What you need to know about the Timberwolves

After playing well in the five games ahead of Friday's matchup against Charlotte, the Timberwolves dropped an unlikely result to the Hornets, 110-108. Center Rudy Gobert still finished with a double-double on 17 points and 17 boards, and point guard D'Angelo Russell had a double-double of his own, recording 20 points and 10 assists. Edwards scored a team-high 25 points with five rebounds and four assists in the losing effort.

Minnesota's success this season has been built inside of the 3-point line on both ends of the floor. The Timberwolves have the sixth-highest field goal percentage in the NBA (48.3%), but the second-best two-point field goal percentage (58.4%). On defense, they have held opponents to just 50% inside the arc. Gobert has been a predictably strong rim-protector for Minnesota this season, with 1.4 blocks per game, but Jaden McDaniels has been equally tough under the basket and holds the same blocks per game average.

What you need to know about the Warriors

Golden State strolled past the Utah Jazz with points to spare this past Friday in a 129-118 victory. Curry nearly shot 50% from downtown on a 6-for-13 shooting performance as part of a 33-point night. Golden State had two other players score 20 points in Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins. As a team, the Warriors hit 51.5% of their shots against the Jazz and 44.4% of their 3-point attempts.

Golden State's high-powered offense has relied on its players finding open looks for each other, and the Warriors lead the league in assists with 29.6 per game. That could be problematic for Minnesota, who give up the third-most assists per contest (26.9).
