The Boston Celtics hope to get back to streaking in the win column as they wrap up a seven-game home stretch with a visit from the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves. But despite the ‘Wolves brutal record in the league this season, the Celtics should be wary given Minnesota has beaten the Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, Utah Jazz and New York Knicks — all teams who own at least one victory over Boston this season.

That said, the Timberwolves have won just three of their last 10 contests, compared to the Celtics carrying half of their games over the same stretch — both teams the winner of their last tilt.

Can the Celtics demonstrate some momentum heading into the stretch run before a tougher West Coast turn?

Injury reports

The Celtics are nearly as healthy as they have been all season, with only the unfortunate advent of newly-acquired veteran shooting guard Evan Fournier being on the injury list in the league's health and safety protocols. For Minnesota, guard Malik Beasley is out with a strained hamstring, shooting guard Jaylen Nowell is doubtful with a right tibia contusion and guard Josh Okogie is probable with personal reasons listed.
