Nearly 20 years after they first drafted him out of high school, the Minnesota Timberwolves reunited with Kevin Garnett in 2015. The Big Ticket made his return to bolster the Wolves’ frontline and to provide veteran leadership for a youthful team that’s yet to taste playoff success since KG’s first stint in Minnesota. The dazzling Ricky Rubio will act as playmaker once again this season and he’ll have plenty of options on the floor, from the sharpshooting Kevin Martin to superstar-in-the-making Andrew Wiggins. With Nikola Pekovic anchoring the paint, there’s no telling how far these Minnesota Timberwolves can go in this year’s Western Conference.

Minnesota Timberwolves 2015-2016 News and Updates
8/12/15 - The 2014-2015 season was a sad time to be a fan of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The wolf pack had a regrettable year, finishing fifth in the Northwest Division with a humiliating 16-66 record. With the recent release of the official NBA 2015-2016 schedule, will the Timberwolves have what it takes to turn their luck around? Fortunately, they’ll have an easy start to the season albeit on the road. First, they will face the Los Angeles Lakers, who will be getting used to having their star shooting guard Kobe Bryant back. Then, they’ll take on the Denver Nuggets, who finished with an equally unremarkable record last year. Finally, they will play the Portland Trailblazers at home on Monday, November 2. Tickets to the first home game of the season are extremely limited and start at $57.
4/8/15 - With a rich field expected to be available in the NBA Draft this summer, the Minnesota Timberwolves have to be hoping for at least one big win – the No. 1 overall pick in the draft lottery. ESPN’s projections place the T-Wolves with the second highest odds of getting that coveted first pick, behind the N.Y. Knicks.
3/25/15 - It’s gotten so bad for the Minnesota Timberwolves this season, they had to sign a player to a temporary contract based on his location – New York City. The T-Wolves, decimated by injuries, needed a player to suit up – and fast – for their game at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks; Sean Kilpatrick, who was playing for Delaware of the D-League, was able to get to the arena 45 minutes before tip-off to fill that mandatory eighth player spot on the bench.
3/17/15 - The Minnesota Timberwolves will be looking to end their five game losing streak when they play against the Raptors on March 18. Some of the Timberwolves' current problems is simply due to a too-long injured player list, which is also affecting practices and preventing the players from getting adequate rest. For the most recent game against the Nets, the Timberwolves had only eight players who were healthy, and three of their starters were sitting out due to injury, including Kevin Garnett who missed his fifth game in a row. The team's high scorers were Kevin Martin, who had 23 points, and Zack LaVine, who had 20. Adreian Payne brought the Timberwolves ahead of the Nets, but it was short lived. Tickets to the game against the Raptors are still on sell, starting at $38.
3/11/15 - Another viral feel-good story out of Minnesota, this time involving the Timberwolves and a fan. Seems a teenage fan of the former Seattle SuperSonics – who moved to Oklahoma City in 2008 – wrote letters to the other 29 teams in the league, looking for a new team to back; the T-Wolves were the only one of the 29 to respond to him, sending him a letter and an autographed basketball.
3/4/15 - Currently on a three-game losing streak, the Minnesota Timberwolves have lost a game to the L.A. Lakers in the Western Conference standings. The T-wolves are now three games behind the Lakers, nd 33 ½ games in arrears of conference leading Golden State.
2/25/15 - Wins have been few and far between for the Minnesota Timberwolves, who remain one of the league’s bottom-dwelling teams at the moment. But, the T-wolves are just two games behind the L.A. Lakers for the cellar of the Western Conference; as well, the team used last week’s trading deadline to stockpile more draft picks for future use.
2/19/15 - He’s coming back to where it all started for him, nearly 20 years ago. In 1995, the Minnesota Timberwolves took a lanky high schooler named Kevin Garnett with the fifth overall pick. Flash forward to the 2015 trade deadline, and KG is coming back to the T-wolves, after agreeing to drop his no-trade clause in his contract with Brooklyn.
2/4/15 - This season is turning into a nightmare for the Minnesota Timberwolves, who at the moment are the only NBA squad yet to crack the 10-win plateau. The T-Wolves are currently 8-40, five games behind their next nearest Western Conference rival, and have fallen in their last three straight.
1/28/15 - The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of three teams who have yet to break the 10-win plateau so far this season. The T-Wolves are 7-37 at this juncture of the season, which puts them a half game below the East’s two lagging teams, New York and Philadelphia who are both 8-37.
1/21/15 - After snapping a lengthy losing streak against Indiana earlier this month, the Minnesota Timberwolves have dropped two of their last three, all on the road. The T-wolves’ last win came last Saturday at Denver, where they prevailed 113-105 over the Nuggets.
1/14/15 - With their road win Tuesday night over struggling Indiana, the Minnesota Timberwolves broke a 15-game losing streak – a streak only equaled up to that point by New York’s string of futility this season. Still, the T-Wolves are a far cry from where they were at this point last season.
1/7/15 - Buried in the midst of a 12 game losing streak, the Minnesota Timberwolves are a team in need of defensive work. The T-wolves are dead last in the NBA in points allowed per game (108.5), and are also 27th in rebounding (40.9 rebounds per game average).
12/17/14 - Veteran Ronny Turiaf underwent successful hip surgery earlier this week, which means the 10-th year player from Gonzaga will miss the remainder of the season for the Minnesota Timberwolves. This is not the first time Turiaf has been out for the T-Wolves; last season he suffered an elbow injury which limited him to 33 games.
12/10/14 - In a conference where hot teams abound (Golden State, Portland, Memphis, the L.A. Clippers), the Minnesota Timberwolves are as cold as the Minneapolis weather these days. The T-Wolves, at 4-16, have the worst record in the West, and the longest current losing streak (six games), as well as the lowest scoring differential in the conference as well (minus-10.7).
12/3/14 - With just four wins, the Minnesota Timberwolves now have the fewest victories in the Western Conference at this point in the season. While the offense is scoring a relatively healthy 100.8 points per game on average (good for 15th in the league), the league-worst defense (111.2 points per agme allowes per average) is killing the T-Wolves.
11/19/14 - It is becoming clear just what Kevin Love meant to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The T-Wolves are one of two teams with just two wins so far this season, the other being the L.A. Lakers.
11/12/14 - This week, the Minnesota Timberwolves will square off against Houston in the first regular season game in Mexico since 1997. The T-wolves were originally scheduled to play San Antonio last season, but a short circuit in Arena Ciudad de Mexico caused the game to be cancelled.
10/29/14 - After a close loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on opening night, the Minnesota Timberwolves rallied to win against the Detroit Pistons on October 30. The game quickly built up to the Pistons having a 19 point lead by the final period and the Timberwolves steadily and assuredly took back the game after that. This 97-91 victory was due in no small part to the efforts of Thaddeus Young who finished the game with 19 points and five rebounds. Young also broke past the tie of 88-88 late in the game by nailing a three-pointer. Mo Williams then hit a driving layup to push the Timberwolves to a 93-88 lead that let them coast until the finish. Being the biggest scorer on the team in the first two games, Young is proving to be the player to watch this season as the Timberwolves build their wins throughout the season. Tickets are available for upcoming games starting at $56.
8/26/14 - The 2014-2015 Minnesota Timberwolves schedule recently released, and the 82-game slate is lined with must-see matchups. The new-look T-Wolves will get their start on the road, with an Oct. 29 game against the Grizzlies in Memphis, while their home opener will be opposite Detroit on Oct. 30. All eyes will be on the Jan. 31 Timberwolves-Cavaliers game, when LeBron James and Kevin Love make their one and only appearance in Minnesota. Target Center will get some exciting superstar play, with Derrick Rose and the Bulls on Nov. 1, Kobe Bryant and the Lakes on Apr. 10, and fellow former T-wolves player Kevin Garnett visiting with Brooklyn on Mar. 16. Is Andrew Wiggins destined for a Rookie of the Year season? Find out with Minnesota Timberwolves tickets today!
Last year’s campaign looked much like the Minnesota Timberwolves’ previous 9—which isn’t a good thing. For the tenth year in a row, Minny fell short of their preseason aspirations of making the playoffs in the West despite finishing with the league’s third-best points per game production, and playing with the fourth fastest pace. Heading into the 2014 offseason, the Minnesota Timberwolves made the necessary changes to propel them from a good team in their conference, to a great team in the NBA.
Minny kicked off the offseason by hiring Flip Saunders as head coach, highly successful in his former years at Minnesota, and drafted UCLA’s Zach LaVine at No.13 overall. By far, the biggest splash made by the T-Wolves in 2014 setting love free—Kevin Love, that is. The top power forward is officially a Cavalier, linking him up with LeBron James to instantly create a playoff-ready Cleveland team. In return, the Timberwolves are getting No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett from Cleveland, as well as Thaddeus Young from Philadelphia. The Target Center squad is now in an exciting rebuild-mode, with a shining core of young players that will develop into formidable threats in the West.

4/18/14 - Nearly everyone who played scored in double figures for the Minnesota Timberwolves in their season-ending game with Utah – but in the end it was the Jazz who were victorious in double overtime, 136-130. Only Gorgui Dieng (four points, but seven boards and two blocks) and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (0 points off the bench, but one rebound and one assist) failed to tally double figures for the T-wolves, who got 36 points from Kevin Martin. Kevin Love had yet another double-double – nearly a triple-double – on 19 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists; Ricky Rubio chipped in 14 points, and Corey Brewer added 11 points. For the reserves, Ronny Turiaf chipped in 12 points, eight boards, and three blocks; Dante Cunningham collected 13 points; Robbie Hummel had 10 points and nine rebounds; and Alexey Shved had 11 points to round out the scoring.
4/14/14 - At exactly .500 – 39 wins and 39 losses – if the Minnesota Timberwolves were in the East, they would have locked up a playoff spot by now. As it is, they are 10th in the uber-competitive West, and will not be in the postseason. The T-Wolves fell at home to Chicago 102-87 on April 9; while everyone who played scored at least two points, just three players – starters Kevin Love (17), Ricky Rubio (15) and reserve Ronny Turiaf (11) – were able to break double-figure scoring. Love combined his points with 10 boards for a double-double; Gorgui Dieng, who had just nine points, made his presence felt in other ways, combining eight rebounds with three blocked shots.
4/7/14 - If they were in the Eastern Conference, they would be a half game up on Charlotte. But the Minnesota Timberwolves are out of the running in the Western Conference playoff chase, so the best they can do is play spoiler – a role which they played to perfection in defeating Memphis, 102-88, on April 2. Kevin Love notched a triple-double for the T-wolves, racking up 24 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists, along with one steal and one rejection; Gorqui Dieng nearly had a double-double, scoring eight points and clearing nine boards. Kevin Martin broke through the 20-point plateau as well for Minnesota, with 21, while Ricky Rubio had 14 points, seven assists, three rebounds, and three steals.
3/28/14 - As Samuel Clemens once wrote, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics.” Case in point: the Minnesota Timberwolves. The T-wolves are fourth in the NBA in points scored per game, sixth in assists per game, and eighth in rebounding per game…but 24th in the league in points allowed per game. All this adds up to a .500 record, and also-ran status in the highly competitive Western Conference. The T-wolves did win their most recent contest, 107-83, against the East’s #8 squad, Atlanta, led by Gorgui Dueng’s double-double of 15 points and 15 rebounds. Kevin Love also had a double-double, combining 14 points and 12 boards, while Ricky Rubio dished off 10 assists.
3/21/14 - Despite a 20-20 double-double (22 points, 21 rebounds) from rookie center Gorgui Dieng, and 29 points from All Star Kevin Love, the Minnesota Timberwolves didn’t have enough weapons to stop slow-starting Houston on March 20, 129-106. In addition to his team high scoring, Love also contributed six rebounds, five assists, a steal, and a pair of blocked shots; point guard Ricky Rubio contributed eight dishes to go along with five points. The night before, against Dallas, Rubio notched his third triple-double of of his career, racking up 22 points, 15 assists, and 10 boards in the T-wolves’ 123-122 overtime win over Dallas.
3/14/14 - Even though the team has been alternating wins and losses over their last five games, the Minnesota Timberwolves are 7-3 in their last 10, and with their 112-101 come from behind win at home in the Target Center over East cellar-dwellers Milwaukee, have moved to just 5 ½ games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Kevin Love (26 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, three blocks) and Ricky Rubio (11 points, 10 assists, three steals) had double-doubles for the T’wolves; while Kevin Martin went for 26 points and J.J. Barea added 19 points in the winning effort for Minnesota.
3/10/14 - It gets pretty bad when the New York Knicks break their extended losing streak against you, but that’s just what happened to the Minnesota Timberwolves on March 5. Even though all five T’wolves starters broke double figures in scoring, led by Kevin Love’s 19, and Minnesota outscored New York in the paint 48-38 and out-rebounded the Knicks, 47-39, the Timberwolves just had no answer for Carmelo Anthony’s 33 points, and the Knicks used a 17-4 run to put Minnesota away.
3/3/14 - Winners of four out of their last five games, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ most recent victim was Phoenix. Kevin Love led all scorers, exploding for 33 points, 13 rebounds, nine assists (nearly missing a triple double) and even a pair of blocked shots for the T’wolves. Shabazz Muhammad added 20 points in a reserve role for Minnesota; Ricky Rubio handed out 11 assists as well. Off the court, Ronny Turiaf is being listed as out indefinitely with a right knee bone bruise discovered by an MRI on February 23. Turiaf suffered the injury in the T’wolves February 22 win over Indiana.
2/21/14 - Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves had a productive All Star weekend. Although he failed to win the three point contest, finishing in the middle of the pack behind winner Marco Balinelli; during Sunday’s All Star Game, Love played 33 minutes in the West’s losing effort, chipping in 13 points and nine rebounds. After the break, though, Love lit up the East’s leaders, Indiana, for 42 points and 16 boards in a big 104-91 win over the Pacers. Ricky Rubio contributed 17 assists and seven rebounds for the Timberwolves’ effort.
2/11/14 - Some good news, some not so good for the Minnesota Timberwolves: The good news is that Kevin Love, already selected as an All Star starter for the West, will also participate in the Saturday night slam dunk contest. Love is listed as day to day on the T-wolves injury report, nursing a bruised left quadriceps muscle. The bad news: The T-wolves were manhandled by Houston earlier in the week, 107-89. Head coach Rick Adelman has missed the last several days, including the loss to Houston, for personal reasons; filling in for him was assistant Terry Porter.
2/4/14 - Representing the Minnesota Timberwolves in this month’s NBA All Star Game in New Orleans as one of the Western Conference’s starters, power forward Kevin Love is having the best year of his career so far. Love, a product of UCLA, is averaging a double-double, scoring at an average of 25.5 points per game clip while clearing 13.1 rebounds per game. Point guard Ricky Rubio is averaging 8.2 assists per game and 2.6 steals per game for the T-Wolves.
1/21/14 - Minnesota Timberwolves are sitting with a 19-21 record, giving them enough time to improve their standing in the tough Western Conference before playoffs. On Saturday the TWolves beat the Jazz to stop their three game losing skid, and they’ll play Utah again tonight with hopes of a repeat victory. Minnesota won’t be back in Minneapolis until Jan 29 to take on New Orleans (get-in for just $2), followed by a Jan 31 game against Memphis (get-in for $9). The Wolves will have to make the most of superstar Kevin Love (top five in NBA for scoring & rebounding), with even more rumors mounting about the UCLA product’s eventual departure from the team. Ricky Rubio is in a funk this year to boot; with high expectations entering the season as the unquestioned starter at point guard, the 23-year old is in desperate need of a spark to get his confidence back! It’s crunch time now, but with less than half a season left, can the Wolves snap out of their late-game collapses? Score some Minnesota Timberwolves tickets and help this talented team get the job done!
After starting the season with three straight wins, the Timberwolves have slipped up in the last couple weeks and are now 5-3, but the squad is still on track for a winning season and one of the best starts in franchise history. Recently, the Timberwolves paid a visit to Staples Center, where they defeated the Lakers by a large margin (113-90) and lost to the Clippers by a slight one (107-109). Coming up are some of Minnesota's most eagerly awaited games: Nov 22, the Wolves will host the Brooklyn Nets, toting former T-wolves center, Kevin Garnett. The next day (Nov 23) Minnesota will meet the Houston Rockets on the road, who are now coached by previous Timberwolves’ GM and coach, Kevin McHale, a man that brewed up bad blood with the organization after the illegal contract scandal with Joe Smith a decade ago.
The Timberwolves are looking to get back to their first postseason since 2004 and will do so under the leadership of 2x NBA All-Star Kevin Love. Another former UCLA Bruin will play for Minnesota this season; small forward Shabazz Muhammad was added to the Minnesota Timberwolves roster this offseason. Also a first round pick, Gorgui Dieng from Louisville was selected. The most expensive game this season at Target Center will be played against the Lakers on 3/28 (avg. $352). The Timberwolves have lost 22 games straight to the Lakers; this end-of-March matchup will be the final of the season for the two teams. The 2/4 matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers at home is averaging much less, $153.
3/6/13 - Since winning the National Basketball Association's old Midwest Division in 2005 before a round of realignment, the Minnesota Timberwolves have undergone a gradual decline, culminating in three consecutive fifth-place finishes in the current Northwest Division, which they share with Oklahoma City, Denver, Utah, and Portland. Forward Kevin Love is the T-Wolves offensive leader, tops on the team in scoring average and rebounding despite only playing about a third of the team's games due to injury; while Spanish star Ricky Rubio has shown himself to be quite effective at the point, leading the squad in assists and steals. Also contributing offensively is former Utah Jazz star Andrei Kirilenko; along with Nikola Petkovic and Luke Ridnour. Coming off the bench to provide support are J.J. Barea, Dante Cunningham, and shot blocker Greg Stiemsma. Coach Rick Adelman has to work on his team's scoring and points allowed, both of which are in the bottom half league-wide. While the T-Wolves are improved over the last couple of seasons, they still have some work to do to get back to respectability.
At the beginning of the season, Minnesota Timberwolves tickets were the cheapest in the League, averaging $41, just about 1/3 the cost of average NBA tickets. All Timberwolves games are averaging under $100 with cheap Timberwolves tickets available for $30 or less. Lakers Timberwolves tickets are two of the three most expensive games on the MN Timberwolves schedule at $94 (2/1) and $93 (3/27). On the road, MN Timberwolves tickets average double that of Target Center tickets.
