2. Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Golden State Warriors – Wed, Nov. 8
Player to watch: Jimmy Butler (Wolves)
This Western Conference matchup spotlights one of the up-and-coming teams in the league against the model of NBA success. The Timberwolves have been building their team in the same mold as the Warriors, working to develop young talent into stars with recent Rookies of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, much like the Warriors did with players like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. Obviously the Wolves have a long way to go, but with Jimmy Butler coming over from the Bulls in a trade in the off-season, Minnesota has reasons to be excited about 2017-18 and beyond.
They’ll have a shot to prove if that hype is justified in Oakland on Wednesday, November 8 at 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
