KEY GAME INFORMATION
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: RICKY RUBIO could be back by late December, but even he's not confident his knee will be 100 percent. His minutes might have to be scaled back . . . LUKE RIDNOUR will handle the offense with Rubio hampered. The vet is a steady hand in coach Rick Adelman's Euro-style offense . . . They're counting on BRANDON ROY to reclaim his old form after a radical knee procedure. He may never be 100 percent, but he should at least give them sixth-man minutes . . . CHASE BUDINGER is a three-point marksman who moves well off the ball, a perfect fit in Adelman's system . . . J.J. BAREA will take some of the point guard burden as well. He's a top sixth man . . . ALEXEY SHVED can help as a combo guard, though he might have trouble breaking into this rotation . . . MALCOLM LEE is a defensive stopper who won't be asked to shoot very often. FORWARDS: Despite being limited athletically, KEVIN LOVE is an elite rebounder and shooter for a big. He'll continue to be the focal point of this offense once he returns from a broken hand in early December . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO returns to the States after a dominating Euroleague stint. He's a big upgrade at the three and should be comfortable in Adelman's system . . . DERRICK WILLIAMS will continue his attempted transition to the three. As last year proved, he's a long, long ways away. He might have to play himself into a rotation spot . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM is a nice, efficient big to bring off the bench . . . Since they need shooting on the wings, rookie ROBBIE HUMMEL has a chance to crack the rotation. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC is a beast, the best offensive rebounder in the NBA. His total rebounding numbers get hurt playing alongside Kevin Love, but Pekovic will continue to bully his way to put-backs . . . GREG STIEMSMA is going to come in and do some pushing and shoving (and occasional shot-blocking) for 12-to-15 MPG.
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: KYRIE IRVING is the real deal, a heady playmaker and near-elite shooter. He should emerge as the NBA's next great point guard this season . . . Rookie DION WAITERS has a chance to step right into the starting lineup. He can get to the rim and generally makes good choices withthe ball. The only thing holding him back is defense after playing college ball in Syracuse's lazy zone . . . C.J. MILES will reportedly start at either the two or three spot, but he really needs to find the range on his shot again for him to stick in the starting lineup . . . Gunning combo guard DANIEL GIBSON is looking like he'll be their sixth man . . . The Cavs are still trying to figure out their second unit. JEREMY PARGO figures to be Irving's backup, but DONALD SLOAN is a better defender and could eventually pass him for this role, which doesn't mean many minutes unless Irving gets injured again. FORWARDS: TRISTAN THOMPSON is trying to add a perimeter shot to his repertoire. Don't count on him becoming David West, but he should improve offensively to go along with his rebounding and shot-blocking . . . ALONZO GEE returns as the starting small forward, excelling on the defensive end, but without a polished enough offensive game to earn 35 minutes per night . . . OMRI CASSPI was in and out of the rotation late in the year as he battled knee issues. It's getting close to make-or-break time for him . . . JON LEUER is a solid stretch four who has a real chance at a rotation spot . . . SAMARDO SAMUELS reportedly dropped some weight in his effort to find some minutes . . . LUKE WALTON is an unofficial member of the coaching staff . . . Undrafted rookie KEVIN JONES could make some noise with his work on the offensive boards . . . LUKE HARANGODY is more of a D-League talent. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO's wrist should be 100 percent, and Sideshow Anderson should be the same relentless, double-double threat he's always been . . . Rookie TYLER ZELLER is a 7-footer with some nice offensive skills -- he can knock down a jump shot in the half court, and run the floor. He'll struggle to defend in space, but made a living drawing charges at UNC, and should be able to play 20+ minutes as a rookie.

*Timberwolves-Cavaliers Preview* ================================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Minnesota (18-29) at Cleveland (16-35), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Minnesota Timberwolves got the best of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the last meeting, though each team had a much different look.

Minnesota looks to avoid a ninth consecutive road loss as Cleveland continues its seven-game homestand Monday night.

Kevin Love scored a season-high 36 points and grabbed 13 rebounds Dec. 7 in the Timberwolves' 91-73 home win over the Cavaliers, who were playing their 10th of an 11-game stretch without Kyrie Irving as he recovered from a broken finger.

Monday's meeting should have a different feel.

Love once again broke his right hand, and Minnesota (18-30) has gone 3-16 since he went down Jan. 3. It also has played the last three games without Andrei Kirilenko (strained right quad), including Sunday's 105-88 loss at Memphis.

J.J. Barea also sat out with a sprained left foot.

Luke Ridnour and Ricky Rubio each scored 17 points for the Wolves, who have lost by an average of 13.3 points during an eight-game road skid.

They committed 20 turnovers Sunday and rank in the bottom third of the league averaging 15.3 per game.

"We've got to take care of the ball," said Dante Cunningham, the only player who logged minutes for Minnesota who did not commit a turnover. "They took advantage of it, and it was hard for us to get back in the game."

Minnesota, which ranks among the league's worst-shooting teams at 43.7 percent, was outscored 16-0 in fast-break points.

"We like to play in the fast break, but (the Grizzlies) get back on the defense pretty good," Rubio said. "They didn't let us get any easy baskets."

While Cleveland is last in the NBA in field-goal percentage defense (47.6) and ranks 28th shooting 42.8 percent from the field, it has committed an average of only 9.3 turnovers over its last three games.

It has played much better since the return of Irving, who will partake in this coming weekend's All-Star festivities in Houston.

The Cavs (16-35) have won six of nine despite Saturday's 111-103 loss to Denver, with Irving averaging 26.9 points and shooting 52.4 percent in that stretch.

Alonzo Gee hit all eight of his field goal attempts and finished with 20 points Saturday, equaling his total from his previous three games combined. Irving scored a game-high 26 points and added seven assists for Cleveland, which had its three-game winning streak snapped.

"I feel like we're still making steps in the right direction," Irving said. "Both groups, the starters and the bench were lacking a bit of energy. We were a step behind.

"Partly, that stems from me just not being aware. Going forward, we just have to learn from this game and get ready for Monday."

Cleveland has lost three of the last four meetings with Minnesota, including a 98-97 defeat Dec. 26, 2010, that ended a four-game home winning streak in the series.

The Cavaliers dropped 12 of their first 15 games at Quicken Loans Arena but have since won six of eight there despite Saturday's defeat.

"In my mind, we didn't take a step back at all," coach Byron Scott said. "I'm not disappointed in our effort."
