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.

Wolves look to keep Cleveland winless on the road

Posted by: Kent Youngblood under Wolves pre-game Updated: November 13, 2013 - 6:27 PM

The Wolves will try to keep a streak going tonight when they play a Cleveland team that is 0-5 on the road this season.

They get a Cavs team that is without center Andrew Bynum, who, coming back from injury, played pretty well in Cleveland’s loss in Chicago Monday. Bynum is away for a family matter, and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Anderson Varejao, the versatile forward/center who will probably defend two or three Wolves during the course of the game.

In other pre-game news:

--Other streaks: Ricky Rubio has a steal in 29 straight games, the longest active streak in the league. Kevin Love has an offensive rebound in 83 straight games, also the league’s longest streak. Nikola Pekovic is second with 82. Love will be going for his 200th double-double tonight.

--Corey Brewer leads the league with 56 fast-break points.

--Kevin Martin has scored 20 points or more in seven of the team’s eight games, including three of 30 or more. He had 20 or more just 10 times with Oklahoma City last season.

No surprise with the starters: Love, Pekovic, Rubio, Martin and Brewer for the Wolves, Alonzo Gee, Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, Varejao and Dion
