Minnesota Timberwolves vs Golden State Warriors (By: Miyagi)
Backing KAT today to do most of the scoring for the Wolves is very obvious, which is the only 'scary' thing here. However, I can't find anything discouraging here. The Warriors rank worst in the league in points allowed from Center position over the last 10 games and they will miss Cousins again today, which adds to their trouble.
Towns has been in great form for quite some time now, he averages a bit over 30 points out of 20 attempts per game in 7 games this month while he is shooting the ball with an incredible 49% from beyond the arc during that stretch(!) and the only sure thing is that if the Warriors play on him the same defense they played on Aldridge yesterday (he even scored a rare 3P), they will have a lot of trouble.
KAT scored 31P in his most recent meeting with the Warriors with an almost perfect 10-11 2P FG and 1-4 3P FG though this time the Wolves are without Rose, Teague, and Covington and as a result, Towns is having more freedom offensively and he should take the 20+ attempts he averages per game this month. Towns has the edge here and despite the fact that his line is a bit higher, at 27p, he should be able to cover.
