Minnesota will head to Louisiana as part of an away match of the next NBA regular season game day, where they will try to put up a decent resistance to the local New Orleans. Both teams represent the Western Conference, but have very different tasks in the course of the season.

Bet here and win

Minnesota Timberwolves

Minnesota is already mired in a swamp at the bottom of the Western Conference standings. It should be mentioned that both teams have terrible defense. Timberwolves has the worst record in the West with 117.3 points on average per game, while Pelicans have the second lowest score at the end with 116.9 points.

The Minneapolis team occupies the penultimate position in the standings, and seeing only two victories in the last 10 games of this team, it is easy to guess that they match their position in the table. Their results are even lower on the road, one win in 11 games and that’s all they could do.

New Orleans Pelicans

New Orleans before Zion Williamson’s debut and after it looks like two completely different versions of the same team. The first number of the final draft in 15 starting matches scores an average of 24.1 points in 28 minutes on the floor. That’s why Pelicans are already on the ninth line, and the playoffs do not seem like a pipe dream. The team now has 43% of the winning games.

Alvin Gentry’s wards are literally a stone’s throw away from the playoff zone, and have been doing their best lately, as can be seen, to reduce the distance from the nearest teams. This can also be seen in the last 10 games of the team from Louisiana, where six games ended in their favor.

Timberwolves vs Pelicans Prediction

In recent years, these teams have played 30 matches, as a result of which the leader is Pelicans team for only two wins. The 16 games we won against Minnesota’s 14 times is a small advantage, but three wins in four games last year tell us otherwise.

An obvious advantage in this match, judging by the statistics that we have, as the campaign of this season, and recently the team of New Orleans Pelicans. The hosts outperform their opponents in all indicators, in addition, they will play at home, so it won’t be difficult for them to win.

Our prediction: New Orleans will win and total will be under 239.5.
