Timberwolves In Mexico

Timberwolves In Mexico

The NBA is back in Mexico for a regular-season game Wednesday night, and the San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves are learning there’s an additional rival to conquer: The altitude.

During a practice game Tuesday, Minnesota’s players looked noticeably exhausted. The Timberwolves and Spurs will play Wednesday night at 9:30 p.m. EST. Sitting at 7,350 feet above sea level, Mexico’s capital is at a far higher elevation than Denver, which is the NBA’s highest venue at 5,280 feet.

Minnesota, which will be the home team, has never played in Mexico.  Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman said he plans to modify his strategy a bit to take the city’s altitude into account.

The Spurs have played five games in Mexico.
