Nobody has been riding the Minnesota Timberwolves bandwagon more than me this season, as I mentioned from the start how high I was on this team and how they should finally make a playoff push. Here we are, where they're now favored against title contenders. However, I'm not ready to back the Timberwolves in these favorite spots just yet. As banged up as the Nets are, they're still finding ways to win and Harden is starting to get more and more comfortable. We could easily see the Nets score a ton here and steal it in the fourth quarter. Give me the road dog.
