The Minnesota Timberwolves play their first game of the regular season tonight against Oklahoma City at the Target Center. The season was supposed to start two months ago, but was delayed because of the labor dispute between the players and owners.
This year, teams will play fewer games than usual and the games will be packed closer together. For example, in early January, the Wolves will play on three consecutive nights in three different cities.
