Thanks to Nikola Pekovic’s 25 points and 18 rebounds, the injury-riddled Minnesota Timberwolves pulled off an improbable 108-103 win over Atlanta last night at Target Center. As Star Tribune writer Jim Souhan put it: The Wolves continue to win games they shouldn't.

Tonight, a much tougher test for the Wolves as they face the Thunder in Oklahoma City.

As Fox Sports North reports, look for Ricky Rubio to be in the lineup in his first back-to-back games since returning from knee surgery. Minnesota is also looking to win its first back-to-back games since mid-December.
