The line for this game is Timberwolves by 3.5 points.

Marc Gasol already set a career high for 3-point baskets just three games into the season and the standout center looks to continue his stunning outside shooting when the Memphis Grizzlies visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday. Gasol has made six 3-pointers this season after never making more than three in a season during his first eight NBA campaigns.

Gasol, who is averaging 19.3 points, struggled with close-range shots (12-of-33) and was adamant about downplaying his newfound 3-point abilities after the win over Washington. Conley had 24 points and 11 assists against the Wizards and is 7-for-11 from 3-point range while leading the Grizzlies with a 19.7 scoring average.

Minnesota is expected to be an improved team with new coach Tom Thibodeau around to mentor young standouts like power forward Karl-Anthony Towns, small forward Andrew Wiggins and shooting guard Zach LaVine, but it lost both games on the season-opening road trip. Wiggins averaged 27 points, LaVine averaged 20 and Towns averaged 18. Center Gorgui Dieng produced back-to-back double-doubles and is averaging 13 points and 13.5 rebounds.

The Grizzlies defeated the Timberwolves 102-98 in both team’s season opener behind 24 points from Conley.

Dunn, the fifth overall pick in this year’s draft, is averaging six points through two games.

Memphis SF Chandler Parsons (knee) and SG Tony Allen (knee) are both expected to miss their fourth straight game.
