The Minnesota Timberwolves visit the #Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday in a game involving potential playoff contenders down the road.

Now, these star-powered teams will meet Sunday night. Here are all of the game details including odds, time, TV channels, and live stream options.

In OKC's 96-87 loss, the shooting was off and the inside scoring was definitely off. Much of that might be attributed to Rudy Gobert roaming the lane. He was also big on the offensive end, seeming to score at will at times against OKC's Steven Adams. Carmelo Anthony finished with 26 points on 12-for-26 shooting while Russell Westbrook had 13 rebounds and nine assists in the losing effort.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are also 1-1 this season so far, just like OKC. However, they are 0-1 on the road which is where tonight's game takes place. In their previous game, they took down Utah 100-97. Start player Andrew Wiggins [VIDEO] led the way with 21 points on 7-for-19 shooting, while Jamal Crawford also stepped up and scored 17 points in the fourth quarter. That included a 3-pointer to put his team ahead with under 30 seconds to go.
