Game 1: Denver Nuggets

TV: KSTC-45

A new era in Timberwolves basketball begins tonight as the Wolves take the court at home against the 1-0 Denver Nuggets. With Garnett long gone, Jefferson locked up for the future, and the rest of the team ready to prove the world wrong, the Wolves will kick off the regular season.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets have already gotten underway, beating the Seattle Sonics 120-103 on Wednesday. The Nuggets look to be one of the playoff teams in the West this season, but don’t expect the Wolves to lay down.

This will be the first time for all of the new players (which is a lot) to show the fans what they have to offer. Expect the Wolves to come out strong, and play hard until the end.

Watch For…

…the starting point guard. With Randy Foye out at least three weeks, the Wolves will look to someone else to run the team. Will Wittman go with Telfair or Jaric on opening day?

…Al Jefferson. With the contract extension behind him, will Jefferson take his nice preseason and continue the trend?

…McCants. With the Ricky Davis trade, and a very nice preseason, Rashad McCants earned the starting SG role. Will the lights out shooting continue for the now healthy McCants?

…the rotation. The Wolves still have not established a very steady rotation off the bench. Look for Smith to be one of the first people into the game, but after that it’s all up in the air.

You Decide…

…what the final score will be.

…the key stats.
