1/2 Way There, pt. ii

The goods are below the fold.

As we mentioned in the last post, the Wolves' main source of (relative) success over the last 20 games was the improvement at the power forward position.  This can be traced to a single player:

Love isn't the greatest defender in the world but his offensive efficiency is so out-of-this-world good for a 21 year old big with less than 60 games started that it more than makes up for any deficiencies on the defensive end of the court. 

Here are the floor time stats after the first 20 games:

Again, Kevin Love is so far and away the best player on this team right now it's really not even a contest.  Here's hoping that Al Jefferson can get back to full speed as soon as possible.

OK, that about does it for the raw data post.  I'm going to follow this up with a post about Flynn v. Sessions and another one that ties up some of the loose ends with all of this data.  Right now, I'm running out of room for this post and there's not enough space to do what I need to do. 

Until later.
