According to the San Antonio Express News, the San Antonio Spurs will begin the 2017-2018 regular season on ESPN at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves on October 18. The start of the regular season has been moved up a week in an effort to provide more rest for players.
The Timberwolves are an up-coming team helmed by Tom Thibodeau with a promising young core of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. They also added All-Star Jimmy Butler and veteran guard Jeff Teague over the summer.
The rest of the schedule will be released soon, but reports also indicate that the Spurs will not play on Christmas this year.
