The San Antonio Spurs travel to the Target Center to battle the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night. Here's a Spurs vs Timberwolves prediction.

San Antonio Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs have been in terrible shape as they've now lost 14 in a row after getting routed by the Pelicans in a 121-106 road loss on Friday. Devin Vassell led the team with 14 points off the bench, Jeremy Sochan added 13 points while Zach Collins and Julian Champagne scored 12 points each. As a team, the Spurs shot 45 percent from the field and 16 of 39 from the 3-point line which was good enough to stay in the contest, but never truly threaten as the Pelicans outscored them in every quarter. A total of eight players finished in double figures in scoring which is a positive sign, but the Spurs were without Victor Wembanyama for this one.

San Antonio Spurs Player Facts

  • Victor Wembanyama ranks 3rd amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (2.7) this season.
  • Keldon Johnson ranks 7th amongst qualified Guards for rebounds per game (6.5) this season.

Minnesota Timberwolves

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been in red-hot form as they've won seven of their past eight games and they will be gunning for a fifth straight victory after sneaking past the Hornets in a 123-117 road win on Saturday. Karl-Anthony Towns led the team with 28 points, seven rebounds and five assists, Rudy Gobert added 26 points with 12 rebounds and three blocks on 10 of 12 shooting while Naz Reid chipped in with 23 points on nine of 14 shooting off the bench. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 51 percent from the field and 11 of 31 from the 3-point line as they got off to another quick start, but they actually trailed late in the fourth quarter before they closed the final 4:44 on a 21-11 run to keep their win streak alive.

Minnesota Timberwolves Player Facts

  • Karl-Anthony Towns is one of only two 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 2nd amongst qualified players for assist:turnover ratio (6.9) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Timberwolves rank 1st in the league for opponent points per game this season (105.9).
  • The Timberwolves rank 1st in the league for opponent field goal percentage this season (43.0%).
  • The Spurs rank 30th in the league for point differential per game this season (-12.5).
  • The Spurs rank 30th in the league for opponent steals per game this season (9.4).

Spurs vs Timberwolves

The Timberwolves could be shorthanded for this one with Anthony Edwards listed as questionable, but they are still the heavy favorites as they're one of the hottest teams in the league while the Spurs are one of the coldest teams. The line is quite hefty for this one, and the Timberwolves were far from convincing in their narrow over the Hornets, but I still think they get the big win at home against the slumping Spurs.
