2011-12 TIMBERWOLVES SCHEDULE

Chart: Highlights of the Wolves schedule

  • December 10, 2011 - 11:46 PM

The Timberwolves' lockout-shortened 66-game schedule was released last week. Here are the highlights:

• They open Dec. 26 at Target Center against Oklahoma City. They will play six of their first seven games at home, but it's brutally tough.

• LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Miami arrive in the season's third game, Dec. 30.

• Kobe Bryant and the Lakers visit twice: Jan. 29 and March 9.

• The Wolves' six nationally televised games are their most since 2005-06.

• The Wolves will play on three consecutive nights twice.

• Their last game is April 26, about two weeks later than last year's finale.
