Last Monday, Minnesota didn’t have too much breathing room in their matchup against the Trail Blazers, but they still walked away with a 119-114 victory.

Among those leading the charge was Rudy Gobert, who dropped a double-double on 25 points and 16 rebounds. He is on a roll when it comes to blocks, as he’s now posted two or more in the last seven games he’s played.

Meanwhile, the oddsmakers set the bar high, but the Pacers and the Mavericks didn’t disappoint and broke past the 247.5 point over/under on Tuesday. Indiana strolled past the Mavericks with points to spare, taking the game 137-120. Winning is a bit easier when you work as a team to rack up 11 more assists than your opponent, as the Pacers did.

Minnesota’s victory bumped their record up to 43-19. As for Indiana, their win bumped their record up to 35-28.

Thursday’s contest is shaping up to be a masterclass in shooting: The Timberwolves just can’t miss this season, having made 48.8% of their shots per game.

Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

The Timberwolves are hoping to beat the odds on Thursday, as the experts think they’re headed for a loss. They might be worth a quick bet since they’ve covered the spread the last four times they’ve played Indiana.
