After a tough 109-104 loss to the Warriors on the road last night, the Timberwolves are 31-32 with only 19 regular season games left. Minnesota is currently ninth in a jam-packed Western Conference and are only two games out of fifth. One player on the Timberwolves had a dominant outing yesterday scoring a career-high 30 points. Naz Reid was a beast in the first-half for Minnesota, but the team could not hang on in the end and lost by five. 

Reid has played in 55 of the 63 games for the Timberwolves so far this season. He also made his 11th start of the year last night in place of Rudy Gobert (illness). Players like Anthony Edwards and Mike Conley were struggling to score last night and Reid was able to provide a solid offensive effort.

Currently, Minnesota Sports Betting sites have the Timberwolves at (+25000) to win the Finals this season.
