Score: 104 - 100
Point Spread: +5½/-110 Minnesota
3* NBA SMASH on T-Wolves +5.5
Playing in Minnesota has been no picnic for Oklahoma City, and it gets no easier for the Thunder tonight.
3 of the last 4 meetings between these two in Minnesota have been decided by 2 or fewer points. The Wolves have been able to take the Thunder down to the wire at home in recent years despite inferior guard play. Guard play should no longer be an issue for the T-Wolves with Ricky Rubio set to make his much-anticipated debut and J.J. Barea coming over from NBA champion Dallas.
Playing on the road without a day of rest is never an easy task. Plus, the Thunder are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU win and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win. Take the T-Wolves.
