The Timberwolves were 0-4 against San Antonio last season, so the game certainly is in San Antonio’s favour. In fact, the Spurs have won their last 11 games against the Wolves. The worst possible thing the Wolves can do is go into the game with a defeatist attitude. They need to truly believe that they can end the run, and show what they’re made of. This is a different Wolves team anyway, with the addition of Jimmy Butler, things are looking bright for them. They need to use the new addition as a boost that will lead them to the win. Once again though, they can’t rely on one player. The Wolves have to work as a unit if they want to defeat the Spurs. With some key players out for San Antonio, the Wolves have a chance.
This is a season opener for the Spurs, who are currently 0-0. The Spurs have a lot of ability and definitely know how to give teams trouble. The main issue is that they will be without Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker. The sheer offensive ability of Leonard and the techinical ability of Parker will certainly be missed, but the Spurs are quite versatile so they should be able to adjust to the absence. You can’t be dependant on any player on this league, or you’ll run into huge problems.
