San Antonio Spurs Hosting Minnesota Timberwolves in Regular Season Opener Tonight


  • Spurs Sports and Entertainment
After a brutal preseason marked by injuries to Dejounte Murray and Lonnie Walker IV, the Spurs tip off their regular season with an opening-night showdown against Karl-Anthony Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves. Towns signed a $190 million contract extension last month that will make him the highest paid Latino in league history. For San Antonio, the upcoming campaign could very likely hinge on how quickly new addition DeMar DeRozan acclimates to the Spurs system. A four-time All-Star, DeRozan is a gifted scorer who is capable of going for 30-plus points on any given night. During his last season in Toronto, DeRozan extended his range to the three-point arc, with an additional emphasis on the defensive end. Paired with big man LaMarcus Aldridge, the duo presents a formidable one-two combination that should keep San Antonio in the playoff conversation, despite the loss of key personnel.
