Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Wolves-Spurs makeup game to be played April 8

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves pre-game, Wolves news Updated: January 6, 2014 - 11:50 AM

It's official: That Spurs-Wolves game that never was played in Mexico City last month will be played April 8 at Target Center at 7 p.m.

That's a Tuesday and will require the Wolves to play back-to-back home games against the Spurs and Chicago on Wednesday to fit the game in.

Funny, but the Spurs will manage to play that game without it being a back-to-back situation. They had a gap in their schedule that week  between a Sunday home game against Memphis and a Thursday home game against Dallas.

I believe the Wolves pushed to play that game on Monday the 7th so they wouldn't have to play another set of back-to-back games but  I don't think the NBA was too keen on going up against the NCAA title that night.

There are no NBA games scheduled that night.

Season-ticket holders will be contacted in the coming weeks and will be given first chance to buy their tickets for that game before tickets go on a public sale.
