San Antonio Spurs vs. Minnesota Timberwolves News and Notes
The Spurs list three players on their injury report, and all have been ruled out for Sunday. Forward Drew Eubanks is under quarantine (COVID-19 protocols), while guards Derrick White and Quidanry Weatherspoon could be out for an extended period of time with toe injuries.
Guard Josh Okogie (hamstring) is the only Timberwolves player on the injury report. He will likely be a game-time decision.
The Spurs and Timberwolves will play the second leg of a back-to-back in Minnesota. San Antonio needed overtime to win yesterday’s matchup, and now they’ll try to make it two wins in two nights against the Timberwolves, who suffered their seventh consecutive defeat. The Timberwolves are last in defensive efficiency (1.147) and 26th in offensive efficiency (1.034). Tonight’s game will be their third game in four nights and their fourth game in six days. Yesterday’s loss was probably the closest Minnesota has come to winning a game on their losing streak, and the fact that they couldn’t get it done could demoralize them even more. This line looks short at the current number, with San Antonion a three-point favorite. The SportsGrid betting model sees value in backing the Spurs on the moneyline.
As for the total, this number at 233 appears a bit inflated given the combined 247 points score yesterday, which included overtime. Minnesota is ranked 26th in the league in offensive efficiency, and a correlated play makes sense if you like the underdog Timberwolves in this matchup.
