The month opens with a back-to-back beginning in Dallas. Dallas doesn’t figure to be significantly better this year, so we tip a Clips win to start the month right. The next night at the Target Center against the new-look Wolves may be a different story. By December the Wolves should have it figured out, particularly because Coach Thibodeau has facilitated an influx of his former Chicago charges (apparently someone called Jimmy Butler plays for Minnesota now). The addition of Butler creates more wing matchup issues for the LA Clippers in the West. Being a back-to-back and assuming the Wolves are legit, we predict a loss.
