The Minnesota Timberwolves return with a retooled squad in back-to-back New Year’s games during a compressed season of just 66 games. Rookie Ricky Rubio leads the new-look lineup, as the 2009 NBA draft’s No. 5 overall pick dazzles slack-jawed fans and opponents with deft dribbling and high-flying alley-oops. Center Kevin Love continues to get the job done in the paint, hoping to build upon last year’s All-Star stats of 20.2 points and 15.2 rebounds per game.
On New Year’s Day, watch Love lock horns with NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki, as the two battle for post position and fence with squeegees in hand. Rookie Derrick Williams and the rest of the youthful roster greet the veteran Spurs on January 2. Look for Head Coach Rick Adelman to test San Antonio’s weary legs as he orchestrates an aggressive game plan to dash into passing lanes, push the ball up court, and slow down the opposition by setting several snare traps. During breaks in the five-on-five action, T-shirt-sporting fans can stretch their legs by miming either the dancers’ choreography or Crunch the mascot’s stationary backflips.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon’s mobile app.
