The Wolves host the Thunder in the final game of the season at Target Center, and it's a huge one for the Thunder.

Thunder at Wolves

It finally comes to an end tonight--a massive slog of a season full of injuries and disappointments, and a couple of bright spots, ends at Target Center against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Wolves will struggle with fielding a team tonight--who is even available?

The Thunder, meanwhile, are in a must win situation. In order to make the playoffs, they must beat the Wolves tonight and the Pelicans must lose to San Antonio, who are also looking for a win in order to cement themselves in the 2nd spot in the playoffs.

In other words, it's unlikely that the Thunder will let this one get away, which will also cement the Wolves with the worst record in the NBA (and thus the best lottery odds).

On the bright side, the playoffs are nearly here, and there should be some tremendous matchups.  We'll talk about them as always.

Come chat with us for the last Wolves game of the season.
