Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago.

Against all odds: Wolves at Nuggets tonight

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves players, Wolves pre-game, Wolves news Updated: March 9, 2013 - 7:35 PM

The Wolves finish up their season series with the streaking Nuggets tonight in Denver, a place where the home team is 28-3 and hasn't lost since losing to Washington on Jan. 18.

One of those three teams, though, was the Wolves.

That was way back on Jan. 3, the night Kevin Love broke his hand for the second time this season and the Wolves came roaring back to win without him.

Mighty Miami is the only other team to beat the Nuggets at home.

The Nuggets haven't lost anywhere since a Feb. 22 defeat at Washington.

They have won their last seven -- four of them at home -- since then.

The Wolves will be fighting against the odds again tonight because they once again have only nine players healthy.

Love, Nikola Pekovic and Andrei Kirilenko, among others, are back home, but Brandon Roy is here traveling with his teammates.

The Wolves fly home right after tonight's game and play Dallas tomorrow night at Target Center in a 6 o'clock tip.
