Wolves Weigh The Benefits Of Upcoming Road Trip

Folks, I hope you caught a Timberwolves home game last week because now you won’t be able to do so until Sunday, March 22.

On Monday, the Wolves headed to Houston where they’ll begin a 12-day, six-game road trip. It’ll be the longest road trip of Wolves head coach Ryan Saunders’ NBA career.

There are obvious disadvantages of being on the road for that long: players and coaches don’t have the support of home game fans and have to be away from their families for an extended period.

But being on the road for two weeks also provides the Wolves with plenty of opportunities to build team chemistry when the majority of their days revolve around spending time with no one but each other.
