The Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves meet Friday in NBA action at the Target Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 113.6 points on 49.5 percent shooting and allowing 112.6 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Mikel Bridges is averaging 26.5 points and 3.3 assists, while Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 17.6 points and 3.9 rebounds. Cameron Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Nic Claxton is grabbing 9.1 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 38.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.9 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.2 rebounds per game.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 115.3 points on 49 percent shooting and allowing 115.6 points on 47 percent shooting. Anthony Edwards is averaging 24.7 points and 5.9 rebounds, while Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 20.8 points and 5.3 assists. Rudy Gobert is the third double-digit scorer and Jaden McDaniels is grabbing 3.9 rebounds. The Minnesota Timberwolves are shooting 35.9 percent from beyond the arc and 76.4 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Timberwolves are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.4 rebounds per game.

The Nets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games. The Timberwolves are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The under is 4-1 in Nets last 5 overall. The under is 6-1 in Timberwolves last 7 overall. The Nets are 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Minnesota and 9-27 ATS in the last 36 meetings.

I'm not running to the window to lay decent sized chalk with the Minnesota Timberwolves, but I can't get behind the Nets in their current form and with their injury situation. The Nets are without a lot of role players, and they have a lot of recent ugly losses. If the Timberwolves are serious about making some noise this postseason and fighting for the best seed, these are games they need to take advantage of. I'll lay the chalk.
