NBA Analysis Network

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and the Oklahoma City Thunder (20-45) will take on Karl-Anthony Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves (37-29) in part of the Wednesday NBA slate.

Despite being without Anthony Edwards for a variety of recent games, the Timberwolves have continued to win. In fact, they enter this matchup with a five-game winning streak.

It has been another losing for the Thunder as they continue to build for the long-term. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been scoring at an elite level as of late and will have to carry the load once again with many key teammates set to be sidelined again.

There is a major disadvantage the Thunder face down low without a regular center available. Karl-Anthony Towns should be able to have a big game as a result.
