Spurs vs. Timberwolves

Spurs basketball officially tips off at the AT&T Center on opening night with San Antonio hosting Minnesota in an early season showdown between prospective Western Conference contenders. During an off-season marked by player movement, the Timberwolves landed All-Star Jimmy Butler in a trade with the Bulls, along with standouts Jamal Crawford, Taj Gibson, and Jeff Teague via free agency. NBA general managers recently voted Karl-Anthony Towns, the centerpiece for the young Wolves, as the player “most likely to have a breakout season.” Towns has put up Tim Duncan numbers in his first two seasons and is hoping for his first glance at playoff glory. For the Spurs it’s all about Kawhi Leonard, who, after sitting out the preseason with a thigh injury, will likely make his season debut challenging Butler. $18-$661.25, 8:30pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy., (210) 444-5000, attcenter.com. — M.
