Only two games left in the NBA regular season, and this Tuesday will see a Western Conference showdown as the Oklahoma City Thunder travel to Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves. These teams have been headed in opposite directions this year, but the T-Wolves took the last meeting, beating the Thunder 96-86 on January 13th.
The Thunder have been on a roll as the season comes to a close, winning three of their last four. They won a thriller on the road on Sunday, beating the Nuggets 106-105 in Denver. OKC is now locked into the 6th spot in the West.
The Timberwolves, on the other hand, have struggled mightily as of late. They have lost four straight and five of their last six. Minnesota lost an especially disappointing game to the Lakers on Sunday, falling 110-109 in Los Angeles.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Led by MVP front-runner Russel Westbrook, the Oklahoma City Thunder have looked like a team on a mission over the last few games. This will be the final game of a four-game road trip, and they will be looking to close their final road game of 2017 with a win.
Westbrook has put up historically ridiculous stats this year. He broke Oscar Robinson’s 55 year-old record on Sunday with his 42nd triple-double of the year. Considering the fact that they have already locked in the 6th seed in the West, it would not be surprising if the starters played fewer minutes in this final road game.
The Thunder score an average of 106.7 points per game which ranks 11th in the league. They lead the league in rebounding with 46.5 but rank 25th in assists with only 21 per contest. On the other end, Oklahoma City allows 105.9 points per game which ranks them 16th in scoring defense.
Russel Westbrook is putting up 31.9 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists this year. Victor Oladipo, Enes Kanter and Steven Adams also contribute with double-digits points, but it’s mostly the Westbrook Show.
The Timberwolves have suffered some difficult losses lately. They went 0-4 over their four-game road clip, which was fittingly closed with a buzzer-beating loss to the Lakers. It was not for lack of effort, as both Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins scored 40+ points in the loss.
This will be the final home game of the year for the T-Wolves, and one has to think that they will be giving their all to leave the fans with a win.
The Timberwolves rank 15th in scoring with 105.5 points per game. They rank 25th in rebounding with 42.4 and 10th in assists with 23.5 per contest. Minnesota ranks 18th in scoring defense, allowing 106.6 points per game.
Karl-Anthony Towns leads the way for the Wolves with 25.1 points and 12.2 rebounds per game. Andrew Wiggins adds 23.7 points, and Zach LaVine contributes 18.9 points a night.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The Thunder are obviously the better team, but I expect their key players to only play a few minutes, if at all. Oklahoma City is already locked into their playoff spot and have nothing to play for.

The Timberwolves, on the other hand, have to want this one badly in order to give the home crowd one final W.
