After trading away star player Kevin Love, the Minnesota Timberwolves were not expected to compete in a deep Western Conference. Minnesota is where most expected them with the worst record in the West. Only the New York Knicks are stopping the Timberwolves to having the worst record in the NBA.
Love will return to Minnesota on January 31 for the most expensive remaining home game of the season at the Target Center. Cavaliers vs Timberwolves tickets currently have an average price of $224.35 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $40. It is the only game for the rest of the season with an average price above $200.
On February 9, Minnesota will welcome in the Atlanta Hawks for the least expensive remaining game of the regular season. The current average price for Hawks vs Timberwolves tickets is $47 with a get-in price of $5.
While Minnesota is not close to the playoff hunt, they might have found a future superstar in Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins, acquired as part of the Love trade, leads the team with 14.7 points per game, for players that have played more than 10 games. Kevin Martin has averaged 20.4 points per game, but has only appeared in nine games this season.
