Saturday’s win was just the third Game 1 win for the Timberwolves in 14 all-time tries (3-11). Tuesday, they seek their first 2-0 lead in any series since winning the first two games against Denver in 2003-2004, which was also the last season the Wolves had home court advantage in any postseason series.

That first round series against Denver in 2004 stands as the only time the Wolves have ever lead a series 2-0. they went on to beat the Nuggets four games to one on their way to the Western Conference Finals.
