The Wolves have had a rough last decade or so, but they’ve been pretty reliable in their home openers lately. They’ve won in their Target Center season debut in four of the past five years. They’ll try to make it five of six Friday against Utah.

If you aren’t at the renovated Target Center to see the Wolves opener, you can of course still watch on TV (7 p.m., FSN).
