Wolves On The Court Tonight 23 Jan 13

The Minnesota Timberwolves return home tonight to take on the Brooklyn Nets. The T-wolves are in the middle of a stretch that will see them play three of four on the road with the one stop at the Target Center coming Wednesday night. While Brooklyn has won two in a row they’ve had their issues on the road where tonight they’ll look to avoid loss number nine in a row. Could be perfect timing for a Timberwolves club that’s been struggling to get anywhere near healthy most of the season. The Wolves have gone 5-12 in their last 17 while Kevin Love is expected to miss his 10th straight game, guard Malcom Lee and forward Chase Budinger are also out and center Nikola Pekovic and rookie Alexy Shved could sit for a third consecutive contest. Tip is at 7 p.m. tonight from Minneapolis.
