The Minnesota Timberwolves (36-37) host the Atlanta Hawks (36-36) this Wednesday (22), at 9 pm, with a live broadcast on the subscription service NBALeague Pass.
The race for a postseason berth remains intense in the Western Conference. The difference between the 7th place Dallas Mavericks and the 12th Los Angeles Lakers is just one game. In the middle of the “fight”, the hosts are in 8th and know that there is no more room for stumbling.
Also in 8th position, but in the East, visitors are in a more comfortable situation. However, they arrive at today’s match more tired, as they entered the court yesterday (21) and beat the weak Detroit Pistons (16-57), which has the worst campaign in the league. Virtually guaranteed in play-inTrae Young and company are four games ahead of the 11th-ranked Washington Wizards.
The last meeting between the teams was last week in Atlanta. On the occasion, Anthony Edwards scored 32 points and led Minnesota’s victory by 136×115.
For tonight’s duel in the NBA, the Timberwolves have some outstanding issues. Edwards, Jaylen Nowell and Karl-Anthony were listed as “questionable”. On the Hawks side, Dejounte Murray, sick, and Jalen Johnson, injured, were not available yesterday and are doubts.
