Wolves Look To End Losing Streak Against Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics

The Minnesota Timberwolves will look to discontinue their six-game losing streak this evening at the Target Center against the Boston Celtics, but if that doesn’t happen — and let’s face it, it isn’t likely — Anthony Randolph continuing a streak of his own would be a nice consolation prize for Wolves fans looking for positives.

Randolph, a potential-laden power forward that has yet to make his mark in pro basketball, was inserted into the starting lineup for the Wolves past two games against the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder because Kevin Love was out with a groin injury and responded with back-to-back double-doubles. It pales in comparison to Love’s 53-game streak, but at least it shows that the Wolves might have something to build on off of their bench.

Boston, the former top seed in East, has lost six of its last 10 games and is in danger of falling further behind the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls so a win against the Wolves is much needed.

the most meaningful Minnesotan match-up to watch would be former franchise player Kevin Garnett squaring off against current franchise player Kevin Love in a Battle of the Kevins. That seems unlikely due to Love’s injury, however, though he was listed as questionable on the Wolves’ injury report.
