The Minnesota Timberwolves visit “The City that Never Sleeps” to clash with the Nets at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The Timberwolves finished its 2018-2019 season at 11th place in the Western Conference with a 36-46 win/loss cap.

The Timberwolves are fielding Center Karl Anthony Towns, SF Robert Covington, PG Jeff Teague, SF Andrew Wiggins, and SG Josh Okogie for their first 5 starters on Wednesday.

Minnesota preseason rankings are 7th in ppg, 12 in apg, 6th in rpg, and 27th in oppg.
