New York Knicks At Minnesota Timberwolves: Knicks Have Lost Three Straight

The New York Knicks (3-5) try to snap a three-game losing streak tonight when they face the Minnesota Timberwolves (2-7) in Minneapolis.

In the Knicks' most recent loss, 122-117 to Golden State, coach Mike D'Antoni blamed turnovers.

"There were a lot of things that hurt us, but the turnovers were the big one," said New York head coach Mike D'Antoni. "They got 30 points off of turnovers and if you take half of them away we did a good job. We have a lot of work to do, no doubt about it."

Minnesota had lost six straight games before defeating the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night, 98-89, in Sacramento.

The Timberwolves are led by Michael Beasley, who averages 18.1 points per game and Kevin Love, who is scoring 16.6 points and pulling in 12.8 rebounds per game.

Coming off his best game of the season, a 33-point, 10-rebound effort against the Warriors, Amare Stoudemire is averaging 21.1 points and 8.0 rebounds per game.
