In another Minnesota Timberwolves loss to the Denver Nuggets, Jarred Vanderbilt finally got his shot — and he DID NOT disappoint. On today’s pod, we discuss a variety of topics that suggest the Wolves might just be a normal bad team.

  • Vanderbilt proving his worth. But what is his role going forward? Can he play next to Naz Reid? Is that his only way into the rotation after Josh Okogie returns (probably next game)?
  • Juancho Hernangomez showing the confident version of the player he was signed to be. Plus: Why Juancho’s synergy with Malik Beasley is encouraging.
  • How the rotations in the fourth quarters of both of the Denver games were costly. Is it possible for the Wolves to run out a group that can stem the tide in 4th to get to closing time? What could have Ryan Saunders done differently?
