Were you expecting a nice win? On today’s pod, we talk about the Minnesota Timberwolves’ “ugly” win against the Oklahoma City Thunder — and how this is kind of the only way they can win right now. Topics include:
- D’Angelo Russell’s game-winner
Why this was a slight upgrade from hero ball this time.
- Taking stock of the DLo-Ricky Rubio pairing with a numbers dive
The Timberwolves have been outscored by 81 points in the 141 minutes DLo and Rubio have shared the floor this season. Why Saunders is sticking with it?
- Should Rubio be closing games?
What is the best closing five?
- DLo speaks glowingly of Jaden McDaniels (audio included)
Is it just time to both start and close games with McDaniels?
- Making the case for a new starting lineup: Karl-Anthony Towns, Jaden McDaniels, Anthony Edwards, Malik Beasley, D’Angelo Russell.
