My how time flies when you're snow-bound and your favorite NBA team is lottery-bound once again. But! Much like the notion that the first day of Spring is only 45 short days away, hope springs eternal for fans of the Minnesota Timberwolves (at least, hope springs on Fridays).
Let's get this party started with the Fact that the Timberwolves are 8-10 against teams from the NBA Eastern conference. According to this site, they play 32 games against Eastern teams in the season and 50 against teams from the West. Based on this imbalanced schedule, if the Wolves were in the East, and had the same respective conference winning percentages against in-conference and out-of-conference teams, they would now have about 15 wins, and be only 6 games out of the 8th play-off seed.
What other Feel-Good Facts do you have for Fellow Fans on this Frigid Friday?
