Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Minnesota Timberwolves vs Golden State Warriors
The Warriors are on a six-game winning streak they are coming off a win against the Pelicans. They will take on the Timberwolves who are coming off a close victory against the Jazz. Game tips off at 10:30 PM ET.
Minnesota Timberwolves 's Latest Performance :
The Wolves are coming off an impressive win against the Jazz as Derrick Rose dropped a career-high 50 points on them. The Jazz was the team that released him after a day of signing so Rose was playing with a chip on his shoulder. It was great to see Rose having such a great game after seeing him dealing with injuries after injuries. The scoring was definitely needed against the Jazz as Bulter wasn’t playing tonight. It will be interesting to see how he follows up a performance like that because tonight he reminded me of the Derrick Rose of old who was fearless attacking the rim. He will have the opportunity to go up against Curry so that is the matchup that you would not want to miss. Karl-Anthony Towns racked up 28 points (9-of-17 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs), four 3-pointers, 16 rebounds, four assists in a winning effort against Jazz. Towns is off to a slow start but it is just a matter of time we will see him posting big numbers again with Bulter being on the bench the scoring load will have to come to Towns.
Golden State Warriors's Latest Performance :
The Warriors keep the ball rolling as they took down the Pelicans. The Warriors are playing with ease to start the season everything seems to be clicking for them at the moment and it doesn’t look like they are going to slow down any time soon. Stephen Curry scored a game-high 37 points on 12-of-20 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs. He is on a shooting tear, it is his 6th game with 30 points or more and we have only played 9 games so far this season talking about a hot streak. He is averaging 32.5 points per game on 54.3% shooting, 6.0 triples. Draymond Green chipped in 16 points, 15 rebounds. The Warriors are a team that has developed a working system that anyone can come in an contribute they have built a foundation so strong that it will last for many years to come. It will be interesting to see how Curry plays going up against Rose after he dropped a career-high 50 points.
