Atlanta has excellent balance, #13 in the NBA in points scored and #10 in points allowed. The Hawks come off a 123-115 overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons, overcoming a 17-point, fourth-quarter deficit. Atlanta faces a short-handed Minnesota squad that will be without Karl-Anthony Towns, Ricky Rubio, and Juancho Hernangomez because of COVID protocols. Minnesota is on an 11-27 spread run at home, is #27 in the NBA defensively in points allowed, and #25 in points scored. Atlanta beat the T-Wolves on Monday, 108-97, and is on a 9-4-1 ATS run in Minnesota. Play Atlanta.
