#1 – Wolves vs. Golden State Warriors – Thursday, November 12th

Defending NBA champions. At Target Center. Thursday night on TNT — the lone TNT game for the Wolves on the season.

And don’t forget — after being blown out in the first two match-ups against the Warriors in 2014-15, the Wolves played the eventual champs tough later in the year. On February 11th, the Wolves lost to Golden State by just three points at Target Center, and in the third-to-last game of the year the Warriors beat Minnesota by nine in Oakland.

The Wolves will be eight games into the season at this point, and given relative health this game will be an interesting barometer for what kind of team Flip Saunders will have for the season.
