How to watch Celtics face Karl-Anthony Towns' Timberwolves originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Celtics have a chance to, once again, climb above .500 in their final game of a seven-game homestand that has seen them go 3-3 in games to date.

Luckily for them, they get to take on a fairly easy opponent in the Minnesota Timberwolves.

At this stage in the season, the Timberwolves are sporting a 13-39 record. That is the worst mark in the NBA and is 1.5 games worse than the Houston Rockets, who the C's have demolished twice in as many games. So, the Celtics should hypothetically have a great shot at earning another victory.

Forsberg: Can Tristan Thompson get the C's defense on track?

Of course, nothing is guaranteed in the NBA, but the Celtics are expected to have all of their players available on Friday night save for Evan Fournier. Kemba Walker will be returning from a rest day while everyone aside from Fournier is out of the NBA's health and safety protocols. That should allow them to take advantage of a Timberwolves defense that is allowing 117.3 points per game, the third-highest mark in the league.

Additionally, the T'Wolves will be without their second-leading scorer Malik Beasley. He is out with a hamstring injury, so the Timberwolves will have to find a way to replace his 19.6 points per game production.

While Karl-Anthony Towns will provide a test to the C's front line and rookie Anthony Edwards will be fun to watch, the C's should be able to emerge with the win. It would be good if they could start quickly on offense, but so long as they continue to move the ball and get open shots, they will hold the advantage in this one, even without Fournier.
