Miami meets Minnesota for the first time this season, and the hosts open as firm money line favorites. The Timberwolves are coming in full strength, while the Heat have serious injury worries and could miss some very important players.
Miami started its road trip with a 112-104 defeat at the Toronto Raptors. A couple of days later, the Heat suffered a heartbreaking 107-106 overtime loss at the Washington Wizards. Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra had just seven players at his disposal last Friday.
The Heat blew a 14-point second-half lead, finishing the game with just 35.7% shooting from the field and 25.6% from beyond the 3-point line (11-for-43). Kyle Lowry led Miami with a triple-double of 24 points. Duncan Robinson (hand), Gabe Vincent (knee), Udonis Haslem (personal), and Dewayne Dedmon (foot) are all questionable for Monday’s clash against Minnesota.
The Minnesota Timberwolves (8-8) outlasted the Philadelphia 76ers (112-109) as 3.5-point road favorites this past Saturday. The T-Wolves extended their winning streak to three games but failed to cover for the fourth time in six outings. They nearly blew a 15-point fourth-quarter lead, and after Anthony Edwards made a couple of free throws with 4.1 seconds left on the clock, the Sixers missed a pull-up jumper from downtown.
Edwards led the way for Minnesota with 25 points, five rebounds, and five assists, but he also went just 2-for-10 from beyond the arc. D’Angelo Russell accounted for 19 points and seven assists, while Karl-Anthony Towns made only five of his 14 field-goal attempts for 12 points.
Minnesota ranks 16th in the NBA in both adjusted offensive efficiency (112.1 points per 100 possessions) and adjusted defensive efficiency (112.5). The Timberwolves are tied with the New York Knicks for the most 3-pointers allowed per game (14.3). Anthony Edwards is tallying 22.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game, while Karl-Anthony Towns is adding 21.3 points, 8.9 boards, and 5.1 dimes a night.
