With the Cleveland Cavaliers in town against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night, tickets aren't easy to attain.

Wolves wing Jimmy Butler knows all eyes will be on this game, with LeBron James, and former Wolves forward Kevin Love at Target Center.


"Everybody's got a tough match-up tonight. The way they play, they have a lot of talented individuals. You can't be afraid to help someone when they're beat and have the next guy help you. I think that's going to be our biggest challenge tonight," said Butler.

As for the Cavs, Love sees a lot of improvement with the Wolves and believes tonight's game will have a much different feel than other games he played against his former team.

"Great resurgence, and they have a ton of confidence forming an identity and the crowd having their backs. It's great to see in Minneapolis. It's gonna make for what it looks like playoff basketball and that's going to be fun for this city," said Love.
