Games on National TV: Wolves 3, Celtics 19

The schedule for the 2007-2008 NBA season was released today after reportedly being delayed due to the Celtics acquisition of Garnett.

According to the Timberwolves schedule, only three of the team's games will be broadcast on national television next season: two on NBA TV and one on ESPN.

The Wolves lone game on ESPN marks Garnett's return to Minnesota, one of 19 times a non-playoff Celtics game will be shown on national tv next season. Unsurprisingly, Boston's home opener is scheduled to air on ESPN and is the first of six games that month the team has on national tv. The first Wolves game to be broadcast to a larger audience is the team's Dec 26 game at Golden State, almost two months into the season.
