Time for the first second game of the season in Brooklyn Nets history! The Nets are set to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight at Barclays Center without their starting small forward, Gerald Wallace. The Timberwolves come in with a host of injuries -- Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, and now J.J. Barea will all sit out this evening.

Minnesota, like Brooklyn, has undergone an offseason facelift. Joining me to talk about tonight's game is Zach Harper, Timberwolves blogger for A Wolf Among Wolves and CBS Sports' Eye On Basketball blog. He also lives in your computer, so make sure to turn it off at night so he can sleep.

Like with James Herbert, Zach and I will go one-on-one: I ask him three questions about the Timberwolves, and he asks me three on the Nets.
