NBA - US Sports: Minnesota face Bucks test

Minnesota Timberwolves are pushing for a top six spot in the Western Conference and they can put some pressure on the teams above them if they overcome Milwaukee Bucks in one of four NBA games on Saturday.

Minnesota are 13/10 to win in the Money Line and the Bucks can be backed at 4/6.

Injury worries

The Timberwolves have a few injury concerns and star guard Anthony Edwards is rated as questionable due to a knee injury, although he should be able to feature having managed 32 minutes in the win over Los Angeles Lakers last time out.

Minnesota sit in seventh in the Western Conference but they are just one game behind Denver Nuggets immediately above them in the final automatic playoff spot.

The Bucks hold second seed in the East and can move to within a game-and-a-half of leaders Miami if they win on Saturday.

Good form

Both teams go into the game in fine form as Minnesota have nine wins in their last 10 games and Milwaukee have won eight of their last nine, and this clash looks the standout fixture in Saturday's schedule.
