Alright, hoop heads, we’ve got a David versus Goliath matchup on tap tonight! The scrappy Toronto Raptors, with their less-than-stellar 23W-52L record, are headed into the Timberwolves’ den, also known as the Target Center. They’re packing a whole lot of heart, and a whopping 36-game deficit in the Eastern conference. Meanwhile, the Minnesota Timberwolves are howling with a 52W-23L record, only half a game back in the Western conference. The Vegas wise guys have set the over/under at a cool 215.0, with the Raptors at a 15.0 line and the Timberwolves at -15.0. The Wolves are still riding high off a 113-106 victory against HOU, while the Raptors are licking their wounds from a 111-128 defeat against LAL. So, tonight, will the Raptors claw their way to victory, or will the Timberwolves chew up the competition? Either way, it’s going to be a game of tooth and claw!
