The Timberwolves lost to the Boston Celtics 104-102 and then lost in double overtime to the Chicago Bulls on Friday.
They had trouble scoring, so they’ll have to be better in this game if they want to get back on track on the road.
The Timberwolves are currently in seventh place in the Western Conference. They are 12 games behind the Nuggets, who are in first place.
Also, in the last 10 games they have played, they are (4-6). On offense, they score 115.5 points per game and have made 49.1% of their shots from the floor. This is the third-highest shooting percentage for a team and the 12th most points scored per game.
On defense, the T-Wolves only let their opponents score 115.6 points per game, and their opponents have only shot 46.8% from the field. This is the eleventh lowest shooting percentage allowed and the eighteenth most points given up per game.
Will Rudy Gobert be playing in this game against the Raptors?
Gobert fouled out of Friday’s 139-131 loss to the Bulls in double overtime after scoring 21 points (8-14 FG, 5-9 FT), getting 19 rebounds, giving one assist, and blocking five shots in 33 minutes.
Gobert was listed as questionable for this game because of an ankle problem, but he was moving around really well. The game went into double overtime, but the big man was done after 33 minutes because he had fouled out.
The Timberwolves play again on Saturday against the Raptors, so fantasy managers will want to check the injury report to see if any players will be out for maintenance.
Naz Reid (Calf), Rudy Gobert (Ankle), and Austin Rivers (Back) are all questionable with injuries. Karl-Anthony Towns (calf) and Jaylen Nowell (knee) won’t be able to play.
The Raptors beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 128-111 in their last game. They looked great on offense, and they’ll need to keep it up in this game if they want to win at home.
At the moment, the Toronto Raptors are in ninth place in the Eastern Conference, 16 games behind the Milwaukee Bucks.
They’ve also won two games in a row and are 5-5 in their last 10 games. They average 112.8 points per game on offense and have shot 45.6% from the floor.
This is the 27th best team shooting percentage and the 23rd most points scored on average per game. Pascal Siakam is still the best offensive player, as he scores 24.2 points per game and makes 47.2% of his shots from the floor.
The Raptors are giving up 112.1 points per game on defense, and their opponents are shooting 49.2% from the floor. This is the sixth fewest points given up per game, but the 28th highest percentage of shots taken against them.
