Preview: Cavs at Timberwolves 8pm

The W&G are in Minnesota tonight to take on the Timberwolves at 8pm ET.

Probable starters & injuries:

Cavaliers: PG – Kyrie Irving, SG – Dion Waiters, SF – Alonzo Gee, PF – Tristan Thompson, C – Anderson Varejao

Timberwolves: PG – Ricky Rubio, SG – Kevin Martin, SF – Corey Brewer, PF – Kevin Love, C – Nikola Pekovic

(Timberwolves) – Ronny Turiaf, (Right Elbow), Chase Budinger, (Left Knee)

The Cavs held T-Wolves to an awful 34-94 from the field and 5-28 from behind the arc the last time they played on November 4. The team also notched 10 steals and 12 blocks during a game for the first time since 2004.

The key for tonight’s win will come from the bench. Our bench has outscored opponents in seven of eight games so far this season.  The last time they played Minnesota, the Cavs bench outscored theirs 40-27.

Side note: Anderson Verjao was recently given a warning by the NBA for flopping during the 76ers game. You can see the clip here. If he is cited again, he will be fined $5,000. Someone get him some acting lessons.
