Atlanta has a very young team. In this NBA season it is the youngest team in terms of average age of players. This is one of the reasons of the teams’ multiple problems. Young people are good at attacking, but often forget about defense. The team leader Trae Young stands out of his teammates, gaining an average of 26.8 points per game.
The Hawks team in this match will immediately have five players absent, with B. Fernando and D. Hunter being under a question mark. Atlanta takes the last 15th place in the Eastern Conference, after 50 games this season. They have almost the same number of points with the two teams standing side by side, which means that thanks to one victory, Lloyd Pierce’s players can leave the last line, which they’ve been occupying for almost half of the season.
Minnesota is more focused on attack. There is always a lot of ball movement and open shots. In addition, on the road the Timberwolves are quite good and have already won five victories with only two defeats. Plus, the Wolves gain 115 points per game in average this season. The weak defense of Atlanta on average misses exactly the same 115 points.
Having obvious merits Timberwolves still cannot get out of the three outsiders of the Western Conference, which is really surprising this season. The team lost control of the situation, while losing to everyone.
Minnesota gave out one of the worst series of defeats in its history: the club doesn’t know the taste of victory for 12 matches in a row. The Wolves are just falling down and to be honest, it will be difficult for the management to keep the leaders in the offseason, as you can already forget about the play-offs.

Hawks vs Timberwolves Prediction
Speaking about the results of the game the Wolves have two psychological advantages: a home game factor and a will to break off a series of defeats. Atlanta has problems with their roster, so Timberwoves are already obliged to take points. Minnesota is still ahead of their opponents, plus playing in a Western conference is a bit more difficult.
We predict a win for Minnesota Timberwolves.
