The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 101.3 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 117 points on 52.1 percent shooting. Anthony Edwards is averaging 31.7 points and 3.7 rebounds, while Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 16 points and 1.7 assists.

The Nuggets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Timberwolves are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games and 18-8 ATS in their last 26 Sunday games. The under is 12-4 in Nuggets last 16 overall. The under is 11-5-1 in Timberwolves last 17 home games. The Nuggets are 24-7-1 ATS in the last 32 meetings in Minnesota and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Minnesota Timberwolves just can't get all of their teammates rolling to finish a game. It feels like every game has been there for the Timberwolves, but nobody besides Edwards can raise their game to close things out. Also, the Denver Nuggets are getting anything and everything they want offensively in this series, shooting a healthy percentage from everywhere and having 6 double-digit scorers. I have no choice but to lay the small bucket with the Nuggets for the sweep.
