The Minnesota Timberwolves will look to pull off the home upset over the visiting Golden State Warriors when they host their Western Conference counterparts in their nationally-televised showdown on Sunday.

The Warriors have won seven straight games coming into this contest including their 110-107 win over San Antonio on Thursday night as Kevin Durant took over and scored a game-high 37 points. The victory did come with a coast as superstar point guard Steph Curry was lost for the foreseeable future to another sprained ankle.

"We still have three All-Stars when Steph goes down," head coach Steve Kerr said. "We still have a lot of talent."

Durant also added 11 rebounds and four blocked shots to almost single-handedly down the Spurs.

"I felt good shooting the midrange as always," Durant said. "I tried to press go and shoot every time, not bad shots."

Draymond Green added his third triple-double this season with 11 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Curry was lost for the night to a rolled right ankle early in the first quarter, but the Dubs responded in a big way to get the win.

"It’s just always a kind of hold-your-breath type of moment when that happens," Green said.

Minnesota has lost three straight coming into this contest including a 117-109 home loss to Boston on Thursday.

The Timberwolves got a game-high 30 points from Nemanja Bjelica and placed all five starters in double digits, but they got almost nothing from their bench outside of the 15 points that veteran Jamal Crawford scored.

Namanja drained 6 of 9 from three-point distance but Minnesota continued their struggles without all-star Jimmy Butler.

"We have to understand how hard and physical you have to play," Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I think that’s the difference right now between us being a really good team and being a good team."

For this Sunday matchup, I’m backing the Golden State Warriors to get the win and extend their winning ways despite being without Steph Curry. As head coach Steve Kerr pointed out, the Dubs still have three all-stars and arguably the best player in the game today in Kevin Durant.

Golden State definitely wants to keep pace with the incendiary Houston Rockets in the hopes of getting the No. 1 overall seed in the Western Conference playoffs and that means the Timberwolves are going down in this one!’

Can Inconsistent Thunder Hold It Down at Home Against Struggling Spurs on Saturday?

Despite putting together their own ‘Big Three’ this season, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been consistently inconsistent all season long. Now, with the stretch run portion of the regular season here and the playoffs looming, Russell Westbrook and company will look to hold it down at home when they host the struggling San Antonio Spurs on Saturday.

Why Bet The Spurs

Heading into their Thursday night matchup against Golden State, the Spurs had lost two of their last three games and an uncharacteristic seven of their previous 10 games overall. While San Antonio did manage to snap a two-game skid by beating Memphis 100-98 on Monday, the Spurs are in the midst of some struggles we haven’t seen out of the franchise in two decades of sheer excellence. In their last seven losses, San Antonio had given up a whopping 116 points or more five times while allowing 121 or more in three of those contests.

There is some really good news for the Spurs moving forward though and that’s the return of superstar Kawhi Leonard is apparently imminent after he’s missed virtually all season with a quadriceps injury.

"I don’t have a set date right now [for my return]," the 26-year-old Leonard said. "The progress I’ve been making has been great. [The pain] is diminishing. It’s hard to explain, but I’m definitely better. I feel better, and I’m feeling more comfortable."

Why Bet The Thunder

On the flip side of the coin, Oklahoma City had lost two straight by falling at Portland and at home against Houston heading into their own Thursday night matchup against Phoenix. Oklahoma City lost four of nine heading into Thursday night while giving up at least 108 points in every game and 120 or more in two of those defeats.

Spurs Vs Thunder Final Score Prediction

For this Saturday night showdown, I am betting on the Oklahoma City to get the win, much like they did in their 90-87 home win over the Spurs on Dec. 3. My Spurs vs Thunder final score prediction points to a 6-point win by the home team. If the spread for this matchup looks a little too high, I’d back the Spurs to cover the chalk, particularly seeing as how the Thunder are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games and 0-3 ATS in their last three home dates!

Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma City 114 San Antonio 108
