Timberwolves will play against an Israeli team

The Maccabi Bazan Haifa team

The Minnesota Timberwolves often host preseason basketball games, what makes this year special is that one game will be against an international team. On October 16, the Timberwolves are playing the Maccabi Bazan Haifa team from Israel, marking the first time the Minnesota Timberwolves have ever played a non-American team in Minnesota. A couple years ago they traveled to Turkey to play a Turkish team, but they have never been the host before.

I know I can't wait to see how the Timberwolves stack up against an international league, but what about you? Do you want to see the Timberwolves play more international games? Against who? Or should we just stick to the NBA?

If you can read Hebrew, you can read more about the team here (I think...).
