Wednesday will see an East vs. West showdown as the New York Knicks travel to Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves. Both teams are struggling as of late and come into this game on losing streaks.
The Knicks had an impressive start to 2016, but have had some troubles as of late. They have currently lost two in a row, including a 112-103 home loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday. They are currently in 8th place in the Eastern Conference.
Similarly, the Timberwolves enter this game on a two-game skid. They also lost their last one by a score of 112-103 at home on Monday. That loss was at the hands of the Utah Jazz. Minnesota is currently in 13th place in the West.
New York Knicks
The new-look Knicks looked very impressive to start the year, and they seemed like a sure-fire playoff team in the East. However, they have been up and down as of late, most recently down. They lost their last two, but had won three in a row before that.
New York is 17th in the league in scoring, averaging 103.3 points per game. They are tied for 9th in rebounding with 45.2 per contest and 14th in assists with 22 per game.
The Carmelo-Kristaps combination is really starting to develop well for the Knicks, even throughout the two-game skid. Melo leads the team in scoring with 22.7 points per game and adds 6.4 boards per game. Porzingis adds 20.9 points and 7.1 rebounds per contest.
New Knick point guard Derrick Rose contributes 16.8 points and 4.9 assists per game. The Knicks are 24th in scoring defense, allowing 106.6 points per game.
The Timberwolves had high expectations entering the year. To say they have underachieved would be an understatement. They have all the young talent a team could hope for, but they have yet to develop into a cohesive unit of pros.
With all the talent, they could definitely pull things together and compete in the West, but they haven’t shown signs of it thus far. They are only two spots from the bottom of the conference at this point.
Minnesota is in the middle of the road in most offensive categories. They rank 19th in scoring with 103.1 points per game. They rank 17th in assists with 21.5 per game but are 27th in rebounding, collecting only 41.9 boards per contest.
Andrew Wiggins leads the team with 22.9 points per game, and Zach LaVine contributes 19.9. Last year’s rookie of the year, Karl-Anthony Towns, has had a good year with 21.0 points and 9.5 rebounds per game. Point guard Ricky Rubio leads the team in assists with 6.4 but only adds 6.5 points per game.

Free New York Knicks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The T-Wolves have some advantages coming into this game, and it could go either way. Both teams have been slightly unpredictable, but the Knicks have been the more consistent of the two. Minnesota has struggled on defense, particularly in the post. This should work to the Knicks’ advantage enough for them to pull the upset.
