Tip-off at 22:00  
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Milwaukee Bucks face off at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota on the night of Saturday, March 19 with both teams sporting an impressive run of form.
The Timberwolves beat San Antonio Spurs ‪149-139 in Texas on Tuesday to register their eighth win in 10 games, which included a massive victory against Eastern Conference leaders Miami Heat.
Chris Finch's men are seventh in the Western Conference standings and closing in on the Denver Nuggets, who occupy the final automatic playoff spot.

Karl-Anthony Towns scored an astonishing 60 points against the Spurs - the most by a player in the NBA this season - surpassing his previous best by four after he posted 56 points against the Atlanta Hawks in 2018.
"They were selling out to protect the rim with everything else we were trying to do," Finch said. "He [Towns] had the matchup, and they didn't have an answer for him. We definitely needed it and he stepped up."
The Bucks are challenging the Heat for honours in the Eastern Conference and they made it seven wins from 10 with a ‪117-111 victory over the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City on Tuesday.
Giannis Antetokounmpo contributed 30 points and 15 rebounds  for the visitors, who welcomed back Brook Lopez from a back injury that had kept him on the sidelines for the last 67 games.

Lopez scored six points on his return and head coach Mike Budenholzer said of the center: "He's just somebody who's incredibly valuable to us on both ends of the court.
"I think he just gives the whole team a real confidence that there's always somebody there that has their back."
The Timberwolves got the better of the Bucks in their previous encounter of the ‪2021-22 NBA Regular Season on October 27, with D'Angelo Russell's 29 points helping them to a ‪113-108 success.
