The Spurs have had a very mediocre start to the year at 5-5 on the season. That includes two losses in a row and a good chance to make that 3 straight going to Minnesota as +2 road underdogs.
Minnesota has won 2 of 3 and was just a last second shot from the Nuggets away from making that 3 straight. The Timberwolves are only .500 at the Target Center this season, but should have an edge on Wednesday after a much-needed night off Tuesday.
San Antonio Spurs
San Antonio has 4 of their last 5 overall, and 4 of those games were at home. Sure there were a couple good teams mixed in there with defeats to Boston and the Lakers, but the Spurs also lost to Atlanta and Memphis.
San Antonio’s one win since November was a 121-112 win at home vs. Oklahoma City as -5 point favorites. It was a retro style game from Lamarcus Aldridge that fueled that victory as the big man notched 38 points.
The Spurs shouldn’t expect much from Aldridge on Wednesday, mostly because he’s up against Karl-Anthony Towns. Since that 39 point outburst last Thursday, Aldridge has just 21 points total over the weekend.
The big downfall about San Antonio lately is their defense which was at its worst in a 115-135 loss to Boston on Saturday. Jaylen Brown scored 30 for the C’s in that game which bodes well for the T’Wolves Andrew Wiggins.
Wednesday’s total is 227.5 which may seem high but Minnesota likes to push the pace with the most possessions per game in the league. The Spurs have fallen all the way to 20th in defensive efficiency on the year.
Minnesota should be able to go down low to Karl-Anthony Towns early and often in Wednesday’s game. The KAT man has been virtually unstoppable on the blocks, averaging 25.1 points and 12.2 rebounds on the year.
Towns has 25+ in 3 of 4 since returning from his suspension for fighting Joel Embiid. Minnesota had a back-to-back on Sunday and Monday, but Towns had Tuesday off and only played 30 minutes in the back half vs. Detroit.
It may not be Towns that the Spurs have to contend with as Andrew Wiggins is on a roll for the ‘Wolves. The wing man is FINALLY playing like a former #1 pick going for 30+ points in 3 of the last 4. That’s a great inside-out combo.
Minnesota played a lot of ball over the weekend but they could be getting some reinforcements back on Wednesday. Shabazz Napier (hamstring), Jordan Bell (shoulder) and Jeff Teague (illness) have all been upgraded to questionable on the injury report.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The old narrative was that the Spurs always got into low scoring games but they seem to have changed their ways a bit in terms of pace and defensive efficiency. Aldridge has looked very ‘past his prime’ which isn’t good in a matchup with KAT.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Timberwolves -2
A wager on the Spurs is a bet on name only. Minnesota looks like they are getting healthier and the Spurs have lost 3 of 4 at home, let alone in a tough road tilt here.
