Injury Report: Cleveland point guard Derrick Rose is targeting a mid-January return from a sprained ankle. Iman Shumpert is out until late January after arhtroscopic knee surgery. Jeff Teague will miss another few weeks with a sprained MCL. .

Who We Like: Minnesota has won four straight home games and will certainly be up for this matchup. Karl-Anthony Towns should be able to have his way inside, while Cleveland has struggled all season defending the perimeter. Sure, the Cavaliers will get their points. I just happen to think the T-Wolves will score even more.
