The Minnesota Timberwolves will be fighting for their season against the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 6 at the Target Center on Friday.

The Memphis Grizzlies will be looking to book their tickets to the second round after outlasting the Timberwolves in a thrilling 111-109 win in Game 5 on Tuesday. Ja Morant led the team with a monster game of 30 points with 13 rebounds and nine assists, Desmond Bane added 25 points on nine of 20 shooting while Brandon Clarke provided the spark off the bench with 21 points, 15 rebounds and three assists. As a team, the Grizzlies shot just 41 percent from the field and seven of 28 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense and trailed for most of the game, before coming to life in the fourth quarter where they exploded for 37 points capped by the game-winning layup from Morant to move one way away from moving on. Dillon Brooks had a night to forget as he scored just eight points on three of 18 shooting from the field.

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Timberwolves now have their backs against the wall after dropping a game they shouldn’t have lost on Tuesday. Karl-Anthony Towns drained five 3-pointers to lead the team with 28 points and 12 rebounds, Anthony Edwards added 22 points while D’Angelo Russell chipped in with 12 points and eight assists. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 44 percent from the field and 14 of 33 from the 3-point line as they held the Grizzlies to just 21 points in the third quarter to build a 13-point lead, but they allowed the Grizzlies to get hot in the fourth quarter and got burned in the end as the Grizzlies’ Morant stole the game on a last-second layup.

Looking at the betting trends, the Grizzlies are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five road games, 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record and 35-17-1 ATS in their last 53 games overall. The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games, 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall.

Head to head, the under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall, the Grizzlies are 17-7 ATS in the last 24 meetings overall and the Grizzlies are 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings in Minnesota.

The Grizzlies will once again be without Steven Adams and Ziaire Williams, while the Timberwolves are coming into this one unchanged. The Grizzlies needed to respond after their tough loss in Game 4 and they did that with a thrilling win on Tuesday, so now all the pressure is on the Timberwolves who have already shown in this series that they crumble under pressure. The Timberwolves are a talented team, but their decision-making seems to be their downfall in every loss and I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon. I’m expecting another close game, but with the line so short, I’m happy to go with the more reliable Grizzlies to finish the job and move on.
