This weekend's NBA schedule features three nights full of games. The Minnesota Timberwolves tip off the action Friday with a home game against the Golden State Warriors. The game is set for a 7 p.m. CT start at Minnesota's Target Center.

Minnesota (5-3) and Golden State (4-4) enter Friday night's game as second-place teams in their respective divisions. The Timberwolves are a half-game behind the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Northwest Division, and the Thunder sit two games back of the Los Angeles Clippers in the Pacific.

Two nationally-televised games highlight ESPN's coverage Friday night. The Jazz and 76ers tip off from Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center at 6 p.m. CT. That is followed by a 8:30 p.m. CT game between the Grizzlies and Knicks at the FedEx Forum in Memphis.

On Saturday, the Chicago Bulls travel to Los Angeles' Staples Center for a marquee matchup at 8 p.m. CT with the Clippers. Mike D'Antoni will likely make his debut as head coach for the Lakers on Sunday when LA hosts the Houston Rockets at 8:30 p.m. CT.
