Four Nationally Televised Contests and a Trip to Mexico City Highlight Timberwolves 2014-15 Schedule
The Minnesota Timberwolves announced their 2014-2015 schedule, which is highlighted by four nationally televised games and a trip to Mexico City.
Minnesota will have four four-game homestands over the course of the season, but is also matched with four four-game road trips.
Nationally, the Timberwolves will play two games on ESPN and two games on NBA TV. They will make their first national appearance on November 1st against Chicago (NBA TV). On November 12, Minnesota will take on Houston in Mexico City on ESPN. They will finish their national TV appearances against January 7th against Phoenix (ESPN), and on April 10th against the Lakers (NBA TV).
For those wanting to see Kevin Love make his return to Minnesota (oh yeah, he'll be bringing LeBron also), the Cavaliers will take on the Timberwolves on January 31st.
With the departure of Love, the Timberwolves were still able to secure a few national TV appearances. With the help of Andrew Wiggins, the Wolves have a young core that people are interested in watching. The team might not be overly successful, but the hopefully youth movement of the team has people excited. Minnesota avoided being shutout of national TV appearances like Philadelphia, Orlando, and Milwaukee.
The season will open on October 29th as they travel to Memphis.
