Minnesota’s main threat versus the Hawks will be Anthony Edwards, he is averaging 24.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists per match, on top of securing 2.7 3-pointers per game. Atlanta will need to find a way to slow down the 1st overall draft pick from 2020, and physicality is what most analysts think should be the answer.
Minnesota continues to play without Karl-Anthony Towns, who has been on the sideline for a massive total of 47 games due to a severe calf sprain. He has recently been part of on-court drills however Towns has not attended practice yet. As for Atlanta, they will be missing creator and 3 point specialist Bogdan Bogdanovic due to back tightness.
This time around we believe Minnesota won’t have enough offensive power outside of Edwards to push for win, with Atlanta being the favorites.
