Timberwolves vs Nuggets prediction

The Nuggets winning this in blowout fashion would surprise nobody. However, the Timberwolves beat the Nuggets back in November and took the Nuggets to a one possession game about a week ago. The key in this game are the injuries, as the Timberwolves are still without Towns and Edwards and Gobert are questionable. The Nuggets have a questionable Murray. Check the injury report before betting. With the Timberwolves competing with the Nuggets for the top seed in the West, I'm going to assume the guys who can play will play. Should be one of the better games on the NBA card. Give me the Timberwolves and the points.
