Wizards vs Timberwolves prediction

The Timberwolves have the ability to blow the doors off at home, where they're 28-10 SU. The Timberwolves are also fighting for the top seed in the West, so the motivation is there. The Wizards are losing, not covering numbers, and they could be down Kuzma on top of other inures. With all that said, the Timberwolves play in Denver tomorrow and that's not only the toughest game on the end of a back to back, but it could decide who gets the first seed. This should be a win and get out situation, giving the starters as much rest as possible. Ton of points. Give me the Wizards and the boatload of points.
