Timberwolves in Action Against the Nets Tonight
The Minnesota Timberwolves will take to the hard court again tonight as they face the Brooklyn Nets in New York. The Wolves have started the post-Kevin Love era 1-2 and this is their second road game of the season.
Shooting guard Kevin Martin, who was fined $15,000 by the league for making an "obscene gesture" during a recent game against the Chicago Bulls, is leading the Wolves in scoring at this early point of the season, averaging 22.5 points per game.
Brooklyn is currently 2-1, and their roster includes a player very familiar to Timberwolves fans. Kevin Garnett is in his second season in Brooklyn. Garnett was originally drafted by the Wolves back in 1995 and spent 12 seasons in Minnesota. He went on to play for Boston for six seasons, before heading to Brooklyn last season. The 38-year-old veteran is averaging 11.3 points and 8.7 rebounds per game so far this season.
