We just played Minnesota last week so there's no need to redo a preview. In case you missed it the first time the original is here.
Normally you'd make allowances for a team being at home but the Timberwolves have shown themselves equally accomplished at losing home or away. OK, technically that's an exaggeration. They actually have three times as many wins at home as on the road: 3-16 at Target Center, 1-16 away.
That's not to say that this game is a gimme. The Blazers will need to show they are bouncing back from their first loss in forever. But really Portland should win. It would be a shock not to, don't you think?
