Two of the top teams in the NBA will meet here on Friday night to open up the weekend. This will be their second and final meeting of the regular season but this could be an early season preview of the NBA finals as the NBA is coming out of their All-Star break. Both of these teams put together an incredible regular season, and both of them will look to keep the momentum rolling with a victory here on Friday night in Minnesota. The last time these two teams met it was Minnesota that came away with a sizable victory against Milwaukee in Milwaukee, and now they will look to finish off the sweep of the Bucks here on Friday night.

Milwaukee is having plenty of struggles this season after firing their coach a couple weeks ago, the Doc Rivers era is not off to a fantastic start either. They have been struggling as of late and they will look to get things going in the right direction with a victory here on Friday night on the road against a red hot Minnesota Timberwolves team coming out of the All-Star break. This sort of feels like a must win game from Milwaukee if they want to get things back on track heading into the second half of the regular season. As they have fallen all the way, out of first place in the Central division behind the Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee will now have ground to make up throughout the last couple months of the year. 

Milwaukee comes into this game as losers of two consecutive games and they have lost seven out of their last 10 on the year so the All-Star break could not have come at a better time for a struggling Bucks team. However, after the way they played earlier this season against Minnesota, it awaits to be seen if they can get the job done and get back on track here on Friday night. Giannis Antetokounmpo will need to put up quality numbers opposite of Karl Anthony Towns if Milwaukee wants to be successful here in this one.

Minnesota has been out in front all season long and they have put together an incredible regular season. Coming out of the All-Star break they will look to keep the momentum rolling. As Anthony Edwards is playing at a very high-level and he will look to lead this team to a huge victory at home against Milwaukee. Minnesota has already picked up one comfortable victory against Milwaukee earlier this season on the road so they will look to replicate that performance throughout this game on Friday night and complete the season series sweep. 

Minnesota comes into this game with one of the best records in the league and they are closing in on their 40th victory of the year. As they come into this one with a record of 39-16 through their first 55 games of the season. They are well in line to win the Western Conference in the regular season and get a number one seed in the postseason. Which would guarantee them home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. They were on a hot streak going into the All-Star break as they have won four games in a row and seven out of their last 10 on the season. They will look to come out of the break on a hot streak as well and win their fifth consecutive game of the year here on Friday night at home.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Minnesota is 19-5 at home 

- Milwaukee is 12-14 on the road 

- Minnesota is 1-0 against Milwaukee 

I expect this to be a close, and competitive contest here on Friday night in Minnesota. As both of these teams are evenly matched, and when fully healthy, they can provide us with a thrilling and compelling regular season contest. In the end I look for the Minnesota Timberwolves to defend their home court here on Friday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. Not only do I look for Minnesota to pick up the victory I also look for them to cover the spread here in this one as well.
