MyTopSportsbook’s Final Pick
A Golden State loss in this game would be an upset of monumental proportions. Don’t count on that to happen.
Curry has been short of his 32-point average from last season, but the 50-point game he put up against the Hawks could be the turning point for him this season.
The Timberwolves should be able to put up a fair amount of points behind the duo of Towns and Edwards. However, the team is not built to keep a club like the Warriors off the board.
Golden State has been the best team this NBA season and there’s no reason to believe the club won’t get their 10th victory of the year in its 11th game of the season.
