MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - After tallying two road wins, the Minnesota Timberwolves have their first home game of the season Monday night at Target Center and will honor late head coach Flip Saunders with a video tribute. Fans are also invited to write a memory on a poster in the skyway near Mayo Clinic Square.
