D’Angelo Russell scored 18 points, and No. 1 overall draft pick Anthony Edwards had 13 points in his third start for the Timberwolves.

Edwards is averaging 17.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in 30.0 minutes since being moved into the starting lineup on Jan. 29. C Naz Reid (right wrist sprain) returned after missing two games, scoring 12 points in 13 minutes off the bench. . C Karl-Anthony Towns (COVID-19) was inactive for the ninth straight game, and G Jarrett Culver (left ankle sprain) missed his third in a row. They have both been ruled out for tonight’s game. F Juancho Hernangomez was active for the first time since Jan. 13 but did not play.
The Spurs are coming off two straight ugly home losses to Memphis on Saturday and Monday. They lost the two games by a combined 48 points, while Keldon Johnson had 25 points of his own with 11 rebounds. Memphis held a 62-32 advantage in the paint despite being without crucial frontcourt players Jaren Jackson Jr., Jonas Valanciunas, and Justise Winslow. Because LaMarcus Aldridge would get pushed around by Brittany Griner, he had one rebound in the game. LaMarcus Aldridge would get boxed out by Nancy Pelosi. We may not see him tonight because he’s day to day with hurt feelings, but the Spurs do get Jakob Poetl in there. After scoring a season-low five points on 2-for-6 shooting Saturday, DeRozan was 6 for 12 in the rematch. I expect a bounce-back performance here but do you trust them as 8 point favorites?
Timberwolves vs Spurs Odds
|Where/When||AT&T Center, 8:30 PM ET|
Minnesota is the second-worst team in the NBA, with a 5-15 record on the season. The T-Wolves have lost 8 of their last eight games and have been outscored by 8.6 points per game in that stretch. Minnesota has a bottom-five offense, ranked 27th with 106.3 points per game, and a bottom-five defense ranked 25th, allowing 115.6 points per game. Consider they struggle to defend against most teams; it’s slightly surprising that their games have gone below the betting total in as many games as they have so far, with an 11-9 record to the ‘Under’ this season.
The Spurs sit in 10th place in the Western Conference with an 11-10 record. They have gone 5-5 in their last ten games, being outscored by their opponent by an average of 112.5 to 111.3 in that stretch.
