The season opener at San Antonio is sweet. So is the Christmas night game against the Lakers. But there's a lot more to look forward to on the Timberwolves' 2017-18 schedule. 

Here are 10 games that stand out above the rest. 

Minnesota is a feature team in 25 nationally televised games next season. For fans watching in Minnesota, only 17 of those (10 on ESPN, 7 on TNT) won't be blacked out. The other eight are on NBATV, which will be blacked out locally if Fox Sports North is carrying the game. 

Not mentioned in the table is the appeal of the new uniforms the Wolves are wearing this season. There are four fresh looks in all, but only two have been revealed.
