2018 Timberwolves Season Preview
Fun stat when you’re out and about – the Wolves last made the playoffs when Karl-Anthony Towns was 8 years old. The Minnesota Timberwolves offseason additions of Jeff Teague and Jimmy Butler should make this Minnesota squad better off than their 2016/17 campaign. A playoff spot is in play for Minnesota, which would please Anthony-Towns and his childhood memories. Butler alone provides a focal point on offense and only Golden State will enter this season with three players that averaged 20 points plus per game. Not bad, but if the Timberwolves are to have any semblance of success their defense needs to step up. The Minnesota Timberwolves ranked number 27 last season (yikes), after giving up 112 points per 100 possessions. Towns needs to come up bigger and Anthony Wiggins (the former No. 1 pick in 2014) needs to start playing like a former number 1 pick. Taj Gibson was a savvy pick-up and ex Bull’s head coach Tom Thibodeau is getting his guys in place to make another run at it. All signs point due north for this Wolves crew. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center or supporting the Timberwolves on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all 2017-2018 Minnesota Timberwolves tickets, including home and away games.

Timberwolves in the NBA Finals, Western Conference Finals and NBA Playoffs
The Timberwolves have been in the NBA since 1989 and still searching for their first NBA and Western Conference title.

2016 Minnesota Timberwolves Season Preview
After a disappointing season for the Minnesota Timberwolves, all eyes will be on them as they enter the 2016-2017 season with a new excellent head coach and a group of talented young players. Last season, the Timberwolves finished with a regular season record of 29-53 and their 12th consecutive year out of the NBA playoffs. With head coach Tom Thibodeau joining Minnesota this season, there is plenty excitement following him and his ability to get the Timberwolves into the playoffs due to his proven track record as a coach. With No. 1 overall picks, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, the Timberwolves team dynamic will improve. Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine will also join the young Minnesota team as they climb the West standings this season. This will be an exciting season for Timberwolves fans to watch their team, and TicketCity will have some of the best deals on home and away Minnesota Timberwolves’ tickets!
2015 Minnesota Timberwolves Season Preview
Last season was a year of transition for the Minnesota Timberwolves, that saw longtime star Kevin Love depart Minnesota. In return, the Timberwolves welcomed their star of the future in Andrew Wiggins, and brought back maybe the most beloved Timberwolf of all time in Kevin Garnett. Minnesota also drafted highly touted prospect Karl-Anthony Towns, who, along with Wiggins, has the potential to be the face of the franchise for the next decade. With a maturing Ricky Rubio orchestrating the offense, the 2015-16 Minnesota Timberwolves have a surprisingly talented roster, with a mixture of young stars and veterans and could be one of the surprise teams in the Western Conference.
2014 Minnesota Timberwolves Season Preview
The Minnesota Timberwolves had their best season since 2005 last season. Behind Kevin Love’s unbelievably consistent play, the Timberwolves finished the season with 40 wins for the first time in almost a decade. Despite this success, the Minnesota Timberwolves missed the NBA playoffs for the 10th straight season. Maybe no team in the Western Conference experienced the level on change that the Minnesota Timberwolves did this past offseason. Gone from Minnesota are head coach Rick Adelman and superstar Kevin Love. The Timberwolves welcomed Flip Saunders back as head coach and traded for number 1 overall picks Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins. Minnesota also added Rookies Zach LaVine and Gregg Robinson III, as well as veterans Thaddeus Young and Mo Williams. The Minnesota Timberwolves are building a strong core for the future and will be very young in 2014-15. But the combination of Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett should provide a major spark for Timberwolves and Flip Saunders has already proven he can take Minnesota to the NBA playoffs.
2013 Minnesota Timberwolves Season Preview
It was another season full of promise but full of injuries for Minnesota, as the T-Wolves look forward to a 2013-14 season with its most talented crew of players since the Garnett-Marbury era. Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic are strong offensive big men, but they’ll need to step up on the defensive side if Minnesota wants any chance of winning on a consistent basis. They T-Wolves added Kevin Martin and Corey Brewer to the mix, as well as a draft-and-trade for Shabazz Muhammad from UCLA. The Wolves will kick off the season with a tough test against the Thunder at the Target Center on Nov. 1. Other key home games will be vs. Kevin Garnett and Brooklyn on Nov. 22, vs. San Antonio and Miami on Dec. 4 & 7 and vs. Houston on Feb. 10.
2012 Minnesota Timberwolves Season Preview
While the 2011-12 Minnesota Timberwolves 26-40 finish didn't exactly look impressive on the stat sheet, the team saw some signs of significant growth and hope for the future during the campaign. The season brought the debut of point guard Ricky Rubio, who was a contender for the NBA Rookie of the Year Award before tearing his ACL in a collision with Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers. The T-Wolves were as busy as ever during the offseason, making a flurry of trades to improve the team's depth and become a factor in the Western Conference playoff picture. The Timberwolves remade practically the entire bottom half of their roster, trading away a first round pick in the draft to the Rockets for shooting guard Chase Budinger, who could improve the team's three point percentages. The team dropped the expiring deals of Michael Beasley, Anthony Tolliver and Anthony Randolph, but weren't able to make a huge splash on a top tier free agent. Instead, general manager David Kahn signed talented foreign players like guard Alexey Shved and forward Andre Kirilenko. The T-Wolves also brought in former Trail Blazer Brandon Roy and swung a deal for Memphis forward Dante Cunningham. Looking at the Timberwolves' starting lineup, with Ricky Rubio expected to be out until December, the task of leading the offense falls on Luke Ridnour. Ridnour has proven to be a savvy veteran point guard over the years and could prove to be invaluable when Rubio returns. At forward, the offense revolves around All-Star Kevin Love and Derrick Williams, who will continue to see plenty of action in the paint. At center, Nikola Pekovic has proven to be a worthy enforcer under the net, and the team also signed Greg Stiemsma in the offseason to reinforce the depth at the position. With teams all over the Western Conference making significant improvements, the Timberwolves have stuck to their plan and are clearly in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race. With solid starters like Love, Derrick Williams, Ridnour and the eventual return of Ricky Rubio, the T-Wolves may have put together a rare form of team basketball that could overcome the star-packed rosters that have dominated play over recent years. With a bevy of proven veterans, role players and young talent, the T-Wolves have a compelling lineup of players from various backgrounds that could come together come playoff time and surprise a lot of people.
2011 Minnesota Timberwolves Season Preview
One of the biggest revelations in the league last year was the breakout season Timberwolves center Kevin Love had, which was kicked off by a 31-31 night against the Knicks early in the season. Love would blow up, averaging 20 points and 15 rebounds a night. It was that moment against the Knicks, however, that led to Love owning this team of misfits. His supporting cast includes Michael Beasley, the small forward who has flashes of brilliance amidst stretches of not-so-much; Wesley Johnson and Luke Ridnour’s guard play working well outside but not inside; and Derrick Williams, who share in Love’s inability to block shots. If the team can bring its defensive game up slightly, it will be a large step in bringing Minnesota back into the playoff fray.
2010 Minnesota Timberwolves Season Preview
It's been a long time since fans of the Minnesota Timberwolves have had something to cheer about. They have not made the playoffs since 2004, and finished last year a dismal 15-67. The Timberwolves have seemingly been in a perpetual state of rebuilding, and if their talented group of young players is going to put it all together, this is the year to do it. Minnesota has one of the more athletic teams in the league, led by second-year guard Jonny Flynn and former All-American center Kevin Love. Along with Love and Flynn, Michael Beasley and Al Jefferson are both reliable scorers, and the team will likely have no trouble scoring on the fast break. However, they need to improve defensively. The Timberwolves ranked second-to-last in points allowed last year, surrender more than 107 points a game. Minnesota also had a fairly successful draft by landing Syracuse standout and 2010 Big East Player of the Year Wesley Johnson. Having Johnson playing with Beasley pairs two of the best college players of the last five years, and could lead to an explosive offense.
2009 Minnesota Timberwolves Season Preview
The Minnesota Timberwolves fans should be excited to get play under way on the 2009-2010 NBA season. The Twolves had an up & down offseason, signing new Head Coach Kurt Rambis and then losing top draft pick Ricky Rubio. The season should be better in Minnesota than any recent year, because Rambis has a talented roster that is ready to compete for a playoff spot out West. The Timberwolves will count on new acquisition Antonio Daniels, star Al Jefferson and 2nd year player Kevin Love to lead the squad to a winning record.
2009 Minnesota Timberwolves Season Preview
The Minnesota Timberwolves are a team to get behind this season in the NBA. It could be argued there is no other team with more future potential that than the Minnesota Timberwolves. The departure of Kevin Garnett to the Boston Celtics marked the end of an era in Minneapolis, and for many it’s a welcome change. A brand new lineup, including a strong frontcourt for a team in rebuilding mode, will make for an exciting season for Minnesota Timberwolves fans as they watch for the new stars and leaders of the next era of basketball in Minnesota to step forward.
