What you need to know about the Timberwolves

Minnesota struggled down the stretch of March, losing four of its final five games. The Timberwolves bounced back with consecutive road wins over Denver and Houston before suffering a bad loss to Washington as 12-point favorites on Tuesday. They have clinched at least a spot in the Western Conference play-in tournament, but they are now two games back of Denver for the No. 6 seed, which avoids the play-in tournament altogether. 

The Timberwolves will be looking to clean things up defensively, as they have allowed at least 130 points in four of their last five games. Center Karl-Anthony Towns leads the team with 24.6 points and 9.8 rebounds per game, while small forward Anthony Edwards is adding 21.1 points. Minnesota has won 11 of its last 13 games against a Western Conference opponent. Patrick Beverley (ankle) and Jaden McDaniels (ankle) are both listed as questionable for tonight.

What you need to know about the Spurs

San Antonio is playing its best basketball of the season, winning seven of its last eight games. The Spurs are riding a three-game winning streak following a 116-97 win at Denver on Tuesday. They have clinched their spot in the play-in tournament as well, and they have an opportunity to move past ninth-place New Orleans if they can gain one game in the standings. 

Leading scorer and second-leading rebounder Dejounte Murray is going to miss Thursday night’s game due to an illness. The Spurs will need increased production from Keldon Johnson, who is averaging 16.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. San Antonio has covered the spread in seven of its last eight games. Lonnie Walker IV (back) is questionable to play.
