The NBA released the 2015-16 regular season schedule on Wednesday evening and we found out quickly that not only would the Wolves be awarded five non-NBA TV, nationally-televised games, they would also be part of ESPN’s season-opening doubleheader with an appearance in Staples Center against the Los Angeles Lakers.

We’ll take a look at the top-five games on the schedule for the season, considering both individual and team match-ups, time of year, and whether or not the game is nationally-televised, among other things.

Enjoy the list, and stay tuned to Dunking With Wolves as we take you through the rest of your week.
