Injury Report: Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson left the last game with a groin strain and is questionable to play tonight. Jeremy Lin ruptured his patellar tendon in the season opener and is out for the season. For the Timberwolves, Jimmy Butler has missed the last four games with a sore knee and is questionable. Justin Patton is out indefinitely as he recovers from offseason foot surgery.
Who the Trends Like: Brooklyn is 2-11 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Minnesota and 8-19 ATS in the last 27 meetings overall. Minnesota is 7-0 ATS in its last seven home games.
Who We Like: Let's keep this one quick and simple. The Nets have poor history against the T-Wolves, who have also been dominating teams at home. If Butler returns, I like Minnesota even more. But as it is, I think they are the play regardless. The Timberwolves are 19-6 straight up at home this season, while Brooklyn is only 8-16 on the road.
