Brooklyn Nets vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

The Minnesota Timberwolves are capable of blowing the doors off here at home, and they should have a nasty taste in their mouth after last night's loss to the Bucks. However, the Timebrwolves are still a young team learning how to handle success, and they have allowed teas to hang around this season. The Nets nearly upset the Timberwolves a month ago. With the rest advantage, the value seems to be with the Nets and the free buckets.
