The Minnesota Timberwolves took the first meeting against the San Antonio Spurs this season, but the second meeting could certainly be different. While they're both winners in their last outing, the Timberwolves could be without at least one of their key contributors in that first meeting. According to the Star Tribune, Michael Beasley is a game-time decision:
Webster, Miller and Ridnour all available for
@wolves tonight. Beasley game-time call. Barea and Lee out.
Beasley has been out since Jan. 6 with a sprained right foot, and it's significant that he could be back for this game because he was such a contributor in the first meeting. Beasley had 19 points in the first outing between these two teams, giving the Timberwovles their first win over the Spurs since 2007.
It's also significant that Luke Ridnour is back in action after missing their last outing, a win over the Dallas Mavericks. Ridnour, like Beasley, had 19 points against the Spurs in the first outing between these two teams.
