Warriors, Timberwolves Put Winning Streaks on the Line at Oracle

UPDATE: Warriors forward Kevin Durant has been ruled out for tonight's game with a left thigh contusion.

We all knew it was bound to happen, and the Golden State Warriors defense has begun to round into form after enduring a slow start to the season. Following a strong showing against the Miami Heat, the Dubs will look to keep the momentum rolling at home vs the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.

MyBookie opened the T-wolves as 10.5-point road underdogs with a total of 229.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Timberwolves are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games against the Warriors.
  • The Warriors are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • The Timberwolves are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games after consecutive wins.

Golden State held Miami to only 36.1 percent shooting while forcing 23 turnovers in a 97-80 victory on Monday. The Timberwolves pose a major challenge to that defense after averaging 114.4 points during a five-game winning streak. Five scorers on Minny are averaging in double figures, led by Karl-Anthony Towns’ 21.8 points. The streak is the Wolves’ longest since 2009.

Draymond Green has spent his time trolling LeBron James on social media and flat-out dominating on the floor in recent weeks. The Michigan State product is 23 of 34 from the field during his team’s four-game winning streak and scored at least 15 points in each of the four contests.

Golden State took three of the four meetings last season, with the lone setback coming at Minnesota on March 10. Throughout the years, the Wolves are a brutal 3-17 SU in their previous 20 vs the Warriors.
