Minnesota Timberwolves is a team with high potential, but at the same time it has been spending the second year in a row not the best season, to say the least.
Minnesota is more successful this season than the previous one. Ryan Saunders’ wards have learned to play away and now win not only at home. But lately the wolves have been playing without an injured Jeff Teague and this is not the best effect on their performance. For example, in recent games they lost to Milwaukee Bucks (106-134) and Memphis (121-137), and also barely beat Golden State (125-119).
Denver Nuggets after the successful last season were sharply among the candidates for the championship, as the team really shows a very good level of play. As before, the main advantage of Mike Malone’s wards is defense. “Nuggets are among the top ten defensive teams in the league, which is certainly not as good as the permanent top five, but still quite good. At the same time, the team attack is also very effective, and the most interesting thing is that it is based on very simple combinations that start with one or two screens.
After two defeats, Denver started playing more successfully. In recent games Nuggets defeated Orlando (91-87), Miami (109-89) and Philadelphia (100-97). Thanks to these victories, Michael Malone’s wards have strengthened their position in the second line of the Western Conference. There are no injuries on this team, which means we’ll see the optimal Nuggets lineup at Pepsi Center.

Timberwolves vs Nuggets Prediction
It’s hard to identify a clear favorite, in aspen, because Denver will enter the game without three starting lineup players. Denver has a deeper line-up, so the wolves will have a hard time with this team. Since Minnesota has not been playing well lately, we believe the hosts will win.
In favor of Denver argues the games on his home court and the support of loyal fans, as well as tournament motivation – the fight for the first place in the Western Conference in the heat. When else to take points, if not in the game with a lossless outsider?!
Our prediction: Denver Nuggets will win.
