Minnesota Timberwolves Team News
One of the most pleasant surprises this season in the NBA league is certainly the Minnesota team, which, along with the current champions Denver Nuggets, is the best team in the West. They have a record of 9-3, and they have not been defeated even once at home. What particularly adorns the Minnesota team is its defensive rating, where Rudy Gobert, who has finally caught the right rhythm this season, fills all the defensive deficiencies of KAT, who is an important factor for the Wolves in attack. In the matches against the Warriors, the Timberwolves showed their toughness, but also that they are ready to respond to both physical and psychological demands. They managed to beat the experienced Warriors both times as guests, who tried to get them nervous, which culminated in a fight between Green, Thompson, and McLaughlin. The Timberwolves are on a mini-tour and have played five games as guests, winning four of them. They play great at home, and they managed to defeat both the Nuggets and the Celtics as hosts.
The leader of the team is Anthony Edwards, who is growing into a real superstar and is the real leader of the team. Big help comes from KAT, who scored 29 points in the last match against the Pelicans and hit the shot for the win.

New York Knicks Team News
The Knicks continue to play well this season and have recorded six wins in the last 7 matches. They won the last two matches very smoothly and safely with great games from Brunson, who scored over 30 points in both matches and showed that he is in fantastic form. The Knicks are one of the best defensive teams in the league, just like the Timberwolves team, so we expect this match to be quite tough and for a small number of points.
Statistically speaking, the Knicks receive the fewest points of all teams in the league, while the Timberwolves are in fifth place. A very important factor in the Knicks game is the Randle-Barrett-Brunson trio, which is the driving force in the Knicks team’s attack. However, Knicks has very high-quality players coming off the bench, and the special x-factors are Grimes, Quickley, and DiVincenzo. It was DiVincenzo who was the key player in the victory against the Hornets where he scored 25 points.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs New York Knicks Prediction
This is a duel between two top defensive teams, and we believe that the defense will be the main asset of both teams, that is, which will have more width and maintain greater intensity in defense for a longer time. Brunson is in great shape and we believe that Conley will be in charge of him and will have the primary task of the defense to slow him down. Minnesota is playing great at home and we believe that there will be a victory and that the match will be less than the number of points.
