The Oklahoma City Thunder will be trying to extend a winning streak on Friday when they take on the Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center.

ABOUT THE THUNDER (24-16): Backup center Enes Kanter had 19 points and 13 rebounds against Memphis for his third double-double in four games, and he is averaging 18 points and 10.2 rebounds over the past five contests. Kanter played 30 minutes against the Grizzlies and Donovan has increased his minutes recently because he has seen improvement in Kanter’s defense. “He’s made a lot of strides,” Donovan said. “He’s done a better job. I think the one thing I’ve tried to discuss with Enes, you never want to get into a situation where you are taken off the floor because of your defense.”

ABOUT THE TIMBERWOLVES (13-26): Second-year center Karl-Anthony Towns racked up his ninth consecutive double-double in the win over the Rockets as he delivered 23 points and matched his career high of 18 rebounds. Towns has 29 double-doubles for the campaign and he topped 30 points for the fifth time this season in Monday’s victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Small forward Andrew Wiggins scored 28 points against the Rockets and is trying to regain his consistency as his previous four point totals include a 41-point effort and three of 16 or fewer with a low of eight.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Thunder listed as 2-point favorites versus the Timberwolves, while the game’s total is sitting at 209 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Russell Westbrook gets tired of discussing triple-doubles but there is no mistaking that the feat typically is a prime factor in an Oklahoma City victory. Westbrook takes aim at his 19th triple-double of the season and the Thunder’s fourth straight victory when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday.

Westbrook recorded 24 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists in Wednesday’s 103-95 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies to post the most triple-doubles in a single season since legendary Magic Johnson had 18 for the Los Angeles Lakers during the 1981-82 season. Oklahoma City is 15-3 this season and 33-3 over the past two seasons when Westbrook registers a triple-double. “People can get wrapped up in numbers and talk about numbers, and the numbers don’t reflect winning,” Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan told reporters. “When Russell has gotten the triple-doubles, we’ve won, and that’s what he, I think, is most focused about.” The Timberwolves recorded back-to-back victories and point guard Ricky Rubio posted 32 assists in the two wins and matched his own franchise mark of 17 in Wednesday’s 119-105 victory over the Houston Rockets.

Minnesota was a 119-105 winner in its last match at home against the Rockets. They covered the +3-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 224 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Oklahoma City won its last outing, a 103-95 result against the Grizzlies on January 11. The Thunder covered in that game as a -4.5-point favorite, while the 198 combined points took the game UNDER the total.
