The New York Knicks have been awfully good this season and they get an awesome opportunity to continue to move up the Eastern Conference standings, as they take on the worst team in the NBA in the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks did not really show up in their last game, as they dropped a disappointing game to the Miami Heat by a score of 98-108. I can certainly see why that happened as well, as they were coming off of a monumental win for this team as they were able to beat the Milwaukee Bucks the game before that, so it is not surprising that they did not show up with their best in the classic ”let-down spot”.
The guy who has not been letting the Knicks down though, is Julius Randle who once again led the team in points in that last game despite the loss, and has really been the main catalyst to the success the Knicks have found here in 2021.
Still, even though this stat has been around for awhile now, it is truly shocking that the New York Knicks are playing the NBA’s best defense only allowing 105 points per game and although not many people think this team can make any noise in the playoffs the old saying ”defense wins championships” did not come about for no reason.
The Timberwolves have been bad this year, but they do seem to be a bit more competitive now that they have Karl Anthony Towns back and putting in his normal 30+ minutes per night. Minnesota is coming off of a loss though, as they dropped their last matchup with the Nets by only 5 points which at least was good enough for the bettors as Minnesota was +10.5 against the spread.
Towns had 31 points 12 rebounds and 5 assists in that duel with Harden and the Nets and it now will be interesting to see if he actually sticks around in Minnesota, as it seems like his name gets brought up every off-season as a potential candidate to be traded.
Towns is very much available and ready for this game which means the Timberwolves should be very competitive with the Knicks, as this very well could come down to a battle between both team’s big men as Randle and Towns go to work this Wednesday evening.

Free New York Knicks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The Knicks are only laying 3.5 points in this spot and I am willing to forgive them for their last defeat in the belief that they will show up with their A-game and take care of business against a team like Minnesota who should not be able to beat this version of the Knicks despite being at home.
The Knicks also seem so much more deeper than the Timberwolves with other guys on the Knicks doing good work like RJ Barrett who has been awesome as of late.
