It’s the first week of the NBA season with great match ups all around. In this one it’s a big Western Conference showdown for each teams first game.
The Minnesota Timberwolves make the trip to San Antonio to take on the Spurs. The Spurs have won nine of the last ten games played between the two teams.
The Minnesota Timberwolves come into this game with high expectations, and most people believe this team will be in the playoffs this year.
Tom Thibodeau is known as a defensive coach, but last years the Timberwolves weren’t good on that side of the court.
But this season he brought in Jimmy Butler who he hopes will help improves the teams defense, because if this the defense can defend better, this is going to be a scary group.
Led by Karl Anthony-Towns and Andrew Wiggins this team has no issues scoring, but to take the next step forward it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the floor.
One thing to watch in this game is how well the new group has blended together. They had a weird preseason schedule and haven’t had a game in well over a week.
They can’t afford to get out to a slow start against the Spurs if they expect any chance to pull the upset.
San Antonio Spurs
On the other side of this match up is the San Antonio Spurs who have high hopes for this season, but will be a little short handed in this game.
Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker are both out for this game, and Dejounte Murray is questionable. If Murray isn’t able to go this team is going to be really short handed at the point guard position.
Leonard is dealing with right quad tendinopathy and they will really miss his presence on not only on the offensive side, but more so on the defensive side of the ball.
But this team team still has a lot of talent, and with as much as Popp rest’s his players, they are used to playing without all their starters most nights, but they are going to need to have other guys to step up.
To win this game the Spurs defense is going to need to step up, especially trying to slow down Karl Anthony-Towns.
