Minnesota opened as a 15-point favorite before the spread widened, while the total has gone down a point from 213. The T-Wolves are a -16.5 almost everywhere, but the spread can be found at -16. The over-under is 212 at most books, but is also available at 212.5 if you shop around.


As of Monday afternoon, 61 percent of public bets are coming in on the visiting Grizzlies. Online wager info also states that 52 percent of bets are on the under.


Memphis power forward JaMychal Green (knee) is questionable to play tonight. Point guard Andrew Harrison (wrist) and Tyreke Evans (personal) are both out indefinitely. Small forward Chandler Parsons (knee), shooting guard Wayne Selden (knee), power forward Jarell Martin (ankle) and point guard Mike Conley Jr. (Achilles) are all out for the season. For Minnesota, centers Cole Aldrich (illness) and Justin Patton (illness) are bot questionable.


This is a yuck game at the end of the regular season, but the fact of the matters is that it is a very important game for Minnesota. The Timberwolves hold the eighth spot in the Western Conference playoffs and have the same 45-35 record as the ninth-place team, the Denver Nuggets. Tom Thibodeau loves to play his starters a ton of minutes and even in a blowout, expect him to take no chances tonight. Go with Minnesota to roll over the NBA's second-weakest team.
