Timberwolves Schedule 2012: Minnesota Hosts Oklahoma City On Saturday Night

The struggling Minnesota Timberwolves will look to right the ship this weekend as they host Kevin Durant and the Western Conference leading, Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night. It will be the final time these two teams meet this season.

If the previous two meetings are any indication as to what will occur on Saturday night, then you can be rest assured that it will be a barn burner. Both teams are in the top-ten in points-per-game and have scored at least 100 points in each game. When they last met on March 23, the Thunder came away victorious, 149-140. Oklahoma has won both games.

The game will be televised on Fox Sports North and can be heard on 830 WCCO-AM with a 7:00 p.m. tip-off.

Timberwolves Vs. Clippers Final Score: Without Kevin Love, Minnesota Loses Eighth Straight, 95-82

The Minnesota Timberwolves dropped their eighth straight game on Thursday night, falling to the Los Angeles Clippers by 13, 95-82. Blake Griffin scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the win for the Clippers.

The Timberwolves played without Kevin Love, who was injured during Wednesday night's loss to the Denver Nuggets when JaVale McGee's elbow found Love's face. Love suffered a mild concussion and a neck strain. Despite Love being out, the Timberwolves were up one at the half, but the Clippers outscored the T-Wolves 48-34 in the second half.

Jose Barea scored 10 points and had 11 assists, but did not score in the second half and only had one assist. Nikola Pekovic scored a team-high 17 and Michael Beasley had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds off the bench.

Minnesota plays next on Saturday against Oklahoma City.

Timberwolves Vs. Clippers Score Update: Minnesota Up At Half Without Kevin Love, 48-47

The Minnesota Timberwolves have lost seven straight games and are without Kevin Love on Thursday night against the playoff bound Los Angeles Clippers, but they find themselves up at the half by one, 48-47.

Jose Barea has picked up some of the slack for their missing All-Star, who was concussed when being elbowed by JaVale McGee during Wednesday night's game; Barea has a double-double through the first two quarters with 10 points and 10 assists. Michael Beasley has added 11 points and six rebounds off the bench.

Minnesota had a five-point lead after the first quarter and increased that to a 10-point lead early in the second, but the Clippers came back to pull within two. The T-Wolves extended the lead back to eight, but again, the Clippers responded and even took the lead before Beasley scored to recapture the lead for Minnesota just before the half.
