On today’s pod, we breakdown the Minnesota Timberwolves victory — if you can call it that — over the Houston Rockets on Friday night and look forward to the return of Malik Beasley on Saturday. We discuss:
- The Wolves closing the game on a 22-0 run. Running through the Rockets 15 pathetic, scoreless possessions to close the fame.
- Anthony Edwards getting subbed out before the run began, not closing a game for the second time in four games
- Beasley’s return and what that will mean for the Wolves offense. Going through his elite offensive numbers prior to his suspension.
- Tanking standings check! Does this win signal the Wolves will certainly pass the Rockets in the bottom of the standings? What other teams could threaten the Wolves for having a worse record at season’s end? How will that impact the odds of keeping the pick?
