TIMBERWOLVES should be focused on the play-offs coming off a career high night for Towns.
Starting with Dallas, three of Minnesota’s last six games are against teams that have already been eliminated from post-season contention. Minnesota have had their way against the Mavericks, winning the three previous games this season by an average of 14 points.
Double them up with Lillard returning to Portland after the birth of his son this week (which is why he sat out the Memphis loss).
Portland are yet to lock up the third seed with San Antonio only three games back but the Clippers are on the outside looking in so they should be competitive.
However, this has been the best Portland team since the departure of Aldridge and the home fans know it. The only trend I don’t like about this pick is the home team have lost in each of the three games in the season's series.
