The NBA's leading assist team will be on the road at Target Center, when the San Antonio Spurs (24.8 APG) square off with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Timberwolves are one game below .500 on the year as they are currently 9-10. On the other hand, the visiting Spurs are above .500 on the year, coming in with a 15-3 record. They have been hot as of late, winning eight of their last 10. This game has a start time of 9:30 pm EST and NBA TV, FSN-SW and FSN-N will be providing coverage of the contest.

The Timberwolves are expecting better results after their 113-103 loss to the Thunder. Despite the loss, Nikola Pekovic earned his eighth double-double of the year. He recorded 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Wolves. Meanwhile, the Spurs are coming off a tight win over the Hawks, 102-100. Tim Duncan was one of the leaders and claimed his second double-double of the year, accumulating 23 points and 21 rebounds.
