Dear Timberwolves fans,
The Timberwolves won again tonight—this time, against the Blazers:
Listen: I’m not here to summarize the stats but man, that was an pretty impressive win against a Blazers team that could light up the scoreboard with their speed.
(Just not tonight, thankfully)
Here’s what else stood out to me:
There’s a lot to unpack from that tweet, so let’s break it down:
First, the Timberwolves won their last five home games.
Second, you add the three game winning steak at home to the last five, you get eight straight wins at home.
Third, this: The Timberwolves are a half game behind the third seed…the third seed!
So what does this all mean? At 29-16, the Timberwolves are on fire! I mean, I was happy with the Timberwolves ending the season with the eighth seed but hey, if it’s the…the third seed, okay!!
First, let’s see if they could tie the Spurs for the third seed. The Timberwolves can (most) certainty do that—or die trying, so to speak—this Tuesday against the Magic.
Go Timberwolves! Get your howl on.
