Timberwolves vs. Nets: How to watch NBA online, TV channel, live stream info, game time

Through 3 Quarters

Fans are certainly getting their money’s worth as the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Brooklyn Nets have combined for 197 points three quarters in. Minnesota has emerged as the frontrunner and is ahead of Brooklyn 102-95.

Point guard D’Angelo Russell has led the way so far for the Timberwolves, as he has 23 points and eight assists. Brooklyn has been led by point guard Kyrie Irving, who so far has 20 points and four assists along with four boards.

Brooklyn has been used to carrying a lead into the fourth quarter lately, so we’ll see how they respond to the deficit.

What to Know

After two games on the road, the Minnesota Timberwolves are heading back home. They will take on the Brooklyn Nets at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday at Target Center after having had a few days off. Minnesota hasn’t won a game against Brooklyn since Dec. 30 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought.

The contest between the Timberwolves and the Atlanta Hawks last Wednesday was not a total blowout, but with Minnesota falling 134-122 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. Minnesota was up 42-26 at the end of the first quarter but couldn’t hold on to the lead. A silver lining for them was the play of point guard D’Angelo Russell, who had 31 points and five assists.

Meanwhile, Brooklyn didn’t have too much trouble with the San Antonio Spurs on the road this past Friday as they won 117-102. The Nets’ point guard James Harden did his thing and dropped a triple-double on 37 points, 11 dimes, and ten rebounds. The Beard now has eight triple-doubles this season.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Timberwolves are expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

Brooklyn’s victory lifted them to 29-16 while Minnesota’s loss dropped them down to 22-23. We’ll see if the Nets can repeat their recent success or if Minnesota bounces back and reverse their fortune.
