jordan on the court for 26 minutes Saturday vs. the Kings. NYK throws out a plethora of players at the C position that also includes Luke Kornet and Mitchell Robinson. Could that be the key to limiting Karl-Anthony Towns on Sunday?
The NY defense actually hasn’t played bad the last couple games, limiting Phoenix to 107 points and Sacramento 102. They’ve employed a more slow it down pace as the Knicks have scored just 96 and 94 points the last two. In that regard Sunday’s O/U might be a bit on the high side at 227.
These teams have met up just once so far this season and fairly recently too with Minnesota scoring a 115-104 win on February 22nd. Towns sat out that game for the T’Wolves however and is expected to play Sunday.
Minnesota isn’t doing a whole lot to solidify their postseason chances, going just 1-4 over the last five. Those four losses were all on the road however and the T’Wolves have been very solid at home lately.
The Wolves have won four straight at the Target Center with victories over Oklahoma City, Sacramento, Houston and the Clippers. Overall Minnesota has gone 21-10 at home this year.
Towns being in the lineup is going to be a huge difference maker for Minnesota. He has four 30 point games in his last 6 and has also grabbed 14+ rebounds in four of those outings.

Free New York Knicks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The Knicks are on a B2B but 11.5 is just a lot of points in an NBA game. The Knicks have lost 5 in a row, but they’ve looked a bit better in doing so. With the slow-it-down pace that New York has employed it’s going to be hard for Minnesota to build up that much of a huge lead.
