The Minnesota Timberwolves go on the road to take on the New York Knicks tonight in the second game of a home and home series that saw the Knicks go on the road and get a two point win in game one.
The Timberwolves come into this game needing something to start going right for them as while they are an ultra-talented ultra-young team things just do not seem to be coming together so far this season. The Timberwolves wasted a huge game from Karl Anthony-Towns in game one against the Knicks are really cannot count on him dropping 40 again tonight.
The Knicks have to be happy with how Melo is playing this deep into his career and with the clutch shot he hit to earn the Knicks the road win in their last game. Porzingis is playing at an amazingly high level so far this season and as long as he can stay healthy there is really no ceiling for this incredibly talented young big man.
Take the Knicks to get the win and cover at home in this one as I am not super worried about the availability of Courtney Lee for this game and I also severely doubt the ability of Towns to have another massive scoring night.
New York Knicks -2 -110
