The Minnesota Timberwolves are back in action tonight for the second night of their home back-to-back, this time hosting the Thunder of Oklahoma City. The Wolves enter Saturday night’s contest tied with the Charlotte Hornets for the league’s longest (current) losing streak at 8 games, and are facing a Thunder squad that have won 4 straight and 7 of their last 10.

The Wolves have been on the losing side of their first two matchups against the Thunder this season, but in each game were without one of Karl-Anthony Towns and/or Andrew Wiggins. With both players expected to be in uniform tonight, let’s see if the home team can secure a different result.
