Matchup to Watch
Karl-Anthony Towns vs. Marvin Williams: Towns is a fantastic young big man who can score all over the court. Williams had some success guarding him in two preseason exhibitions.
▪ Timberwolves small forward Andrew Wiggins is coming off a career-best 47 points in Sunday’s victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. Over the past four games, Wiggins is averaging 36.3 points.
▪ Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine sat out Sunday’s game with a sore right knee. The Timberwolves didn’t practice Monday, and the team said LaVine would be reevaluated Tuesday.
▪ The Timberwolves are coached by Tom Thibodeau, a longtime colleague and close friend of Hornets coach Steve Clifford.
▪ Keep an eye on Timberwolves rookie Kris Dunn, who could supplant Ricky Rubio as the starter at point guard by the end of the season.
