The Minnesota Timberwolves are back in action tonight (sort of) as FSN continues to re-broadcast memorable games from the past, this time selecting the February 26 match-up between the Wolves and the Miami Heat. With Karl-Anthony Towns sidelined due to his mysterious wrist injury, fans were sadly gypped of a potential Towns/Jimmy Butler revenge game, but even with KAT out of commission, this game brought enough late game fireworks to make it well worthy of a re-watch.

Starting Lineups

Minnesota Timberwolves

PG: D’Angelo Russell
SG: Malik Beasley
SF: Josh Okogie
PF: Juancho Hernangomez
C: Naz Reid

Miami Heat

PG: Kendrick Nunn
SG: Duncan Robinson
SF: Jimmy Butler
PF: Kelly Olynyk
C: Bam Adebayo
