The T-Wolves escaped with a six-point win that became their sixth straight win. The loss was Golden State’s third in a row and dropped them to 6-5 on the season. The early season win streak has propelled Minnesota to third in the West and a half game back of a tie for first place. Tuesday’s also an In-Season Tournament game. Both teams started the tournament 1-0 with Minnesota beating San Antonio and Golden State defeating Oklahoma City.

Tip-off at Chase Center starts at 10 p.m. EST with the Warriors a 2.5-point favourite on home court and the total at 221 on the NBA odds.

Timberwolves vs. Warriors NBA Betting Odds

A season ago Golden State had the largest home-away split in the NBA, going 33-8 on home court and 11-30 on the road. So far 2023–24’s been the exact opposite as the Warriors have a lone win in four home games and already have nearly half of their entire road wins from last season. Minnesota’s gone 2-2 on the road so far this season.

The Timberwolves are 4-2 both outright and ATS in their last six games against the Warriors. But playing in Golden State’s been a much tougher challenge, with the Warriors winning 12 of their last 14 times hosting Minnesota. Golden State’s managed to cover in one of their last five games at home. The Warriors are also 2-6 ATS in their last eight November outings. 

Minnesota Timberwolves

Albeit on a poor shooting night, Minnesota’s offence remained to go through Anthony Edwards in Sunday’s victory. The 22-year-old guard finished with a team-high 33 points despite going 11 for 27 from the field and draining one of nine three-point attempts. Big man Karl-Anthony Towns posted his second straight double-double, and after that it was bench contributions that prevailed Minnesota.

Centre Naz Reid has stepped up offensively this season. He ranks third on Minnesota with over 13 points per game and contributed with 10 in Sunday’s win. Kyle Anderson shot a perfect four for four off the bench while Nickeil Alexander-Walker also hit double digits with 10 points while going two for three from the arc.

Golden State Warriors

If there’s something Golden State can build off, it’s that they finished strong Sunday and outscored the Timberwolves 37-27 in the final quarter. And to no surprise Steph Curry tried everything in his power to complete the comeback, scoring a game-high 38 points in a losing effort. After Curry, only Klay Thompson finished above 11 points for Golden State. 

Depth scoring’s been somewhat of a predictable issue for Golden State this season. Curry’s averaging his typical 30 points a night and Thompson’s still a solid secondary option, but after that the Warriors are lacking legit scoring threats. Jonathan Kuminga and Andrew Wiggins are all the only other Warriors averaging double digits this season but they combined for 16 points on five for 18 shooting from the field, which of course led to a defeat.
