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

The Brooklyn Nets (17-26, 11th in the Eastern Conference) host the Minnesota Timberwolves (31-13, second in the Western Conference) on Thursday at Barclays Center 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 108-103 loss to the New York Knicks on Tuesday in which Brooklyn looks like they were set up to finally exorcise their fourth-quarter demons. However, despite going into the fourth quarter leading by nine points, the Nets ended up getting thoroughly outplayed by the Knicks in the final period.

The Timberwolves enter this matchup after a 118-107 win at the Washington Wizards on Wednesday that earned them their 31st win of the season. Minnesota star guard Anthony Edwards scored 38 points to lead both teams in scoring, but the Timberwolves will be playing this game as the second leg of a back-to-back.
