As the season progresses, it is obvious that the OKC Thunder are intent on competing to win games. As a result, with the Minnesota Timberwolves being on the second night of a five-game road trip, it is imperative that the Thunder win to stay in touch with the pack chasing the final playoff seeds.
The Timberwolves arrive at a great time for the Thunder to gauge where they are relative to Minnesota and potential gain some leverage in the standings. The Wolves have a 10-10 record and currently are seeded seventh in the Western Conference.
