It’s a Western conference showdown on Sunday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Minnesota Timberwolves make the trip to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Thunder have won three of the last four games played between the two teams.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have had an up and down first couple of games, but they have shown the glimpses of how good they can be if they can continue to play well together, and grown together.
The biggest issue the Timberwolves have had the first couple of games is they have shown that they are still getting used to each other.
They haven’t had great communication yet, and that has led to some breakdowns on both sides of the field. After losing the first game of the season against the Spurs they bounced back against the Jazz on the way to a victory.
In terms of scoring Andrew Wiggins is leading the Wolves. He is averaging 23.5 points per game, and has shot well from behind the three point arc.
If this team wants to have success the fact that Wiggins can shoot threes is going to be huge for this team.
To win this game the Wolves need to play good defense. The Thunder have weapons all over the field and the Timberwolves need to find a way to slow that down.
Oklahoma City Thunder
On the other side of this match up is the Oklahoma City Thunder who will be playing their second game of the season on Saturday night against Utah in Salt Lake City, so that will be something to watch coming into this game.
In their first game of the season they looked good though. They played the Knicks and played really good defense and that led to a 105-84 victory.
In a surprise to no one, the new big three of the Thunder were the one to lead the team in this game. They eached scored at least 21 points in this game, and that will probably be the case for most of the season.
To win this game the Thunder are going to need to get out to a fast start. They will have the more tired legs in this game so they need to try and build up a lead early.
If they can that they can win this game. If they start out slow in this game though, they are going to have some issues.
