Oklahoma City Thunder vs Minnesota Timberwolves takes place on Friday night, with both teams having won their opening games, both will want to begin a good run by stringing some wins together by gaining another victory tonight. The game will start at 8 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Kevin Durant and Kevin Love will face off tonight at the Target Center in Minneapolis, and whoever comes out on top is likely to lead their side to victory.
Durant has finished second in MVP voting for two straight years, where as Love has lost some of the form last year that previously saw him touted as one of the best players in the NBA.
He broke his hand twice, which limited his participation to just 18 games, where he averaged 18.3 points and a career-low 35.2 percent shooting.
However, he has gotten off to a good start this season and won on Wednesday, 120-115, in an overtime home win over Orlando.
In that game Love scored 31 points - a level he reached just twice last season - and hit a 3-pointer with 10.2 seconds left to force the extra period. He posted stats of 3 for 8 from beyond the arc and also made a game-high 17 rebounds.
Kevin Martin, who scored 23 points in his Timberwolves debut, said,"I think we can all agree he's already a star. He's hungry this year. He wants to get this playoff experience for the first time, and you know he played big for us tonight. You can't put it into words, but you know we were going to expect that out of him every night."
Meanwhile, Durant scored 42 points in his team's 101-98 win at Utah on Wednesday. He was 9 of 24 from the field, and 22 of 24 from the free throw line.
