The Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves meet head-to-head in Summer League action on Thursday night. The Nets will be looking to bounce back following a 120-84 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday. Second-year pro Cam Thomas dropped 29 points in another stellar individual performance.

Meanwhile, the Timberwolves have lost each of their last two games and scored only 138 points during that span. Kevon Harris put together a balanced showing in Minnesota's 87-75 loss on Wednesday with 16 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. The team shot just 35.4% from the floor.

Nets vs Timberwolves Prediction & Pick

Anytime Cam Thomas is on the court, the Nets have a chance to win. The LSU product is averaging 28.7 points, 4.0 assists and 2.0 rebounds during this year's Summer League. Simply playing clean basketball would go a long way for this team considering Brooklyn has logged 55 turnovers in three games.

Since dropping 22 points on 8-for-15 shooting in Minnesota's opening game, rookie Josh Minnott has disappeared on offense. The 2022 second-round pick is shooting just 25.0% from the floor over his last two games and no one is stepping up to pick up the slack. That is not a winning combination.

I'll back an experienced Nets squad to get back to the .500 mark here and cover the -5.5 spread (-105).
