minnesota timberwolves 112 vs denver nuggets 146
The injury riddled Nuggets prepare to face the Timberwolves in the second game of their two game mini-series, with the Timberwolves having won the first matchup 128-98.
The Nuggets have been sensational all year. They are 37-17, the first seed in the West, and have the third best odds to win the NBA title, +800 on Fanduel. Their only issue is injuries as they had to play their last game without four of their starters. If Denver is healthy, especially MVP favorite Nikola Jokic, who is averaging a triple double with 24.8 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 10.1 assists per game, they are a force to be reckoned with.
The Timberwolves come into Tuesday with a 29-27 record, winning seven out of their last ten games. Minnesota had a really solid month of January, going 11-5, and have gone 2-1 so far this month. Anthony Edwards, the number one pick in the 2020 draft, is having the best season of his young career. Edwards is averaging 24.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game.
