The Wolves are playing on Christmas day????? Let’s go to KAT and Wiggins for a reaction:
It’s been nearly a month since the Wolves lost to the Chicago Bulls in the Summer League Championship. Between then and now is about as dead a period as NBA fans typically have to endure. But that all changed today, as the NBA announced its official schedule for the 2016-17 season.
This year is especially exciting for the Timberwolves, who will play on Christmas day, a sign of national recognition in scheduling circles, for the first time in franchise history.
