Wednesday Will Count

Wolves and KG set to meet.

When the Minnesota Timberwolves and Boston Celtics meet up in London on Wednesday, the game will have no affect on the seasonal standings and it will have no affect on how either team plays this season. But, the game will mean something for all of the players traded in July.

This preseason game will mark the first time that the Wolves and Celtics face off since making the blockbuster trade this past off season. The result of the game will not matter, but just because of that, doesn’t mean either team won’t be playing harder than they would in any other normal preseason game.

For the first time since the trade was made, the players will come face to face with those who traded them away. They will also meet back up with their former teammates who they will no longer play alongside this upcoming season. In fact, the teams will be staying at the same hotel, and as Mark Madsen tells us, they basically eat together.

The meal room setup is basically one huge ballroom for both teams with a
partition in the middle. And, the partition is a black cloth hanging down from a
little cable. So, it will be interesting to see how that works out.

So, while this game will not count in the record book, it will bring with it a lot of emotions from both sides, and you can expect every player that was involved in the deal to play as hard as they ever have.
