The Timberwolves who have been struggling without point guard Ricky Rubio will try and get back on track tonight vs. a tough San Antonio Spurs team. The odds for this game were pulled from Top Bet sportsbook.
The Wolves are just 2-4 since Rubio tore his ACL on March 9th vs. the Lakers. There has been some frustration that has set in as a result of Rubio being lost for the season and there is a sense of urgency to right the ship.
Minnesota is coming off of a win as they defeated the Golden State Warriors in their last outing by a score of 97-93 on Monday.
Kevin Love dominated the game vs. the Warriors scoring 36 points and snatching 17 rebounds as well. He dominated down the stretch as well scoring 8 of his teams last 10 points. He had a well-rounded game that featured 3-three pointers and going 7 of 10 from the foul line.
A key spark off the bench for the Wolves came in the form of reserve forward Anthony Tolliver. He scored 10 points in 16 minutes off the bench on Monday.
The Spurs on the other hand are coming off of a loss to the Mavericks on Saturday night. It was an evenly played game between the two teams that in the end came down to free throws. Dallas hit 21 of 25 from the line while San Antonio hit only 10 of 18 from the stripe. That was more than enough of a difference to give the champs the win.
The Spurs had 4 players score in double figures led by Danny Green, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan who scored 17 points each and Tiago Splitter who scored 15 off the bench.
The Spurs have actually lost 2 straight games against the Wolves. This time around however the Spurs will have Ginobili while the Wolves will be without Rubio.
