Golden State Warriors at Minnesota Timberwolves Odds Preview 03/11/18

- Karl-Anthony Towns helped Minnesota stop a season-longest three-game losing streak with 31 points and 16 rebounds, and the Timberwolves powered their way past Golden State down the stretch for a 109-103 victory on Sunday to hand the Warriors their second straight defeat without Stephen Curry. Towns had 14 points in the fourth quarter, including three big baskets over the final 2 1/2 minutes.

Despite the best efforts of Durant, who scored 39 points, 12 rebounds and four assists as well as fellow National Basketball Association all-star Klay Thompson, who boasted 21 points and five assists, the Warriors now lag further behind the Houston Rockets, who currently lead the Western Conference with a 52-14 regular season record. The last time these teams met, January 25th 2018, Golden State Warriors beat 126-113 (Durant: 10th career triple-double).

Kevin Durant may be the best player on the team but No. 30 is the leader, and it is evident.

The Golden State Warriors haven't been as dominant in the regular season as they've been in recent years with the Houston Rockets now atop of the Western Conference.

The Rockets were able to rest James Harden in a 105-82 thumping of the Mavericks.




The Raptors won their eighth in a row as Jonas Valanciunas scored 17 points and Kyle Lowry had 16 in a 132-106 rout of the Knicks. Just over half of the Warriors' games have finished over the total.

This season, the two top teams from the Eastern Conference are the Toronto Raptors and the Boston Celtics, representing quite the historical opposites. Based in Los Angeles.

The team's injury list has been growing in recent weeks as Iguodala and Bell have missed three straight games and West has missed four on the trot.

The 76ers rolled over the Nets, 120-97 as Joel Embiid furnished a team-high 21 points to lead a balanced attack.

Jeff Teague has averaged 20.2 points, 5.0 assists and 2.2 steals over the last five games for Minnesota. They then had a chance to go ahead for the first time since the third quarter following a Minnesota turnover, but Klay Thompson misfired on a 3-point attempt. The Bucks have signed him to a 10-day contract. Over the remainder of the year, numberFire's models project him to record 7.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.1 3-pointers per game.
