For a breakdown of tonight’s matchup, be sure to check out this game preview. The Wolves enter Valentine’s Day looking to finish their six-game home stand with a win before heading out to Denver for their last game tomorrow before the All-Star break.

Very important stat of the night, courtesy of my guy Alan Horton:

As for injuries, Zach LaVine (knee), Adreian Payne (illness), and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) are all OUT. For the Cavs, Kevin Love (knee) and J.R. Smith (thumb) are OUT as well.

For game coverage, be sure to follow my guy John Meyer who will be live-tweeting the game from the friendly confines of the Target Center. Additionally, make sure to follow @canishoopus and @FearTheSword (our friends over at SBNation Cleveland).

The game thread is open and ready for business. Be kind. Unwind. Let’s talk Wolves.
