Today's line: Wolves by 3

Pregame reading: The Timberwolves won Sunday's first meeting of the teams.

For the fans: This is the second "in-season tournament" game for the Wolves this season. They are 1-0 after beating San Antonio on Friday. Here's how the tournament works.

Chris Hine's preview:

Opening bell: Anthony Edwards was named Western Conference player of the week as he has averaged 31.3 points in four Wolves wins over the past week. The Wolves have won six in a row, which is longer than any winning streak they had last season. Their defense held Golden State to 39% shooting in Sunday's matchup.

Latest update: Stephen Curry had 38 points Sunday as the Warriors lost to the Wolves 116-110, but he won't play tonight because of right knee soreness.

Injuries: Jordan McLaughlin remains out for the Wolves because of a right MCL sprain. Curry was added to the injury list Tuesday morning.

Forecast: The Warriors will make some adjustments in the second game for this to be a tougher matchup for the Wolves to win on the road. Golden State must make up for the loss of Curry, and the Wolves' personnel creates a lot of problems for the Warriors, especially when the Wolves are playing defense like they have so far this season. With Curry sidelined, the Wolves are a decided favorite.
