Tonight is the Wolves' 3rd shot at their 1st winning streak this season. In John Hollinger's Playoff Odds article today, he put the Wolves "best" projected finish at 36-46, with their predicted finish at 18-64. With Kevin Love's return, though, this Wolves team looks completely reenergized after stumbling through a terrible start.
The Raptors are 4-6 in their last 10 games and site at 9-13 overall, which is good enough for 2nd place in the Atlantic. After a busy offseason (the Raptors were the only team with more new players on opening day than the Wolves), the Raptors were thinking Finals. But after a mediocre start, convincing Chris Bosh that Toronto is a place he can win has likely moved to the top of Bryan Colangelo's priorities.
