Minnesota Timberwolves vs Denver Nuggets Time & Date: Thursday 13th February from Target Center Coverage: LIVE at 12:00pm AEDT The ailing Minnesota Timberwolves will continue their four game home stand on Thursday when they welcome the Denver Nuggets which concludes Denvers' four game road trip. Both teams are turning to unfamiliar players to carry a higher offensive load with some key players out for both sides. Similarly to Patty Mills receiving lots of minutes and opportunity with the Spurs, Randy Foye has been thrust into the point guard position to replace the injured Ty Lawson, Nate Robinson and the troubling Andre Miller. Foye has excelled in crunch time for the Nuggets, providing dagger three's and none were more important than the hail mary game winner he had over the Los Angeles Clippers last Tuesday. Wilson Chandler has returned to the top form he had when with the New York Knicks, he's become a leader for the Nuggets as he's played a large amount of consecutive games. The NBA's fourth leading scorer and second leading rebounder Kevin Love may be unavailable for the contest, but Corey Brewer excelled in covering his offensive load against the Portland Trail Blazers as he recorded an efficient 26 points and seven rebounds. Minnesota were slightly outplayed by the Nuggets in the first two meetings with Denver winning 117-113 and 117-110 respectively, although both games were in November. This contest could not be more unpredictable. Watch For: The Manimal! Kenneth Faried! If Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic do indeed sit until the All-Star break it opens up the rebounding to a relentless Faried who isn't afraid to punctuate his slams.
