The six-game road trip

@ Pacers, @ Cavaliers, @ Lakers, @ Clippers, @ Jazz, @ Jazz

Following the Blazers game on March 4, the Wolves head out on a six-game road trip that starts in the Midwest and then heads out to the West Coast. This is likely the toughest stretch for Wolves after the All-Star break.

However, they have been fantastic on the road all season. Amongst all teams, Minnesota has won the most games away from home, 20. Despite this grueling six-game stretch, the Wolves may go 5-1 here.

Surprisingly enough, the Wolves are 7-0 against the aforementioned squads, playing every team at least once besides the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Projected record: 9-2

Back home for four

vs. Nuggets, vs. Cavs, vs. Warriors, vs. Pistons,

This is a pretty tough three-game slate coming off a long road trip. The Pistons should be a guaranteed win, they will be tanking the rest of the season.

Here, we have the Wolves losing to the Denver Nuggets and the Golden State Warriors, but defeating the Cavs. Steph Curry and Nikola Jokic get the Wolves this time, but in between defeating the Cavs.

Projected record: 11-4
