G7 MIN Timberwolves vs BKN Nets: “A Win Before 5-Game Road Trip?
In the last home game before 5-game road trip, Brooklyn Nets (2-4) need to desperately get another win against the Minnesota Timberwolves (1-4). The good news is the Wolves also struggled with defense giving up 106.7ppg in 3 road games and lost all 3 road games.
- Isaiah Whitehead is expected to start at PG and will match up with another rookie PG, Kris Dunn, who starts in place of Rubio who is still out with elbow injury.
- Karl-Anthony Towns had 2 consecutive 30-pt games so it will be a good matchup with Brook Lopez and Justin Hamilton who will try to slow him down.
- Jeremy Lin is still out with the left hamstring injury. Master Luo, Lin’s favorite massage therapist/acupuncturist, is reported to be coming from Taiwan to help Jeremy Lin’s recovery. The timetable for evaluation is roughly two weeks so it is possible that Lin will come back to play the Portland Blazers at home (Nov 20) after the 5-game road trip

Let’s hope and pray the Nets will continue their formula of success, play gritty basketball together as a team, and finish the game healthy!
Let’s go, JLin and the Nets!
