After entering the All-Star break with a 33-point loss to the Charlotte Hornets, naturally, the Minnesota Timberwolves started their second half of the season with a 30-point blowout win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night. On today’s pod we get into why the Timberwolves are going for it — trying to win in the second half of the season — in spite of their 7-29 record at the break. We discuss:

  • How I’ve been hearing the Wolves are “trying to win” during the second half and are “buyers” entering the trade deadline
  • Why they can pursue wins while simultaneously dancing around the elephant in the room that is their 2021 lottery pick
  • Jaylen Nowell, Jaden McDaniels and Naz Reid refusing to miss as the Wolves second-unit propelled the victory
  • Our first glimpse at KAT embracing Chris Finch’s KAT-centric offense
