The Timberwolves have shone in Denver already in this series and enter this game on the back of an impressive demolition of the defending champions.

  • The Timberwolves have covered in 8 of the last 12 meetings with Denver
  • Minnesota Timberwolves have covered in 7 of their 10 playoff games so far
  • The Over has cashed in 3 of the last 4 meetings

  • Minnesota Timberwolves won 115-70 when the two teams last met on May 16

Minnesota Timberwolves Form

Minnesota head back to Denver with a shot at advancing after keeping their playoff hopes alive in Game 6.

The Timberwolves, who went 56-26 in the regular season, made a statement in the first round of the playoffs as they swept Phoenix in four games.

They then made a stunning start to this series with defending champions Denver, as they travelled to Ball Arena to record 106-99 and 106-80 victories.

Minnesota soon surrendered that lead though, losing 117-90 and 115-107 at home, before heading back out on the road to lose 112-97.

That left the Timberwolves needing a home win on Thursday night, and they got the job done in emphatic fashion as they blew out the Nuggets, 115-70.

Denver Nuggets Form

Denver return home with another chance to wrap up this series after suffering a blowout defeat on Thursday.

The Nuggets, who went 57-25 in the regular season, won four of their five meetings with the Los Angeles Lakers to ease through round one.

They dug themselves into an early hole in the second round though, as they were beaten 106-99 and 106-80 at home by Minnesota.

Denver rebounded on the road, recording 117-90 and 115-107 victories at the Target Center, and they then claimed the series lead for the first time with a 112-97 win at home.

That meant the Nuggets had the chance to clinch the series on the road on Game 6, but instead they suffered a heavy 115-70 defeat to the Timberwolves.

Verdict

Momentum has swung back to Minnesota after that Game 6 demolition of Denver.

The Timberwolves have a good recent record at Ball Arena and have covered consistently in the playoffs so far, so give us the underdogs and the free buckets.
