With the Minnesota Timberwolves missing both Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love it would seem that the Oklahoma City Thunder would have no issues Saturday night. However, the Thunder are in a struggle against the Timberwolves and only lead 59-58 at the half.
Neither team is shooting the ball well with both shooting in the mid 40 percent range from the field, but both teams are shooting extremely well from the free throw line which is making up the difference.
Jose Juan Barea has stepped up for the Timberwolves with Rubio and Love and has a team high 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting. While the Thunder have 18 and 14 points from Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
Each team has gone on their own set of runs in the first half, and what could decide the game is who comes out and has the better third quarter.
