So who saw the Minnesota Timberwolves beating the Utah Jazz? Better question: When was the last time the Wolves won back-to-back games without Karl-Anthony Towns being the main reason?

On today’s pod, we get into some observations from that win in Utah, including:

  • D’Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley stepping up with Towns again in foul trouble
  • Josh Okogie playing defense at an All-Defensive Team level and Jarrett Culver continuing to shine
  • Power Forward Problems. The dismal play of Jake Layman and Juancho Hernangomez. Why Okogie is the best power forward on the roster. And do the Wolves need to start Naz Reid over Layman against the Lakers on Sunday?
  • Assessing Ryan Saunders as a coach. What have we seen in these two games?
  • Why I think Anthony Edwards is the favorite to win Rookie of the Year
