Nets at Timberwolves preview: How to watch, TV channel, start time

The Brooklyn Nets (21-34, 11th in the Eastern Conference) visit the Target Center on Saturday to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves (39-17, first in the Western Conference) for the second and final time this season and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place!

The Nets come into this game following a 121-93 loss at the Toronto Raptors on Thursday in which some familiar issues popped up for Brooklyn over the course of the contest. The Nets’ lack of defense, mainly in transition, combined with their poor rebounding led to a poor outing in Kevin Ollie’s first game as interim head coach.

The Timberwolves enter this matchup after a 112-107 loss against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday in which star guard Anthony Edwards put up 28 points, nine rebounds, and five assists for Minnesota. One factor to point out will be that the Timberwolves will be playing on the second night of a back-to-back so the Nets will have the rest advantage in this matchup.
