Hawks vs Timberwolves prediction

The Hawks have nothing to play for as they're locked into the 10th seed, so I wouldn't be surprised if they sit their key players. The Timberwolves are 29-10 SU at home, and they're still fighting for a top seed in the west. The Hawks have won 7 of the last 10 games against the Timberwolves, but this isn't a great spot for them, given they have nothing to play for at this stage. Big line, but I'm expecting guys for the Hawks to sit out. Give me the Timberwolves in a comfortable home win.
