The Wolves look for their third win a row tonight when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight at Target Center. The Wolves have lost their previous two meetings with the Thunder, both on the road. Russell Westbrook of course put up big numbers in both games (though didn’t get a triple double in either!), but a big factor has been the Wolves inability to stop Enes Kanter, who scored 20 off the bench in each meeting.

Tom Thibodeau has tried more or less every big he has trying to defend Kanter to no avail; it will be interesting to see what the plan is tonight.
