What you need to know about the Timberwolves
Minnesota has been one of the hottest teams in the NBA over the last two weeks. The Timberwolves have now come out victorious in six of their last seven games, including a win over Philadelphia as 6.5-point underdogs on Saturday. Minnesota has not been favored by more than 3.5 points in any game during this stretch, so it has covered the spread in seven of its last eight games.
Guard D'Angelo Russell scored 35 points and dished out eight assists in the upset win over the 76ers. Russell is averaging 21.6 points and 6.3 assists during this seven-game stretch. Big man Karl-Anthony Towns and guard Anthony Edwards are both playing well, too -- Towns recorded his tenth double-double of the season on Saturday.
What you need to know about the Pacers
Indiana has already sprung four outright upsets as an underdog this season, so it has a good mentality for this kind of game. The Pacers have won three of their last five games, led by point guard Malcolm Brogdon and power forward Domantas Sabonis. Shooting guard Caris LeVert is coming off a season-high 23 points in a loss to Milwaukee on Sunday.
LeVert returned from back soreness two games ago, scoring 18 points in a win over the Raptors. Indiana has had Minnesota's number of late, winning each of the last five meetings. The Pacers covered the spread in four of those victories and they are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven trips to Minnesota.
