Minnesota Timberwolves Form

Minnesota arrive in Philadelphia in outstanding form, having won nine of their last 10 games to improve to 20-5.

The Timberwolves won 11 of their first 15 games to set the early standard in the Western Conference, and they have not let up.

They sparked a six-game win streak in late November by beating Memphis on the road, 119-97, and they backed that up at home by beating Oklahoma City 106-103 and Utah 101-90

Minnesota then sandwiched a 102-94 home win against San Antonio with a 123-117 win in Charlotte and 127-103 in Memphis.

The Timberwolves’ streak was halted by a 121-107 loss in New Orleans, but they rebounded with a 119-101 win in Dallas and have backed that up by beating Indiana 127-109 and Miami 112-108.

Philadelphia 76ers Form

Philadelphia come into this matchup having seen their six-game win streak end last time out, leaving them 18-7.

The 76ers blew hot and cold during the second half of November, but found their form once again during the first half of December.

They responded to a 125-119 defeat in Boston with a 131-126 victory at Washington, sparking a six-game win streak.

Philadelphia then returned home to beat Atlanta 125-114 and Washington 146-101, before winning back-to-back meetings with Detroit, 129-111 on the road and 124-92 at home.

The 76ers made it six-in-a-row with a 135-82 blowout win in Charlotte, only to see their run end on Monday night as they were beaten 108-104 at home by Chicago.

Verdict

Minnesota have been in outstanding form since the season began and offer plenty of appeal as an underdog.
