NBA Thursday: Greg Frank looks for De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield to light it up in Timberwolves vs Kings

Tip is 10 pm EST.

1-2 Christmas Day, 53-54-1 overall.

Timberwolves (+4.5) @ Kings (221.5)

Pick: Kings -4.5

Minnesota might be the coldest team in the NBA. The Timberwolves have lost 10 in a row and have three games left to avoid going 0-for-December. However, don’t expect the Wolves to end the skid tonight. Like Washington, Minnesota concludes a four-game road trip on Thursday. The Kings aren’t exactly lighting the world on fire, but they do have a decisive advantage in the back court tonight with De’Aaron Fox having been back in the starting lineup for a week now. Fox dropped 31 points on Monday against Houston and had 22 in Memphis last Saturday. Upcoming home games against Cleveland and Brooklyn are far better opportunities for the Timberwolves to put one in the win column. Look for Fox and backcourt mate Buddy Hield to roll in this one.
