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.
