With a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night, the Minnesota Timberwolves are no longer on a winning streak. But they have won five of their last seven and are beginning show signs of an identity. Britt Robson of The Athletic joins the show to discuss the Wolves hot streak and the bumps that have come along the way. We discuss:

  • What went wrong down the stretch against the Pelicans
  • The late-game pecking order — our individual preferences between KAT, DLo and Ant, and what we are gleaning Chris Finch’s preference might be
  • The stylistic defensive identity under Finch and how Gersson Rosas can choose to empower that style with future roster moves
  • The increasingly likely possibility that the Wolves fall down to the 6th slot in the tanking standings — and the impact of the odds of keeping the pick falling from 40.1% to 27.6%
