  • Again raising the question: Does Karl-Anthony Towns need to be shooting more?
  • Why the Wolves shot selection suggests an offensive burst should be coming
  • The first bad defensive game in a season where the defense has exceeded expectations
  • Injury fallout, and what will change if Patrick Beverley, D’Angelo Russell or Naz Reid have to miss time with their injuries
  • The KAT and Naz pairing resurfacing
