The Minnesota Timberwolves travel to the FedExForum to battle the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night. Here’s a Timberwolves vs Grizzlies Prediction.

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves have been in red-hot form with 10 wins in their last 12 games, but they are looking to bounce back in this one after having their three-game win streak halted by the Kings in a 124-111 loss on Friday. Anthony Edwards led the team with 35 points, seven rebounds and five assists, Karl-Anthony Towns added 27 points with 11 rebounds and four assists while Rudy Gobert chipped in with 12 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 43 percent from the field and 12 of 33 from the 3-point line as they tried their best to keep it within striking distance after allowing 70 points in the first half, only to go cold and score just 15 points in the third quarter to allow the Kings to pull away.

Minnesota Timberwolves Player Facts

  • Karl-Anthony Towns is one of only three qualified players in the league shooting at least 50% from the field, 40% from three and 90% from the free-throw line this season.
  • Mike Conley ranks 3rd amongst qualified players for assist:turnover ratio (6.9) this season.

Memphis Grizzlies

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies have been in a slump as they've lost six of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to snap a three-game slide after getting scorched by the Suns in a 110-89 loss on Friday. Santi Aldama led the team with 21 points, Derrick Rose provided the spark off the bench with 17 points on eight of nine shooting, while Jaren Jackson Jr. chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 46 percent from the field and nine of 33 from the 3-point line, but they fell behind by 13 points at halftime and just didn't give themselves a chance after scoring just 16 points in the fourth quarter.

  • The Timberwolves rank 1st in the league for H2 opponent points per game this season (50.6).

Peter's Pick

The Timberwolves have quietly been one of the hottest teams in the league, but they will be eager to get back in the win column after after getting blown out in their last game. The Grizzlies have been a mess all season, they're still missing a long list of players and they've lost all seven of their home games this season. The Timberwolves open as favorites in this one, but I think they're being a little undervalued by the bookies in this spot given, especially given how poor the Grizzlies have been this season. Give me the Timberwolves to bounce back with a win and cover on the road in this one.
