Timberwolves Big Favorites with Pacers Coming to Town
— Minnesota Sports Fan (@realmnsportsfan) October 24, 2017
It’s weird seeing the Timberwolves on the good side of an 11 point spread but that’s what we are looking at for Tuesday night’s game vs the Pacers, according to ESPN. The Pacers traded Paul George to the team that we beat at the buzzer on Sunday, the OKC Thunder, and Indiana is a shell of the above average team they were last year.
The Pacers won their first game of the year in Brooklyn, where they scored 140 points. That has inflated their season average but they’ve lost both games since and the scores have been much more reasonable.
The newcomers are looking more and more comfortable with every game. Teague looked much better vs OKC, than he did in the two games prior. I’m still waiting for Jimmy Butler to put his stamp on his new team. I’m a little surprised that I’m still waiting but he will get comfortable, I’m sure.
Andrew Wiggins is off to a hot start and will try to continue that. Look for him to get started early, just like he has in previous games. Karl will be steady on the offensive end and on the glass. Can he be better on defense? The Wolves will need him to be as this season goes on.
I think the Wolves win but I don’t think they clear the 11 points.
