OKLAHOMA CITY: LAST SEASON: 49-33, lost 4-1 to Portland in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Billy Donovan (fifth season, 199-129).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Chris Paul (15.6 ppg with Houston), G Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (10.8 with Los Angeles Clippers), F Danilo Gallinari (19.8 with Clippers), F Andre Roberson (5.0), C Steven Adams (13.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Russell Westbrook, F Paul George, G Jerami Grant, F Markieff Morris, F Patrick Patterson.
KEY ADDITIONS: Paul, Gilgeous-Alexander, Gallinari, Darius Bazley, Justin Patton, Mike Muscala. PLAYERS TO WATCH: Even though the Thunder will be widely expected to struggle this season, the backcourt of Paul and Gilgeous-Alexander ' assuming health ' is certainly good enough to help Oklahoma City contend for a postseason berth. It'll be interesting to see if Paul is energized by the trade, Gilgeous-Alexander is a budding young talent and Gallinari (coming off his best scoring season) is a veteran presence who fits very nicely into today's perimeter-based NBA game.
OUTLOOK: The Thunder went all-in on title-chasing in recent years, and now they're all-in on a reset after trading away Westbrook and George. But this isn't anywhere near a tank; there are plenty of good players on the Thunder roster, and GM Sam Presti has accumulated more than a dozen first-round picks over the next seven years to play with if he's inclined to make a big move. If they can trade Paul, which may still be an option despite the veteran's massive $44 million player option for the 2021-22 season, that would only add more pieces to Presti's plan for an OKC reload.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 36-46, finished 11th in Western Conference.
COACH: Ryan Saunders (second season, 17-25 as interim coach last season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jeff Teague (12.1 ppg), G Andrew Wiggins (18.1), F Jake Layman (7.6), F Robert Covington (14.5), C Karl-Anthony Towns (24.4).
KEY LOSSES: G Derrick Rose, G Tyus Jones, F Taj Gibson, F Dario Saric, F Anthony Tolliver, G Jerryd Bayless, F Luol Deng.
KEY ADDITIONS: Layman, G Jarrett Culver, G Shabazz Napier, G/F Treveon Graham, F Noah Vonleh, F Jordan Bell, G Jaylen Nowell, C Naz Reid.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Towns is as versatile of a big man as there is in the league, but he can't carry the scoring load alone so the pressure will be on Wiggins to take a step forward under Saunders in the second year of his max contract extension carrying a $27 million salary cap hit. Having a healthy Covington, the team's best defender who arrived in the Jimmy Butler trade from the Sixers last season but missed the last 45 games because of a bone bruise on his knee, will be a critical factor. Culver, the sixth overall pick in the draft out of NCAA runner up Texas Tech, ought to provide more of that valuable perimeter defense along with Josh Okogie off the bench. Either of them could crack the starting lineup at some point, too.
OUTLOOK: The Timberwolves have started fresh, yet again, with Saunders, the youngest coach in the league, beneath an overhauled front office headed by new president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas. With Towns and Wiggins, they have a pair of under-25 standouts locked in, and a quiet offseason relative to the rest of the NBA yielded some useful role players in Layman, Vonleh, Bell, Napier and Graham. The first steps are to establish themselves as a far more consistent and efficient team on defense and shooting from the outside. With the Western Conference even more loaded than before, though, it will be tough to measure progress in the standings. Increasing their win total will be a tall order.
Thunder, Wolves battle on 2nd half of back-to-backs

The Oklahoma City Thunder hope to work more of their road magic Saturday night when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Both teams will be contesting the second game of a back-to-back set, with the Thunder having run their winning streak to four with a 140-111 demolition of the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night while the Timberwolves were dropping their eighth straight, 131-124 at home to the Houston Rockets.

The Thunder will be seeking a fifth straight road win in a stretch that includes a previous visit to Minnesota.

That night will be remembered forever -- at least in the mind of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander -- as the one in which the 21-year-old not only recorded his first career triple-double, but at the same time became the youngest player in NBA history to register one with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds.

He finished with 20 of each, and he complemented the feat with 10 assists.

"Coach (Billy Donovan) had challenged me before the game to fill up the stat sheet more and do more things," Gilgeous-Alexander told reporters after the game. "Because he thought, as well as myself thought, that I was (capable of more than) what I was doing."

While he hasn't come close to duplicating the feat in the Thunder's past six games, Gilgeous-Alexander has become a bit of a double-double machine, recording three in a row before contributing 24 points and six assists to the Friday win.

The Canadian poured in 29 points, but had just five rebounds and two assists, when the Thunder went to overtime for a home win over the Timberwolves last month. Oklahoma City had more of a balanced attack that night, with five players going for 20 or more points.

The Thunder demonstrated similar balance with seven players in double figures Friday in the 140-point explosion against Atlanta. Danilo Gallinari led the way with 25.

Balanced scoring has not been a strength of the Timberwolves this season, a trend that continued when just four guys reached double figures in the Friday loss to Houston.

Karl-Anthony Towns paced the team with 30 points, following up a 40-point outing Wednesday in Minnesota's road loss to the Chicago Bulls.

Towns, who missed last week's meeting with the Thunder as part of a 15-game absence caused by a knee injury, has to be considered a bit of a question mark on the second night of a back-to-back. He played both games when the Timberwolves dueled Indiana and Toronto last Friday and Saturday, but struggled in the second half of the doubleheader, held to 12 points in 27 minutes by the Raptors.

Timberwolves management made it clear earlier this week that the priority is a healthy Towns for the long haul. That includes not trading him before the February deadline.

"Karl-Anthony Towns is as untouchable as they come," Timberwolves president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas said. "He's the best player on our team, and he's the guy we're building around. Everything we do is to help him become the best player and to help us become the best team we can be. He's a special talent that we're going to do anything possible to help him achieve his highest potential."
