Unlike last season, there were no unexpected delays in releasing the 2014/15 NBA schedule. I guess the Kevin Love for Andrew Wiggins trade isn’t big enough to cause the entire league to be put on hold. You can find the full Timberwolves’ schedule here on Timberwolves.com. As you likely saw, the team announced the preseason schedule as well about a week and a half ago.
The Wolves open up on the road in Memphis to take on the Grizzlies on Wednesday, 10/29. They quickly return home to take on the Detroit Pistons the following night, the first of nineteen back-to-back series the Wolves will endure over the course of the season.
Here are a few additional games, stretches, and/or storylines worth discussion from the Timberwolves’ regular season schedule:
- The Timberwolves don’t have a home stand or road trip that is longer than four games. Both happen four separate times throughout the season.
- Four, four game home stands: 11/19-11/26, 12/8-12/14, 1/1-1/7, 2/28-3/7
- Four, four game road trips: 12/23-12/30, 1/13-1/19, 3/9-3/15, 4/7-4/11
- The Pups will play the reincarnated Charlotte Hornets in Charlotte on 1/19 and then will host the “new” franchise on 3/22.
- Given trade rumors, the Wolves host the 76ers on 12/3 and then play in Philadelphia on 1/30.
- Given that one, big trade that everyone knows about, the Wolves play in Cleveland on 12/23 and then host the Cavs on 1/31.
- The Timberwolves close the 2014/15 season at home against the New Orleans Hornets … wait, Pelicans, I’m so confused by the last decade, on 4/13 and the Seattle Sonics / Oklahoma City Thunder on 4/15. (Adam Silver needs to be more straightforward than his predecessor on some things …)
We know where this season is heading, let’s hope the front office commits to rebuilding the right way. Do any particular games or stretches catch your eye?
Let’s go Wolves!
