Currently the NBA Playoff Odds for the game have the Timberwolves favored to pick up the win at home and extend the series.

Here's the thing for me. Minnesota came out strong in each of the first two games in this series and looked spectacular doing so. Anthony Edwards looked unstoppable and Minnesota appeared to be a team that could possibly dethrone the champs as they held Denver to fewer than 100 points in both games.

Since, Denver has won three in a row and they have a chance to end the series here tonight. Jamal Murray is "questionable" for this one, but he will probably give it a go. Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic has looked list a possessed man the past three games, helping will his team to victory. Minnesota hasn't been able to get it figured out, especially in Games 3 and 5, where the T'wolves were beat-boxed off the floor.

If Jokic has another solid game tonight, the T'Wolves could be setting tee times tomorrow. Edwards is going to have to take his game to another level and hope to get some help from others on the floor. 

It's strange that Minnesota swept both games at home in the first round over the Suns, but dropped both against the Nuggets in the past week where Denver looked so strong.

In an elimination game at home, I'm expecting both teams to play well. Denver has had that look of a champion the past three weeks and I think they will play well here tonight. Minnesota must find a way to stay within striking distance here and give themselves a chance.
