The centers of the Dominican Republic have faced each other 9 times in their career and it seems that unfortunately they will not see each other this Saturday since Towns is still out due to Covid-19

The Minnesota Timberwolves will visit tonight Oklahoma City Thunder from 9 p.m., Dominican Republic time, 8 p.m. Eastern United States time.

This may have been the tenth historic confrontation between the Dominicans Karl Towns Y Al Horford, but that of the TWolves is still out of action after it was diagnosed with Covid-19 on January 15.

We review the encounters where the Quisqueyanos have faced to date.

9/Nov/2015 Atlanta 107 – Minnesota 117

The pair’s first career meeting after KAT reached the league (17pts and 12rebs) and Al Horford finished with 14 points and 6 rebounds.

25/Nov/2015 Atlanta 95 – Minnesota 99

The pick number of the Draft of that year returned to take the victory despite having a worse game with only 6 points and 6 rebounds, while Horford had a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

21/Nov/2016 Minnesota 93 – Boston 99

The first victory for Horford, now with the Celtics, in these matches, finishing with 20 points and 6 rebounds, while KAT had one of his best games with 27 points and 18 rebounds.

15/Mar/2017 Boston 117 – Minnesota 104

In the second game of the season Karl Towns scored 17, grabbed 14 rebounds and dished out 4 assists, while Horford was close to a triple-double with 20 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists.

5/Ene/2018 Boston 91 – Minnesota 84

We had to wait a little longer in the season to see the Dominicans in the same game but Horford still took the victory with a discreet performance of 7 points, 5 rebounds but added 8 assists, while Towns 25 points and got 23 rebounds in the defeat.

8/Mar/2018 Minnesota 109 – Boston 117

Another victory for Horford who finished with 20 points, 8 rebounds and assists, while KAT had a double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

1/Dic/2018 Minnesota 109 – Boston 118

Score similar to the last game but the same victory for Horford’s team who scored 15 points while Towns had 20 and had 9 rebounds.

2/Ene/2019 Boston 115 – Minnesota 102

Practically a month later, KAT did everything with 28 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists, but could not prevent the victory of the Al Horford Celtics who scored 15 points with 5 rebounds.

30/Oct/2019 Minnesota 95 – Philadelphia 117

New team for Al Horford, same result. Victory for the Sixers in the only game between the two teams, a team where Alfred Joel made his debut with 12 points and 16 rebounds, while Towns only scored 13 and got 6 rebounds.

In the 2020-21 season, there are two meetings to date between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Oklahoma City Thunder, Al Horford’s new team, who for the first time in his career plays in the Western Conference. We will have to wait for the second part of the regular season, if we want to see clashes between the two Dominicans.

The Timberwolves and Thunder play a two-game series on consecutive nights that began Friday, February 5 and continues this Saturday, February 6.
