On today’s pod, we get right into where the Minnesota Timberwolves broke down in the second half on national TV against the Golden State Warriors. How what played out in the third quarter made Josh Okogie unplayable offensively, and how the Wolves’ defense became untenable without him. We dig into the Wolves conundrum with Okogie’s shooting — and how it’s wishful thinking to think he can be much more than he has been.
On a brighter note, we highlight how Naz Reid has thrived since moving into the starting lineup for Karl-Anthony Towns — 14 points, 6 rebound, and 3 blocks per game on 58% shooting from 2 and 40% shooting from 3. Why Naz is the physical embodiment of the Timberwolves’ offensive game plan. And can Naz and KAT share the floor once Towns returns?
