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

The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 117.6 points on 48.1 percent shooting and allowing 117.5 points on 48.3 percent shooting. Trae Young is averaging 26.7 points and 3.1 rebounds, while Dejounte Murray is averaging 20.5 points and 5.4 rebounds. De’Andre Hunter is the third double-digit scorer, and Bogdan Bogdanovic is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 81.5 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Hawks are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.1 rebounds per game.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 115.9 points on 49.2 percent shooting and allowing 116.2 points on 47.2 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 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 76 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Timberwolves are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.5 rebounds per game.

The Hawks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Timberwolves are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The over is 4-1 in Hawks last 5 Wednesday games. The over is 5-1 in Timberwolves last 6 overall. The Hawks are 4-0-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Minnesota and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Atlanta Hawks have played decent ball over the last month, but they still have issues stringing wins together, and I don't trust them on the road yet or against above average teams. The Minnesota Timberwolves play their best ball at home where they win by an average of 1.2 points and there's reports Edwards and Towns could return for this contest. If that's the case, this will be the best roster the Timberwolves have played since KATs injury. I'll lay the reasonable number with the home team.
