The Minnesota Timberwolves lost Kevin Love via trade this past summer, but that shouldn’t take any of their value away in the eyes of fans. Instead, fans should get to see their team at a discount, while watching some exciting talent develop along the way.
Ricky Rubio and Nikola Pekovic are already in place to help Minnesota stay competitive, while the future resides in Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine and Anthony Bennett. That mixture of upside and competitiveness gives Timberwolves tickets some serious value for the 2014-15 NBA season, especially if Minnesota can somehow make a playoff push.
It’s too early to know how good this team can be, but already in November fans should be feeling the value. Let’s see just how much value is to be had as we break down the cheapest and most expensive Timberwolves games this month:
Cheapest – @ New Orleans Pelicans (11/14/14) | Average Ticket Price: $38 | Get-in Ticket Price: $3
Timberwolves tickets are at their lowest on November 14th, when they head to Louisiana to take on Anthony Davis and the Pelicans. The Pelicans aren’t a huge threat offensively, but The Brow teams up with center Omer Asik to form a tough interior defense.
New Orleans could be a tough matchup for the Wolves down low, so what they get out of center Nikola Pekovic could go a long way in telling us how this one turns out. While that will definitely be key, Minnesota should still be able to put up points from the outside. If they can do that, New Orleans could have a fight on their hands.
Most Expensive – @ Los Angeles Lakers (11/28/14) | Average Ticket Price: $177.32 | Get-in Ticket Price: $20 | Staples Center parking: $3.30
Minnesota’s most expensive game of November comes in the Staples Center when they take on the Lakers. This L.A. contest is definitely a winnable game thanks to the new depths the Lakers have sunk to, but few games in Los Angeles will ever be truly “cheap.” That being said, LA parking near the Staples Center can be found for roughly $3 so fans in the Los Angeles area won’t have to pay too much to park.
This should be an offensive battle as neither team plays much defense. It will be an uphill battle for Minnesota, but regardless of how this one turns out, fans can expect an offensive display and a lot of points.
