Minnesota Timberwolves vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

The Minnesota Timberwolves are obviously capable of blowing the doors off in this game, but this is a letdown spot after they beat the Clippers and Bucks, and they're on the end of a back to back. The Portland Trail Blazers play their best ball at home, where 9 of their 15 wins this season have come, and they've covered 6 of their last 10 games. The Trail Blazers have been sneaky competitive these last few weeks. Again, let down spot for a young Timberwolves team still trying to learn how to handle success. Give me the points.
