The Minnesota Timberwolves will travel the longer distance on Saturday as the team must make the long flight from Minnesota to Atlanta in this spot while the Hawks have the shorter trip flying from Philadelphia to Atlanta. The distance traveled from Minnesota to Atlanta is the longest trip allowed by the NBA in back to back situations and really puts the Timberwolves at a disadvantage in this spot. Minnesota enters play with injury concerns and rather major ones. Kevin Love has been listed as questionable as he turned his ankle in the team’s home loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. A rim defender Nicola Pekovic will be be out for this game is will miss another week with a sore Achilles. Pekovic is a big injury because of his size and defense. Pekovic shoots for high percentage because he gets position near the bucket for easy looks. The Atlanta Hawks have completely dominated the Minnesota Timberwolves. Atlanta has won nine of the past ten meetings between the Hawks and Timberwolves. The Hawks are 15-6 on their home court while the Minnesota Timberwolves are just 10-14 straight up on the highway.
