Minnesota Timberwolves vs Denver Nuggets (By: Miyagi)
The Timberwolves are still struggling with injuries and they will miss Teague, Covington, Jones for another game while Rose is expected to make his return. Although I don't know if Rose has been affected by his recent minor injuries, sure thing is that his performances, his role on the team and his playing time have decreased ever since the Timberwolves appointed Saunders.
Towns have an easy matchup against the lazy, sloppy defender Jokic (although a great player overall) and one of the things that the Nuggets will have to worry about today is Towns ability to shoot from distance and the fact that Jokic has huge trouble sticking with his man in the perimeter.
Towns will be the go-to guy for the Pelicans today, he can easily get the job done against Jokic, at least offensively, and rebounding won't be an issue either as well as assisting since almost every offensive play goes through his hands as all playmakers are out for the Wolves. As long as he stays out of foul trouble, unlike his last game, he won't have a hard time covering this line.
