Early Thoughts on the Schedule

The Timberwolves schedule is out! I’ll have the schedule posted on this page here, which you can also find on the tabs up on the right.

Notable so far as I go through… (And more via twitter on the right until I can put a post together)

LeBron comes to town for the Wolves 2nd game on October 30th and K.G. is right behind on November 4th.

The first national television. game won’t be until Novemeber 27th against the Phoenix Suns on ESPN. After that it’s another month until they take on the Washington Wizards at Target Center on December 26th which will be on NBATV. And that does it for Wolves games on national television.

Bassy and Mad Dog make their return to Target Center on December 16th.

The Wolves will play New Year’s day against the defending Eastern Conference Champions Orlando Magic at home.

Watch out for the Wolves to be able to go on a similar stretch as they did last year in January this season in January and February:

Of their 28 games during the two months only 8 are against teams with a record of over .500 last year.

March on the other hand should be tough as of the 14 games they have 7 against Western Conference Playoff Teams from last year, 1 against Eastern Conference Champs Orlando, and 2 against should be back in the playoffs this year Phoenix.

As for April the Wolves have 2 home games to mark down on your calendars (and to buy tickets for) as both Dwyane Wade (April 3rd) and Kobe Bryant (April 9th) make their solo appearences at Target Center.
