Trae Young contributed 30 points (11-of-23 shooting), 10 assists and 10 rebounds. Trae Young and Karl-Anthony Towns, are in great form lately.
Both teams are expected to be at full strength today with no notable injuries. The Hawks are coming of a back to back, where as the T-wolves had a day to rest. The T-wolves are averaging 48.125 rebounds, while the Hawks are averaging only 42.25. Limiting this gap in rebounding will be key for the Hawks to win.
