For most teams their season is already over, or they are just waiting for the playoffs. But for the Denver Nuggets and Minnesota Timberwolves, their playoff dreams are coming down to the very last game.
In a battle of two former Cats, we find out if Karl Towns or Jamal Murray will head to the playoffs.
It’s often rare that two teams play in their season finale in a winner goes to the playoffs, and loser gets eliminated scenario. So rare in fact, it is the first time that it has happened in over twenty years.
Luckily for us we get to enjoy the game with two former Wildcats at the forefront of it all, in by far their biggest game of their careers.
For Karl Towns this game seems to be just a tad bit bigger, before the passing of Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders, Towns (who was a rookie at the time) promised the organization and Flip that he would help end their playoff drought. Towns is now just one game away from fulfilling that promise to his old friend.
Will Towns follow through with his promise? Or will Jamal Murray and his trusty bow and arrow pierce the Wolves? Tune into NBA TV at 8 tonight and find out.
