Minnesota at Boston

2 units on Boston -4 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: LOSS
Kevin McHale returns to Boston tonight as the interim coach of the Timberwolves. After a great season last year, the Wolves can't do anything right, having lost 11 of their last 16 games. They might not even make the playoffs. Boston, on the other hand, is rocking after the return of Gary Payton and Antoine Walker. Don't forget this team went to the Eastern Conference finals not that long ago with Walker and Pierce in the mix. Boston has won 16 of their last 20 home games and they've kicked up their scoring average by 4 full points per game over their last five games. Kevin Garnett had a great game against Milwuakee but he tends not to put those games back-to-back and Minnesota should be flat here against a team with a lot of momentum and a rockin' Sunday crowd at the Fleet Center. Two stars on Boston minus the points.
