In the position when team lost seven matches in row, which is the worst run since begin, New York is in must - win situation tonight at Minnesota. It will not be easy, especially because home team has made few surprises, including victory over Los Angeles Clippers and Toronto. Despite some positives, Timberwolves are having another poor season, and for sure team is out from playoff once again. Mess in the Minnesota is quite big, mainly with center Pekovic signing big, long term contract, and now he is playing few minutes per game. Also, status of ex Euroleague MVP, Nemanja Bjelica is under question because it is not for sure how long he will remain in the club. Tonight he will not play because of feet injury. Wiggins, La Vine, Deng can have their playing day or not, but it is hard for them to contribute constantly. Towns at center position is doing good, but it is not enough for team to face any serious opponent.
New York should have light advantage, especially if Anthony and Porzigins made their role together on the court. With Afflalo as some kind of back -up, away team can make good enough to beat Minnesota tonight. With New York coach Fisher fired, interim solution Ramble, who leads team at the moment, could make some difference because he was at the bench of Minnesota in period of 2009 - 2011. New York won first match at Madison Square Garden 107 :102+
