What to Know

The Minnesota Timberwolves are 9-3 against the Chicago Bulls since November of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Friday. Minnesota’s road trip will continue as they head to United Center at 8 p.m. ET to face off against Chicago. The Bulls will be strutting in after a victory while Minnesota will be stumbling in from a defeat.

The point spread favored Minnesota on Wednesday, but luck did not. They lost to the Sacramento Kings on the road by a decisive 132-119 margin. Point guard D’Angelo Russell put forth a good effort for the losing side as he shot 6-for-13 from downtown and finished with a double-double on 29 points and ten dimes.

Meanwhile, Chicago strolled past the Charlotte Hornets with points to spare on Wednesday, taking the game 121-109. The Bulls’ small forward DeMar DeRozan did his thing and had 36 points along with five boards. The matchup made it Deebo’s fourth in a row with at least 31 points.

Minnesota’s loss took them down to 29-26 while Chicago’s win pulled them up to 34-21. We’ll see if the Timberwolves can steal Chicago’s luck or if Chicago records another win instead.
