The Portland Trailblazers are in a very tough division and will need to pick up a win against the worst team in basketball the Minnesota Timberwolves, as the two teams meetup this Sunday at the Target center.
Unfortunately for Portland they did drop their last game against the Phoenix Suns, as they allowed the Suns to shoot well over 50% from deep in what has to be said, was not their best defensive performance. Damien Lillard remained solid in that game though, putting up 30 points on decent enough efficiency and he should be ready to go for a big performance here against one of the league’s worst defenses.
Ultimately this Trailblazers season was derailed a bit by the injury of CJ McCollum who has been injured for most of the season and without the one-two punch of one of the league’s best back-courts this team just has not been as good as they could have been.
The good news for the Trailblazers, is that McCollum has been cleared to practice and is very close to returning, so if the Trailblazers can make the playoffs they might be getting healthy at just the right time to make some magic happen in the postseason.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have been awful this year and it will be interesting to see if they can hold on to their star player Karl-Anthony Towns this off-season, as it would not surprise me if some kind of trade goes down.
The Timberwolves are coming into this game about as good as they can after picking up a rare win over the New Orleans Pelicans which ended up snapping the team’s 9 game losing streak which did not look like it was going to end in that game against the Pelicans as they were big underdogs.
It was not exactly fundamentally sound stuff from the Timberwolves which got them over the line last time out, but an inability for New Orleans to shoot the three ball, as they shot under 20 percent from deep in that game.

Free Portland Trailblazers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The Portland Trailblazers will be able to put up whatever numbers they want on the Timberwolves, as this Minnesota team will not have any chance of keeping the Trailblazers to under 20% shooting.
The Timberwolves on the other hand have been able to be awfully competitive in these shootout type games and I think that is exactly what we will see here, as I can see the Timberwolves feeding off of the energy the Trailblazers will bring into this contest.
I also think there is plenty of line value to be had in this one, as I was thoroughly expecting this number to come up in the low 240’s, so I do feel like this line is significantly off and will likely rise closer to tip-off.
