The Miami Heat (12-6) are coming off a win last night against the Detroit Pistons and now will face the Minnesota Timberwolves (8-9) tonight at 8:00pm as they continue their road trip.
The Timberwolves may have a losing record overall and at home so far this season, but they’re on a four-game winning streak — although it came at the expense of the Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Memphis Grizzlies and the New Orleans Pelicans who combined have a 21-44 record. Still, they’re a dangerous team with several players capable of having big games — Karl-Anthony Towns led the team in scoring twice while D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards each did during the win streak. Minnesota has also won three in a row at the Target Center.
Miami has no changes reported in the injury list on the second night of a back-to-back set, with Markieff Morris not with the team during the road trip and Marcus Garrett still day-to-day with a bothersome wrist. Josh Okogie (wrist) is the only player listed on Minnesota’s injury list and is questionable for tonight.
ODDS: FiveThirtyEight gives the Heat a 42% chance to win the game.
