On today’s podcast, we mine for silver linings from the Minnesota Timberwolves Monday evening loss to the Brooklyn Nets. After a stinker of home and home series against the Houston Rockets over the weekend, the Wolves showed life in Brooklyn. We discuss:

  • What happened down the stretch run of the 4th quarter? Why did the final shot again end up being an off-balance leaner by Malik Beasley? How will D’Angelo Russell’s presence be felt in late-game situations once he returns to the lineup?
  • Jaden McDaniels glow-up since becoming a starter, and his growing profile as a wing-stopper with his performance against James Harden on Monday
  • Jaylen Nowell making the most of his role this season and the potency of his midrange jump shot
