The Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves are set to put on an exciting inter-conference matchup. The Sixers are set at third in the Eastern Conference but have been putting on a late-season push for the second seed as they've gone 8-2 over their last ten games. The Timberwolves have made their way to sixth in the Western Conference off the back of a recent three-game win streak, despite going just 5-5 over their last ten games.

If you're talking about three-and-D teams in the NBA, look no further than the Philadelphia 76ers, who average 12.7 threes per game (10th in the NBA) on 38.6% efficiency (2nd in the NBA) while limiting teams to just 110.7 points per game (3rd in the NBA). The Sixers were limited to just 109 points as they committed 22 turnovers in their last meeting with the Timberwolves, but they project to have a full-player complement this time out. The Minnesota Timberwolves will try to challenge the Sixers in the paint, as they shoot 57.5% from two-point range (3rd in the NBA) and 49.2% overall (4th in the NBA). In their last game, a 138-134 win over the Kings, the Timberwolves showed their offense can cause any team trouble as they shot 60.0% from the field and 51.3% from three while committing just 11 turnovers.

We're taking the Sixers in this matchup. Minnesota matches up relatively well with the Sixers regarding their talent, but their perimeter offense will struggle against the stalwart Sixers. While Philadelphia lost their last meeting with the Timberwolves, they'll have Tyrese Maxey and James Harden available for this matchup.
