Thunder Faces Young T-Wolves For First Time This Season

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS -

The Thunder will try to get back on track in Minnesota tonight against the slumping T-Wolves in a 7:00 p.m. CT tipoff.

Minnesota (12-26) has lost 10 of 11 and six-straight entering tonight’s contest. The Thunder (26-12) lost just three times in the month of December but have suffered two setbacks in early January to sub-.500 teams.

Tonight will be the first meeting of the season between the Northwest division foes who face off three times this month.

The Wolves have a plethora of promising young players. First-overall picks Andrew Wiggins (20.6 ppg) and Karl-Anthony Towns (15.9 ppg, 9.2 rpg) have put up good numbers early on. Point guard Ricky Rubio is fifth in the NBA at 8.9 assists-per-game.

Both Minnesota and Oklahoma City are in the bottom half of the league in points allowed so expect a high-scoring affair.
