Memphis @ Minnesota

Current Records: Memphis 8-7; Minnesota 6-9

What to Know

The Minnesota Timberwolves haven't won a game against the Memphis Grizzlies since March 23 of 2019, but they'll be looking to end the drought this past Saturday. The Timberwolves will stay at home another game and welcome Memphis at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 20 at Target Center. Both teams come into the matchup bolstered by wins in their previous games.

Minnesota made easy work of the San Antonio Spurs this past Thursday and carried off a 115-90 win. It was another big night for Minnesota's center Karl-Anthony Towns, who posted a double-double on 25 points and 12 boards in addition to five assists.

Meanwhile, Memphis had enough points to win and then some against the Los Angeles Clippers this past Thursday, taking their contest 120-108. Memphis' point guard Ja Morant did his thing and had 28 points and five assists along with five rebounds.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Timberwolves are expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.

The wins brought Minnesota up to 6-9 and the Grizzlies to 8-7. Minnesota is 2-3 after wins this year, Memphis 3-4.
