This is a battle between the veteran laden Heat and the relative youth of the Timberwolves. As I discussed in the preview, the Heat play at a very slow pace and look for their back court of Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade to be the decision makers on the court. Wade in particular is off to a good start to his season and should be an interesting match up with Andrew Wiggins if they guard each other.

Hassan Whiteside has picked up where he left off last season and is putting up fantastic numbers at the center spot, and should be a good match up for Karl-Anthony Towns.

Winning the turnover battle, staying even on the boards, and speeding up the pace of the game should be important factors for the Wolves as they try to move to 3-1 on the season before heading out on the road for their next two games after this one.
