Memphis Grizzlies vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

The Minnesota Timberwolves are the far and away more talented team and at home where they've been fantastic, but they're also on the end of a back to back. The Timberwolves are also a young team that's still learning how to manage success, and they've allowed teams to hang around at times. The Memphis Grizzlies have the rest advantage, and they've been covering numbers despite throwing out G League and two-way players. Lots of points here. I'll take a shot with the Grizzlies and the boatload of points.
