Minnesota Timberwolves at Toronto Raptors

Well I am very hopeful the Raptors can once again play the way they did on Sunday. Not because it will mean another win but because I want TO SEE them play well and win. Sunday was a real bummer at Cuzoogle HQ because technology ruined the afternoon and I missed what looked like a fun game to see. We had to go out for a grocery run and normally I would of insisted that it be done early so I can be on the couch for tip off.

But in the world of PVRs, I marked the red dot and did not worry about rushing around the store. We got home around 2:30pm and it was time for me to relax and enjoy one of my most favourite things to do on a Sunday afternoon.

Grabbed a snack and hit play. All seemed fine but as I wsa fastforwarding past the pregame stuff I noticed the red bar was not moving even though the live game would of been half over by now.

Did not worry about it but I was in the second quarter and that damn bar was still not moving. So of course at the 10:00 mark in the second, all went to shit.

The screen froze, went all pixelated and all of a sudden was on the live game (that was OVER!) I could not figure out how to get that missing chunk back and was pretty damn frustrated.

Usually it is the Raptors play on the court that leaves me annoyed but on this day it was the PVR.

Anyways, sorry for the rant, here is everything you need to know for tonight’s game.

The Goods

  • The Raptors look to defeat Minnesota for the 10th straight time tonight.
  • Marion had 16 points and 15 rebounds on Sunday for his second double-double with the Raptors.
  • The Raptors have had little trouble against the Timberwolves in recent years. They’ve won nine straight in the series, including a 110-102 victory Feb. 10 in Minnesota in which Toronto shot 53.1 percent from the field.
  • Minnesota has also dropped seven of its last eight overall, including a 111-108 defeat at home to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
  • The Timberwolves have not won in Toronto since a 108-97 victory on Jan. 21, 2004.

For Bettors

  • The favorite is 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
  • The Timberwolves are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Toronto.
  • The Timberwolves are 0-9 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

Predicition

I will start off by saying I will see this game because there is nothing better on. The Raps should bottle up whatever they did on Sunday and crack it open again. No Big Al in the middle, so Toronto should just go inside at will. The Raps will win 101-90 in what will be a way better game to watch than the one in Minny a few weeks ago.
