In November, the Timberwolves pulled off an impressive win in Brooklyn, beating the Nets by 11 points without Kevin Love or Ricky Rubio.

Tonight, the rematch at Target Center -- but the dynamics are a bit different. Rubio is back with the team, but still hurting. Love, and a slew of others, are sidelined with injuries.

Tonight, for example, Minnesota will play without Alexey Shved (ankle) and Nikola Pekovic (thigh) for a third straight game, according to the Star Tribune.

The injury-riddled Wolves have lost 12 of their last 17, including a rough loss in Atlanta Monday -- where Minnesota blew an 18-point lead. The Nets, meanwhile, have won 11 of 13.
