Preview: Wolves At Spurs

The Minnesota Timberwolves (39-30) conclude their three-game road trip in Texas when they face the San Antonio Spurs (26-42) on Monday night.

The Timberwolves got back into the win column after defeating the Miami Heat, 113-104. Minnesota were down as much as 17 points but quickly rallied after a 34-19 third quarter sealed off by a Taurean Prince buzzer beater from three to give the Wolves a three-point lead heading into the fourth. Jaylen Nowell led with a team-high 16 points off the bench as every starter finished with 12+ points. Minnesota has won seven out of the last eight games.

The San Antonio Spurs are coming off a 119-108 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night. Backup center Jock Landale ended the contest with a game-high 26 points in the defeat. The Sours are 4-6 in their last 10.

San Antonio has a 13-21 record at home. Minnesota lost the matchup earlier this season at Target Center, and the season series last season, two games to one.
