Key Points to Consider
High Performer: The Wolves have been using Andrew Wiggins in more of a ball distribution/playmaker role this year, and it’s clearly paying dividends for his production. He’s averaging career highs across the board with 25.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game. The added emphasis on using his as a playmaker in pick-and-roll settings have helped him and the team this season, especially with Jeff Teague’s absence.
Momentum: San Antonio heads into Wednesday night’s matchup having lost nine of their last 10 overall. They came up short, 114-104, Monday vs the Los Angeles Lakers. LaMarcus Aldridge finished with a team-high 30 points while DeMar DeRozan added 24. In that 10-game stretch, the Spurs are allowing opponents to put up 119.3 points per 100 possessions, second-worst in the league for that span.
ATS: Minnesota is just 3-7-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 11 games (going back to last season) after giving up 100+ points in the previous game.
For Minnesota, Karl-Anthony Towns is projected to finish with 27 points on 56% shooting, 13 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1-to-2 blocks.
